4 Jolly Christmases {and a Partridge in a pear tree}

I decided to compile all of my Christmas pictures from all 4 of our celebrations in one post so prepare yourself for a holly jolly photo explosion...

First stop: Kentucky where we celebrated with my Mom's side of the family. This always involves lots of games, laughing and all the cousins acting like we are five years old again.
My sweet cousin browsed my Pinterest boards to find an idea for me and made me this sweet cork board! I LOVE it!
Our annual cousin stair step picture!
Second stop: Christmas morning at our home. From the beginning of our marriage we knew we wanted to set aside some time just for us on Christmas morning and I love our tradition of making a huge breakfast, opening stockings and watching Mickey's Christmas Carol as we eat.
My husband MADE me these honeycomb shelves as a surprise. SEE THE TUTORIAL HERE!!

Third stop: Christmas with my family always includes amazing stockings and gifts, Sequence, blueberry muffins and great family bonding time.
Final stop: Christmas with Drew's family, which involves an amazing Christmas dinner, games of Heads up in our PJs (get the app on your Iphone immediately!) and more presents.
I feel so blessed to have so many amazing people in my life to share the holidays with. Our last Christmas celebration is tonight then I have a surprise planned for Drew that I can't wait to share with you next week. I can't wait to catch up on all of your holiday adventures. XOXOXO

Oh my goodness! You'll need a vacation to recover from Christmas vacation. So much good stuff packed into a short amount of time!
