Our Christmas

First up, our Christmas card. We went with Minted again and once again they did not disappoint.

We started off the season with our neighborhood's "Breakfast with Santa." Ava was all about the breakfast, but not so much about Santa.

Ava loved the Christmas lights and Christmas tree, and even though we put the tree in jail she still loved to pet the bottom ornaments.

And occasionally she'd make off with one.

Checking out Christmas lights in the 'hood:

Loved spending the afternoon with these girls:

Since we were spending Christmas in La Grange, Santa paid a visit to our house early. Ava woke up to all of this loot:

First thing she did? Jump in the cozy coupe.

Then it was time to hit up the slide.

Decided she needed her new kicks on.

And of course "Christmas" morning isn't complete without sausage balls.

She quickly decided that her favorite way to go down the slide is head first. Pray for me.

We loaded up and headed east, where we spent lots of time with family, ate lots of good food, and opened way too many presents.

And finally, all decked out for New Year's:

We had an awesome Christmas and I'm so thankful we were all relatively healthy this year. We continue to be so blessed in so many ways, and in constant awe of how this little one is growing and changing every day!
