Catching up after the holidays

Wow. It was a busy holiday season for us! We went to Ohio for Christmas this year, which was a lot of fun. My in-laws house was full so we stayed at a hotel (we love staying at hotels) which meant 3 nights of Micah sleeping in between us. We loved it. He will not sleep with us at home (he prefers his crib) so I love when he does it - love falling asleep holding his hand and seeing his sweet sleeping face in the morning. He did, however, get sick in Ohio on Christmas day (tummy trouble) so that was not much fun. Of course Kevin and I got it 1 day after we got home - on the same day - again, not fun.

Here are some of the highlights from our time in Ohio...

Helping Grandma cook. I cried a little bit while taking this picture. Kevin always says he decided to be a chef after helping his mom cook while growing up, so it was very cool to see Micah doing the same thing his dad once did.

Opening presents with dad on Christmas morning.

Micah loved this big wheel (his cousin's) but wasn't big enough to push the pedals. That made him mad.

When we got home we had Christmas all over again...

Kevin got a drum pad. Micah really likes it.

I got new jeans. I was very excited.

Micah got Power Wheels. He absolutely loves it. He rides it all the time.

Hope your holiday was wonderful! Happy New Year!


  1. I love the look of excitement on your face about your new jeans!!! And Micah looks so cool on his power wheels. Happy New Year!

  2. Happy New Year!! I didn't know Kevin was a chef? How do you stay so skinny with a chef type husband? Micah is beyond cute, as usual.

  3. Looks like a mostly great Christmas! Happy new years!

  4. Grandparents rock! Looks like you had a great Christmas and Happy New Year to you guys too!

  5. I love the picture of you with the jeans. They must be something darn special to get a grin like that out of you....

  6. So glad you posted on our blog!!! It was so much fun meeting everyone Sunday! We just had a great time! Also great to meet you guys! What a great little family!
    We were pumped to move up the list a bit more, as our referrals have been SLOW to come in lately...
    I will follow you guys now on your journey.
    Micah is just like a little GAP add! So adorable!
