catch up.

The last few weeks/months have been such a blessing. We really got to spend a lot of time with family over the holiday break and then got to see our sweet niece AND sweet nephew for a whole weekend in Nashville!!! Just playing catch up with some of the pictures we took. 

Sweet Grandad and Granny.  We went to visit Granddad over Thanksgiving break and Christmas Day and it was so good to all be together. Baby Girl LOVES her Great Granddad and he seems pretty fond of the angel too :) Not the best pictures, but super sweet moments.

We went to see the Rockettes with our sweet friends, Jill and Logan. They are such a blessing in our lives and we are so thankful that we are such kindred spirits! and if you know me (or Jill) at all, you know that we LOVED the show. (including the live animals which had us ROLLING by the end)

Celebrated Christmas at the White House on the 21st and was so thankful to spend some time with these special girls. So thankful for these women in in my life and sad that we couldn't ALL get together. Missed Louisa and Kaitlynn, but got to spend some time with them after Christmas :)

The 21st was mine and Andrew's 'Christmas Eve' together and we took one of his families traditions of looking at Christmas lights!!! It was so so so fun and our first Christmas was a blast :) So thankful that we are MARRIED. (married. married. husband and wife. crazy.)

Baby girl's first Christmas Eve and first Tiffany's box!!! It was so sweet and fun to watch her open her teaset!

Christmas Eve!!
The pictures below were on self-timer... you should SEE some of the outtakes. Hilarious. I literally laughed out loud when I uploaded them to my computer today.


Love this sweet Angel.  (Sorry for the lack-o-hairbow here, Tara)

Christmas with the Hutchens family! :) :) The girls LOVE Andrew and literally would play with him all day long. They love me too, but they LOVE their Andrew. The girls were so sweet and we love spending time with our sweet sweet friends. 
(Meri, did we actually get some decent photos? no way.)

So thankful.

After Kentucky, we came back home for a few days then headed up north to Cinci! :) Stopped at Perfect North on the way (ish) and skiied for the day!!! it. was. so. much. fun.  Josh and April were there too and we got to ski with them some!!!! Perfect end to a great day :)

Made it to Cinci and had such a relaxing and fun time being with Andrew's family. Tons of snow, sugar cookies, Barrett, everything. It was awesome and we were so thankful!!

We love this little boy so so so much!!!

Last (for this post) but not least, Stacy competed at the Farm Bureau Young Farmer's and Ranchers discussion meet in January!!! Last year it was in Hawaii... this year? Nashville, TN baby! haha Even though it might have disappointing for them, we were SUPER excited that they were in Nashville for the weekend!!! We had LOTS of snuggle time with this little one, and my parents got to stay at our apt. for the weekend :) Stacy did AWESOME and made the top four (in the nation, I might add). It was so fun!!!

I think this is hilarious. She LOVED the lights at the Opryland Hotel and was such a champ being sick and still being such a trooper.

Overall summary: We had a GREAT first Christmas. We loved spending time with our sweet families and it's been a great (but busy) 2013 so far! :)

Next up? Gramps' 94th birthday party! Way too many pictures to add to this post.
Happy Thursday!
