10 Days of Christmas

Christmas break was pretty perfect this year.
We headed to Indiana for 10 days.
The cats came with us.
We made the IN-->MS in about 8 hours with a few stops each way.

 We got to go to church with my family several times.
We saw TONS of family and friends.
We made tasty treats and ate our fair share of goodies.
We ate out, ate amazing home cooked meals and snacked.
We opened gifts and got lots of neat stuff.
Spent time with family and friends.
Olive had a blast with her cousins.
She was really excited to open gifts and loved her toys.
She's been a good girl
and Christmas 2014 will go down in the books as my favorite Christmas.

 Olive had lots of fun with Mimi and Papaw.
She's Papaw's girl and continues to walk around saying Papaw all day long.  He is pretty pleased that Papaw is the first name she's decided to say after mama and dada.  They are both her favorite so it was fun to get to spend so much time with them.

 My mom and I baked cookies and made candies.
Olive made messes :)

 We relaxed and had lots of fun.

 I thought Kevin was watching Olive while I was wrapping some gifts and instead she sneaked up to find the Christmas candy bowl.  She was scarfing down M&Ms before she got caught.  She's got a serious love for chocolate.
 Christmas Eve with my in-laws.

 Christmas breakfast and opening gifts did not disappoint.
Olive spent much time pulling off bows and rearranging name tags.
She got two new baby dolls and she's the sweetest little mama to them.

 Olive loved the food, family and fun of Christmas.
We had a great day together at three different family gatherings.
 Kevin's grandparents always put tinsel on their tree and Olive was fascinated by it.

 I look forward to our annual Baked Potato Bar & BBQ every Christmas dinner at my parent's house.  It's one of my favorite meals and this picture still makes me drool a bit.
 So does this copycat DQ ice cream cake.

 Olive traveled like a champion and so did the cats.
Little crying and meowing makes for a happy drive.
So does the $1.84 gas prices!!
It's hard to believe they are so low.

 Our 2nd Christmas was even better than Olive's 1st Christmas!!


  1. It all looks so fun! I love your recaps :) Did you end up getting Olive that boutique dress that you blogged about? her christmas dress is precious.

  2. Haha love that pic of Olive eating chocolate! She already knows chocolate is the way to de-stress. :) Is that gas price in Evansville? Cause we have Chuckles gas stations around here!

  3. I love the picture of Olive with her baby. There's something about little girls taking care of their babies that melts your heart! So sweet :) Looks like your Christmas was perfect! -Jess
