Twins Genders Reveal!

We couldn't wait for our Level 2 Ultrasound to see the twins and obviously find out the genders. Nate and I found out at the appointment, and then we ordered cupcakes from our favorite Cocoa & Fig with filling to tell family! They did our wedding cupcakes and we just love them. We were all excited for the reveal!

My mom, Nate's dad and sister, and of course Bradley were at the reveal, and we Facetimed with my brother, SIL and nephews. We made everyone guess and my mom guessed two boys, Nate's dad and sister guessed one of each, my bro and SIL guessed two girls, our nephew Tyler guessed one of each, and nephew Blake guessed two boys.

We cut open the first and it was pink! Girl!

Then we cut open the second - also pink!

I think most of the family was shocked that it is two girls because we have so many boys! My parents only have grandsons, so this is a first! Blake was probably the most upset - he wanted more boys to play with. :) Bradley just wanted cupcakes. 

I'm so glad we did a mini gathering instead of just texting everyone. It was much more exciting to make them wait during the day and see all at once. :) And delicious!

At our 12 week ultrasound (for twins) we had the tech guess what they appeared to be and she said girls. We knew to take that with a grain of salt because one of my best friends has twin girls and was told boys at her 12 week ultrasound! So even though I kept thinking girls, I wasn't sure. 

I actually had purchased these outfits around Christmas from Walmart because I thought they were too cute and knew they would be gone by the time we found out. Obviously I kept the receipt in case I wouldn't be needing them. :)

A few bump shots! Growing quite a bit every day!!

This shirt has more meaning now. :)

The day after our reveal my mom took Bradley and me to Carters to pick out some girl clothes (Bradley got some treasures, too) since we have none! It was so fun to see all the cute pieces! And so weird to buy TWO of things! I'm so obsessed with these little unicorns for the nursery. Thanks mom!

We already are rocking and rolling on the nursery because we had a painter scheduled for this weekend! We need to get moving on things because once I hit the 30 week mark I know I will be very immobile and uncomfortable. So I am doing as much as I can now. Bring on all things girly!

Christmas 2016

I think I am now officially done with the Christmas posts! :) Christmas 2016 is in the books! On Christmas Eve we went to church with Nate's family. I think this is the first time I let the twin bump show itself! :)

Why do toddlers hate pics so much?

Then we came back to open a couple presents.

Bradley started ripping open Christmas presents when we weren't quite ready! This kid loves Christmas!

So many new toys! He opened up clothes and threw them to the ground. Ha!

We put out cookies, milk and reindeer treats for Santa hoping he would make it to our house!

He made it!

I was a little excited for my new toaster from Nate!

She's a beaut!

Bradley got lots of coloring books, crayons and markers. He loves scribbling!

Sprinkles was being funny and hid behind the tree.

He loves this Aquadoodle mat!

His dolls that he doesn't like. :)

Then we cooked up a storm for Nate's family to come over for Christmas dinner.

I wore my Christmas best. :)

Bradley loved showing off for everyone!

Turns out everyone loves to color. :)

Then it was back in matching jammies for bedtime stories. :)

I hope your Christmas was merry and bright!

Christmas House Tour

I'm so sad the Christmas decor came down this week! My parents were here this weekend so I left it all up for their visit then it came down on New Year's Day. I guess it is time to document it! Upstairs cupcake tree post can be seen here. Welcome to the North Pole!

I will start with the family room since I always start up front, and really our decor is the same as always. The built ins give me lots of space to display my Christmas crap!

Love these Funko Pops! Elf on the Shelf, Rudolph, Buddy the Elf, Santa and Clark Griswold. :)

I kept our Santa dishes out on the built ins because they were too cute to put in a cupboard.

I love fun Christmas colors! 

I knocked over the ornament garland TWICE this season. I need to get some hooks to keep this puppy in place. 

I probably knocked it off once trying to take this picture. :)

Cheers to the family room! (and toys everywhere)

Our stockings are also still in the family room, just not on the mantle. The garland is so giant it was pushing them off. I should get command hooks to hang stockings AND to try and keep the garland on there. Hmmm... For now I liked them a lot hanging on our banister.

I only snapped a couple pics of the kitchen. You can see a few more kitchen pics on this post. Of course I had my marshmallow mugs out! 

And my friend Nicole decorated my chalkboard in 2 seconds flat. Ugggh talented people!

Into the dining room! I have a mini quilt my grandma made and a couple trees.

Then it overlooks into the family room with our main Christmas tree! 

I love Christmas ornaments. :) I posted this year's ornament on Instagram and the previous post.

Oh Christmas Tree!

Now back to the sideboard! Bradley loves hugging this Santa and dragging him around. :)

He also reorganizes the items on here daily. My mini decorator. :)

I like to decorate my house, my toddler and myself for Christmas! :) Gingerbread nails for the win!

I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas!
