New Year. New Room.

After this Christmas, we started to realize that our little house was going to get quite tight with the new toy additions!  So we moved Lily in with Piper and made a play room/ office for me.  [Disclaimer:  when I say "office", I mean that the old changing table is not my desk....I can sense how jealous you are right now.]  Here is a glimpse into our new set-up:
Playroom....I wish it still looked that good!
Their first night together....they are doing GREAT!
I think she likes being with her big sis.  Sweet girl.
Sweet Dreams....

Here are the last of the Christmas I think!  I've almost caught up with winter....and it's not even May yet....yippee!!!

Winter Update Part 2: It's beginning to look alot like......Family Christmas!

 Hello again!  This is a miracle that I'm actually posting again.....and don't are our Christmas pictures!  Like we do every year, we traveled from BM to Nashville to celebrate with family and even though, we aren't "at home"- we are with family which is more important than being in our home.  When you're with family, you are at home and we are blessed to be able to spend every holiday with both families!  Here is a glimpse into our time over the Christmas holidays:
We start out every Christmas holiday at home with our own tree and opening gifts for 
our family Christmas.

Then, you throw in a Christmas program or 2!  The girls look so little here.....this is fun looking back and getting to actually appreciate the holidays.  What a blessed time for us! 
It was Lily's turn to put the star on the tree while we sang "We wish you a Merry Christmas!"
 Piper was able to participate in her Winter Gymnastics "recital" with her bffs.
Piper showing off one of her cute gifts at home.'s off to Grammie & Grandaddy's:
 Cookies, Christmas village, the beautiful tree with presents, the dollhouse, cousin Ev, aunts & uncles, B.....we always have a magical time at Grammie & Grandaddy's
 The girls' Christmas room!
 Sweet Lily didn't feel good but still had such a great attitude!
Piper putting out cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve! to the Cushing's!
For some reason, this is the only picture I have of our Christmas, but I love how it shows our growing family!  Uncle Corey joined us for his first Christmas with us and cousin Eli is here now, too.  We played a lot, opened presents, put make-up on Aunt Sandee, played outside, watched movies & loved being together.

Only 9 months until next Christmas!!!!
