Christmas 2015

We had a fantastic time celebrating Christmas this year! We kicked off the season with our traditional North Pole Breakfast to welcome back our elf.

 We tried something new and went a saw the Stewart Family Light display this year and it did not disappoint! So many lights!
 Cookie decorating as a family. :)

 Our sibling gift exchange is always one of my favorite things!

 We had a pretty big Christmas this year! Madeleine got the IPhone she's been dying to have, and Harrison got his Xbox. Charlotte only wanted school stuff for playing school.

I love Christmas day. We stay home and in our jammies and play with new stuff and watch Christmas movies and I love being holed up in our cozy house with our little family.

Harrison's Birthday

We celebrated Harrison's birthday in a big way this year! He and his friends love, love, love football and play pretty much every day at recess. So, it seemed a football party was the perfect thing this year! One of his best friends, Jace, has a birthday just a few days before Harrison, and since December is always so packed, we decided to do a joint party for both boys. Matt used his connections and got us the FPS indoor practice facility which is absolutely amazing! There were so many friends that showed up to celebrate! The boys played football for a solid 2 hours, and probably would have kept playing!

We did autograph footballs for both boys.

And, eye black, of course!
 Cupcakes from Sams, topped with these tiny football helmets.
 Party favors were mason jars that looked like footballs....
 and football cookies tied to the back.
 The whole group! I'm thankful that Harrison has such a great group of friends!
 And the birthday boys!
 We celebrated at home on his real birthday.

 And after dinner and cake, the boys headed out to watch some Razorback basketball. Such a fun time celebrating my favorite 9 year old!
