Christmas 2011

O Christmas, it was so fun to go home and spend time with the family! We were on the go a lot (more than I desired to be:)) but it was so much fun. We hit up all of our favorite restaurants, hung with our friends, played Quirkle with the fam over and over, and just loved our time in B-town! Cody's parents are moving so he spent quite a bit of time helping to organize for their big move. We are happy because they are moving across town-hopefully just a few minutes from where we will be living! Below is the only picture I got of Cody and I-it is a great one though!

Christmas morning we spent with the Winterholler clan. It was such a blast. Aaron, Erika, and the boys were there and it made me realize just how much I miss them living in Omaha. I couldn't believe how adorable and BIG the boys have gotten since we saw them last. I loved my 20 second hugs from Brevin, watching Jace read words and cuddling with him, and having my arms get tired from holding mr. Holt! He is a big, happy boy! Cody's dad got him a hand gun...dun, dun, dun...I might have started crying when he opened it! Oops! It was so nice of him to buy it for him, and Cody was super excited about getting it.

After church on Christmas day we headed to my house. We had a way-too-long present opening session, and for the last present of all-NERF guns! I was much happier about this plastic gun than Cody's real one! haha. It was such a blast! The boys were running around the house, building barricades for hours and hours. We will totally be instituting this as a tradition in our home.

Christmas Eve was spent at Grandma and Grandpa Stott's house. It was a really special reading of Christ's birth this year, because Cody gave them a present of a new program for each person to read off of! He did such an amazing job-the programs are beautiful. We had a wonderful evening, as always.

My sis and I are due the EXACT SAME DAY with our babies! Is that crazy or what? We are so excited to have kiddos the same age. I couldn't love her anymore if I tried!
