For me, Christmas began last Friday afternoon! I closed my computer for the weekend and headed to Leah’s house (my oldest sister) to bake and decorate cookies with the kids before we had game night and watched Elf (our favorite Christmas movie).

Bright and early on Saturday morning my mom, niece and I jumped in the car and headed to Georgia to visit my sister (Charity) and her family for the day! I was so excited to meet baby Luke for the first time. He’s just a few weeks old, and precious as can be!

Charity looks fabulous for just giving birth a few weeks ago! There’s no doubt she loves all three of her boys!

I think baby Luke is going to get along just fine with big brother Levi!


The boys were so excited to bake and decorate Christmas cookies, and Lincoln gladly jumped in to help as we mixed up the dough!

Even though Elizabeth and I had made cookies the day before, we had just as much fun creating with Levi and Lincoln as we made Christmas memories!

I hope that your time this Christmas has been blessed with those you love!
