A Merry Little Christmas

I feel like Christmas kind of crept up on me this year! I'm usually all about doing every single Christmasy thing I can think of leading up to the holiday.  We've had an extremely busy last few weeks with celebrating Cohen's birthday, selling our home, moving into a new home, and making sure to still make the boys' Christmas magical- it's just been a bit of chaos.  I do love the sentimental feelings that come along with Christmas, as we get to slow down a little bit and spend time together with family.  It's cleansing to reflect on Christ's life and refocus on what is most important, especially with all of the stress and crazy that has been going on around here. We are getting settled in the new home now and feeling extremely blessed and grateful for this crazy, wonderful life we have. I hope everyone had a merry Christmas filled with love! I know we did!

We didn't even have time to get up our tree this year :(
We joined in with my Mom & Dad to decorate theirs and get in the holiday spirit earlier this month.

Christmas Eve wouldn't be the same without making candy and dipping chocolates!!

Cute little carolers.
Christmas jammie time!
Santa found us!
Cohen didn't know what was going on... he liked the wrapping paper and bows most.
We woke up to a white Christmas and Hayes could not wait to play in it!
My dad drove the kids around a big field behind the four-wheeler.
They were in heaven.

Can't believe my baby is turning 1! We celebrated a little early this weekend because my parents will be out of town on his actual birthday. I had lots of fun planning Cohen's Winter "ONEderland" over the past few weeks (Okay I've been thinking about it for a few months). Thank goodness for my mom who is always willing to help me with my projects and my littles so that I can get things done! Cohen obviously didn't know what was going on, but I wanted him to feel especially loved and special! Here is a picture overload of Cohen's birthday party fun.

My mom made these "indoor snowballs" for the party. Aren't they perfect?!

Mom, Dad, and the birthday boy!

Cohen went to town on his cake! We had to take it away because he literally would have eaten the entire thing.
It was the best.

Thanks family for coming and supporting our little Coey baby!
