Our Holiday Recap!

Ok so I know it's January,
but I never got to talk about our holidays hahaha
so here's my catch up!
Andrew and I went to his work party on the 22nd
and we had a blast!!
I love the people he works with so much.
They are a small company and they feel like family.
We got Mickey gloves as a gag gift cuz obviously!!
The girls now enjoy playing with them hahaha 
My sparkly dress is a LulaRoe Elegant Carly.
It also sheds so I'm like a literal unicorn now right!?
Leaving sparkle everywhere I go??

We did sugar cookie decorating at my moms house with my nephew and grandma.
The kids loved it for a whole 20 minutes before asking to go play,
it was awesome!
The girls got some super cute princess hats from  
Unkie and Chelli that made their day!

Christmas Eve was at our house and we watched How the Grinch Stole Christmas
like we do every year.
We did a block nativity with the kids that was hilarious!
They wanted to just play with them it was so funny!

We went to church on Christmas Sunday at my grandparents ward
and then opened presents at my moms house.
Once we got home, we were all so tired we went to bed super early hahaha
I wanted you to see the funny "behind the scenes" of this picture because
a) my 4" heels were sinking into the muddy ground hence my weird stance,
b) Rory was "freezing mommy!!!",
c) Jade just cheesed it up the whole time and tried to play in said mud.

We did a huge family lunch day after Christmas at Islands which is our favorite restaurant,
the sad part is that it's over an hour and a half away from our house now :(
But we enjoyed the food.
In fact, I ate my entire sandwich which I never do but I was STARVING!!

The girls were spoiled rotten this year! 
New jammies, new bedding
(for bunkbeds that are being put together tomorrow!!!!!!!),
new toys, new plush, I mean the works!
They are so loved and they had a great Christmas.
We got spoiled also!
Apparently my family doesn't think Andrew and I date enough cuz we got a bazillion 
gift cards for date nights hahahaha
NOT complaining here at all!

The girls have been loving this Jeep grandparents Mills gave them.
We put it together after Christmas just cuz we had NO room for it then
so now they've been playing outside with it since we put it together.

"What can I say except you're welcome?!" hahaha
(points if you know that reference!)
Also, ignore our obviously dirt only backyard!
Someday we'll have money to put grass back there!

New Years Eve we spent with friends
and a giant fire pit!
Couldn't have picked a better group to celebrate with!
The girls got their first ever sparklers and let's just say,
it was a HUGE hit!
And yes, that's Stacy serenading us in the background 

Day after New Years Daddy was off so we did a family date day to Moana
and then lunch at Red Robin!
(yay gift cards for Christmas hahaha)
After lunch, my parents and I went to Costco because
they had Happy Planners there for a STEAL!
$25 for 2 years worth of planner!
I had to have it!
(and my membership expired so I needed them to get in and pay for it hahaha)

(Totoro plush here, it changes colors people!!)

Thankfully now that the holidays are over,
life is getting back to normal.
We love having all of the busyness of Christmas and such
but I also like being able to breathe
and take days where I don't have to get dressed hahaha

Now onto January!! Yay!
