That’s A Wrap! Holiday Season 2015 {Recap}

Our holiday season was filled with family, fun memories and exciting events… but I must say I am still exhausted.  I feel like I am finally getting caught up on normal life and actually getting around to cleaning the house. Yikes! #thestruggleisreal 

 I took some time to look back on all of the fun we had with our two littles, and I am so thankful for our first holiday season as a family of four.  Enjoy a photo {recap} of some of our festive holiday memories.

Christmas Season started the day after Thanksgiving for us, with listening to Christmas music and decorating the house. It was so much fun sharing Christmas spirit with the girls! CLICK HERE to see more details on how we decorated this year.

While my brother and his family were in town visiting, we took the cousins to a fun snowy event.  A company brought in a mound of snow for the kids to play in, and it was so much fun bundling them up for the snow… even though it was 75 degrees outside.IMG_6149snowchristmas

Paisley loved sitting on the stage and singing her favorite Christmas songs at her Preschool Christmas Pageant.  It was a proud mommy moment for me,  watching her sparkle on the stage.IMG_7221 IMG_7224Once again… Payton was not a fan of Santa.  CLICK HERE to see this year’s Santa visit at Bass Pro Shop.christmas

Christmas Lights Boat Parade.  It was a chilly night on the water enjoying our little ones shrieking with excitement, as they watched the boats float by.  It was a very unique experience and we are thankful to have shared it with great friends.
