Welcome Baby Brynley!

So please to welcome the newest member of our clan, my niece, baby Brynley Paige Reeves, born on December 17th! She is simply precious and such a little blessing. Mandy ended up having to have a c-section after laboring all day- what a trooper she was! We finally got to go in and see the baby near midnight.

Ugly Sweater Christmas Party

So this year, our friends Lyn and Rob hosted an "Ugly Sweater" Christmas Party! Alan provided the prizes for best ugly sweater and a runner up for least effort as well. Carrie (pictured on the far right below) won top prize with her 'goose' sweater!

Matt custom made a Hanukkah sweat and was a close second!

Family, Friends and the Holidays!

Okay, I am way behind on my blogging, I know, bad Michelle. Forgive me. That's what I get for doing a week at Disney in December, welcoming a niece to the world and all the other craziness that goes along with Christmas.

So yes, we had a fabulous Christmas! We spent our usual Christmas Eve at my mom's house, as is our tradition. We always get together, eat, drink and are merry. We always have mexican food, consisting of chips, dips, tacos, enchiladas and all the fixins!

Then everyone's favorite, present time! Alissa and Chris kindly got Alan a snuggie! The gift that keeps you warm all year long!

Will got a talking trash can that he loves. He also got his train table from mama and papa! He got a cash register too and fake money. He really loved all his great gifts!

We also enjoyed our tree this year- all decorated in almost exclusively disney! William was very good about not touching or messing with it- okay, most of the time anyhow! He loved to turn on the lights every night.

All in all, another wonderful and memorable Christmas eve with family and friends. We enjoyed it at my parent's new house too, tons of room to play and enjoy!

Let It Snow!

We didn't see any snow in December, but it arrived in January! On Sunday, we got probably 2 inches of snow at our house. NE of us they got up to 6.5 inches! It was beautiful watching the heavy flakes fall all day long from inside the warmth of the house.

Even the dogs cozied up next to the heater to stay warm!
William didn't last long outside, he wasn't sure what to make of it and there wasn't quite enough to make a snow man.
