Christmas has officially left the building in our house, decor and all. It feels like it was all over before I could blink. I know that it will also be back again just as fast, so I'm not complaining! We were all very blessed to have the Christmas that we did, and we couldn't be more thankful. 

The kids were super excited Christmas morning. Ella is almost 3, so she is just now comprehending the whole Santa/presents thing, which is so sweet. ♥ Ayden officially doesn't believe in Santa anymore, but he was just as excited on Christmas morning as he always has been, so it's all good. He's more of a let's-just-have-a-party-for-Jesus'-birthday kind of kid now! I love it!



We took the kids shopping the day after Christmas to spend some money they got from their grandparents, and of course we ended up in Build-A-Bear. ;) We also spent most of the day in Books-A-Million. I love that my kids LOVE books. If there's one thing I will always purchase with a smile on my face, it's books.


Santa was good to Mom and Dad too! We finally got a Keurig (hallelujah) as our 'together' gift. Houston got a miter saw and I got a Shark Rotator Lift-Away Pro (yes, I am 100% over the moon about a vacuum cleaner.. it's the clean freak in me, what can I say?!)  

I'm also still a little in shock about my dear friend getting me a gift card to the Erin Condren store. All my blogger friends, you get it.. right?! AHH! I have never had a ECLP before, but I am a planner freak in general so I know I will love it! I've been browsing Etsy for a few days now looking at all of the sticker kits for the weekly layouts. Watch out world, I'm about to be one of those girls.. No shame! So to her, again, I want to say THANK YOU. You are amazing! I have to say it's one of the best, most thoughtful gifts I've ever been given.

With my house back in order and all toys put together and in their places, I can finally say Christmas is over and we are looking forward to a great 2016!

What did you get for Christmas?
