Christmas 2015

We had a great Christmas!  Many of these were already on Instagram, but here is more. :) Our family of three (or I should say five, but we didn't get the little girls anything) celebrated on the 22nd.  Bradley chose to wear no pants. :)


One of the gifts Nate got me is this amazing Brussels Griffon mug!  If Sprinkles drank coffee she would look just like this. :)


Then the next day we flew to Chicago!  Parents - I am sure you already know but it is NOT safe to fly without your kids in car seats.  We had a pretty bumpy (and scary to me since I get anxious on planes) flight on our way to Chicago and I cannot even imagine trying to hold onto your baby during turbulence!  How awful!    Bradley slept right through it all in his seat!  I follow the page Car Seats for the Littles on Facebook where you can find out TONS of information  (like what to print and bring in case a flight attendant doesn't understand seats on planes and that it is not only ok but BEST to aft face, etc).  So join that group if you want to learn more!  But enough about that. :)


We now have 10 in our family!  My mom knit most of these (with help from talented Aunts of course).


It was so fun meeting our newest nephew!  I am too afraid to hold babies so I held him for about 45 seconds.  I get so nervous!


We went to the Santa Experience!  It was at Oak Brook Mall that had the most amazing lighted reindeer. 



It was super cute and was a tour through a house led by Shrek!  Then you meet Santa at the end.  Bradley still hates Santa.  


Shannon (the SIL) and I had to get the mini boots of cider!  Love!


Bradley LOVED playing with his cousins.


He thought they were too cool!


He even liked wrestling with them!


Papa is also fun to wrestle!


The SIL got these adorable mini donuts!  So festive!


The three musketeers getting snacks from Grandma in matching jammies!  


Blakey was Santa in the chimney!


So was Connor! :)


Blurry pic but Bradley was too funny running around on Christmas Eve with his cousins!


The neighborhood they live in gets luminaries on Christmas Eve.  We walked around with hot chocolate looking at the lights, and of course I had Pentatonix Christmas CD playing on my phone!



Family pic in Christmas jammies!


Cookies and milk for Santa!  I had to copy this set after seeing theirs...too cute!


Christmas morning fun!  Papa always comes with good surprises.


Bradley loved checking out his cousins toys.


And snacking with Grandma.


The SIL tracked down this mug for me!  I didn't purchase in Disney because I thought it was too pricey, then of course regretted it ever since.  SIL to the rescue!!


Peeking!


My parents got us all "ugly sweater" slippers of our favorite teams! :)


More matching jammies!



New Year's Eve we stayed in and hung out with some of our best friends, then watched Jessica Jones while drinking hot chocolate.  We were asleep by 10:30!  My kind of NYE! :)


I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
