It's a Wrap!

The Christmas season is behind us which has left me behind on blogging! This year we decided to stay home and be in the moment of Christmas. While I love the anticipation of traveling, there is something to be said for being home. It allowed us to create our own traditions which in turn created an atmosphere of  wonder, excitement, and peace. We were lucky enough to have Papa Raftery, Auntie Evie, and Uncle Joe join us which truly put the icing on the cake! 

Santa's cookies and Jesus's birthday cake were TOP priority! 

and we managed to squeeze in some lovin' along the way! 

We couldn't forget Rudolph so we whipped up a batch of "reindeer food". 

Santa brought Nolan his OWN bike and helmet...what a hit! 

The boys stayed busy with Subbuteo (a favorite past-time of the Raftery's)....

while momma was cookin' in the kitchen! 

Miss K was oh so happy in her earmuffs

We made our way to Philly and the kids discovered one of the BEST children's museums. It's called the Please Touch Museum and our kiddos took the name to heart. They soaked up some daddy time and had some self discovery of their own... 



and my munchkin! 

This "time" together as a family flew by but it truly was a time we could connect. No appointments, no therapies, no schedules - just US. 

I can't leave out our Murder Mystery party...good company, good wine, and great suspense! 

A little sidenote is in order as well: Landon is STILL seizure free...4 months and counting! Our God is so faithful! Landon has mastered another milestone - he can now recite his ABC's!!! WOOO HOOO!
