Well, hello there! It's been far too long and the thought of updating you on the past how ever many months it's been is quite overwhelming so I'll just start at Christmas. 

Christmas was pure magic this year and we soaked every minute up. The kids are at an age where they make it just too easy not to. We started December out with our first visit from one of Santa's elves. {A separate post will follow regarding some of our Elf on the Shelf mishaps, but overall it was a success.}; we had an impromptu milk and cookies party for all our little friends at our house one Sunday afternoon {another separate post to follow}; we hosted Christmas down in Pullman for the first time and it was so great to wake up at our house on Christmas morning; and finally, we are heading to a cabin in the mountains near Cle Elum tomorrow afternoon for four days to celebrate with Paul's family. I love when we can stretch the holiday out as much as possible because I'm always so sad to see it all come to an end.

For now, here are some pictures from our Christmas festivities:
Sprinkling reindeer food and searching for Santa and his sleigh before bed on Christmas Eve. 

Santa came! 

Good morning.

Singing Happy Birthday to Jesus before opening gifts. 
Santa knows this boy too well. The granola bars were his favorite stocking stuffer. He saw them and said, "I love granola bars!" Every morning Cooper wakes up asking for a granola bar because he has to have a snack to hold him out until breakfast can be made. He's a true boy! 


Ready for Christmas dinner. 

 Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
