Twins 6 Month Photos

The twins turn 8 months old this week so I better get their 6 month photos posted! Lindsey did such a great job capturing some adorable Christmas themed pics - especially when the girls were not in the best mood for the shoot! I'm so happy we have these sweet pics of them forever. :)

Christmas 2017

How is Christmas already over? I'm in my post Christmas depression so I needed to get these pics together and relive it a little. 

On Christmas Eve we made it to Christmas Eve service! We lasted about 30 minutes but whatever, we made it. :)

Jojo was excited!

I was super excited to finally wear my Shop Pink Blush dress that is long and just loose enough. I love their stuff because it can be worn for maternity or not maternity.

Nate was also excited to wear his Christmas apparel.

Then we hosted Nate's family for appetizers and hanging out. 

Bradley left out reindeer food,

cookies for Santa,

and we read 'Twas The Night Before Christmas.

Then the elves got to work!

Santa brought lots of Disney items! I posted this on Instagram. :)

My parents were in Chicago but my mom sent this pic of my Dad in his shirt. Love it!

Time to get up! Santa took a bite out of the cookie!

We propped up the girls with things to play with and let Bradley go nuts!

Santa brought Bradley his wish - a Christmas cookie!

Lots of Moana stuff!

Maui's fishhook! (We have already had to confiscate this a few times...)

Nate got me my ewok sweatshirt! :)

Sugared up.

I kept seeing this all over social media and finally put one out for our delivery drivers. I wish I had done it earlier because we didn't get many packages the week of Christmas, but a ton before! I plan on putting it out in November next year, and doing periodically throughout the year, too.

I am so sad Christmas is over but at least we have Disney coming up soon! I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!

Christmas Family Weekend

We were so excited for our Christmas family weekend that we had planned for earlier this month! My brother's family lives in Chicago and have three boys, we are in Minneapolis, and my parents live in Des Moines so anytime we can get together is always fun.

My parents arrived first and Papa showed up with donuts from Clear Lake, Iowa! 

I made lots of my favorite holiday side dishes to eat when they arrived.

And Bradley caught up on some reading while we were waiting for them (plane was delayed).

Chim relaxed on Grandma while waiting.

The next morning the cousins were so excited to find out Papa and Grandma are taking all of us to Disney! They might have been more excited that we got them Mickey and Minnie balloons. :)

The girls were dressed and ready for the announcement!

My SIL is one of my best friends and I get so excited when we are in the same state! I also force her to take fun pics with me. :) We had my favorite hot chocolate to celebrate with!

Papa had a kid or baby in his lap the entire weekend. :)

Mall of America time! 

We went when it opened so the kids could go on lots of rides! Wish we got a group pic.

The girls went shopping instead.

My little reindeer babies!

Cutie cousins watching a movie. We had pizza and movie time the rest of the day.

Sunday we took full family pics and it was FREEZING! Grandma and Carmen warming up in the car.

But Lindsey got some good ones! Isn't this the cutest of Grandma and the girls??


Best grandparents ever!

We wanted to get the kids to pose with the Disney balloons but thought they were too wild after pics and that it wouldn't happen. So we had our own photo shoot! :)

But the boys actually cooperated and posed for us! Kind of... :)

Then it was the girl's turn! 

It was a great weekend but so quick! At least we will be together again soon in Disney World!
