We Party Hard

The level of exhaustion I feel this morning is not one I have felt in awhile. Holy moly did we celebrate over the past few days. Jared, T and I visited both sides of my family on Thanksgiving day, visited some of his family the day after that and then celebrated an early Christmas on Saturday with my immediate family. T hung in there like a champ for the most part which was such a relief. He struggled getting to sleep some since he was overly tired, but once he was out he was out for the night, like normal. I know I'm biased but seriously, I have the best baby, haha. I joke with Jared that we shouldn't have any more because there's no way a second baby will be this easy! ;)

I loved being at my Mamaw's house on Thanksgiving Day. While a little piece of my heart is always sad that my grandpa isn't here anymore, it's amazing to see our family grow each year, too. There are now 4 great-grandbabies and another one due any day now. I love seeing cousins and aunts love on my little guy and getting to love on their little ones right back. Between all the chaos and laughter there was plenty of food and fellowship with my family.

Since my sister and her family were in town, we celebrated Christmas and exchanged gifts with them while they were here. It was so fun getting to watch my little niece's excitement over all things Peppa Pig and hear how grown up she sounded! It blows my mind how fast kids change- she is so smart and funny! We enjoyed gifts, plenty of  m&m cookies and laughing at my mom's creative gift tags.
The last few days involved lots of driving around and lots of house hopping but it was all worth it. I love sharing our little boy with our family and it's so special having another member in our family this year. I can only imagine the next month will feel just as crazy, but just as special :)

  6. Sounds like you guys had such a fun time!!! Traveling around like that is exhausting but so worth all the memories. Love the little gift tags your mom does! My dad did clever little things like that sometimes when we were younger. Hopefully you get some down time today to relax!
