This Christmas was just perfect. The air in our house was just full of joy this holiday season. Thankful.
Tiny princess opened pretty much every present I put under the tree.
Hudson just screeched of excitement every time he saw baby Jesus. Even his all boy mentality thought about him. With the most serious look on his face he asked "momma do you think baby Jesus poops in the potty?" Yes son I do so you should always to.
Family photos were a joke this year. 3 attempts and this is by far the winner. I will get a Christmas card out with all 5 of us next year! I may need to start trying soon;)
I'm always a sucker and let them open a present...or three early.
Love holiday baking for friends and family!
My girls on Christmas Eve at Brandon's grandparents. 
Tried for a pic with the boy...,
This crane was worth every penny. Keeps him occupied for hours. {TRAIN LOVER}
This little bit had a great 1st Christmas! Looking forward to many more with my sweet family.

Ugly sweater love.

Melissa and Kristen had their annual chrsitmas party Tuesday. So much fun!!! We took a little trip to savers so I could find the perfect ugly sweater.
Found this little gem. It was deceiving because it has pumpkins and apples on it but the bear is wearing a Christmas sweater and skirt. I guess when you shell out big bucks on nice sweaters you want it to last you from fall to Christmas?!
So I just used my glue gun to jazz it up a bit. Added a little joy from my wrapping paper. Glued some presents on there. And glued a mini Christmas tree ornament over the apple tree. Oh and did I forget to mention the bears skirt lifted up?! So of course I had to add a little holiday cheer to her underwear;)
I told the girls I was going to write ho ho ho. But thought it might be a tad risqué!
We had to "sell" our shirts to win. So happy jade was able to catch me modeling my awesome sweater in this lovely pose. Proud of my ugly sweater it one first prize. It was close though. Erin's cat sweater was fierce!
These ladies are so fun! Thankful for their friendship.

Snow days.

And by snow days I mean FIVE snow days!! I can't remember ever having that many days of snow in Arkansas. 
We have played in the snow multiple multiple times!!! Hudson never says he's cold while he's in the snow because he's   afraid I will make him go in.
He would stay out as long as I would let him! 
We have brought bowls and bowls of snow inside. Made snow ice cream. Had snowball fights. If it involves snow we have probably done it!
It was my bright idea to bring it in the house and then I spill it everywhere!!!
Hudson is going to be mighty sad when it melts. And I may be a tad sad because he will do anything I saw for a bowl of snow! I may just have to freeze some!?;)

Sibling love

Just a little coloring:) Love how much she loves him. She really goes out of her way for him. 
He has to do everything his sissy does! Love hearing him yell up the stairs for her. If he wants her he just stands on the bottom stair and yells "kiiiiinwe" in the cutest voice you have ever heard.
My girls!:) They have such the age gap but I pray they have a close bond even so. 
Building canned good towers. I may have two future architects right there:)
And of course the two littles are just crazy about each other. Hudson refers to her as the tiny princess or Analyn Kate. And when people talk to her he makes sure to say that's HIS baby! He's a tad possessive but what good big brother isn't?!

Analyn Kate

Never thought I would have a blue eyed baby! But I do:) love her bright blues!She loves playing in the pantry just like Hudson did. 
I think she just looks like a baby doll in this picture! 
She is PICKY!!! I tried every baby food you could imagine. Store bought. Home made. Baby cereals. Applesauce. But she HATES them all.
But she loved biscuits and gravy!! So I guess we will just skip baby food and move on to the good stuff! I think it's a texture thing. She won't eat banana baby food but will eat almost an entire banana.
She took a good nap after getting her belly full at Cracker Barrel:)
She loves her daddy and that warms my heart!!! She says dada! My first kid who didnt say mama first. Guess I can't be too mad since he's a pretty awesome daddy;)
