This post will wrap up our Christmas adventures. Finally! I want to document Christmas, but it overwhelms me every year.
After our morning with Will's family, we hopped in the car and headed to Alex City. Thankfully, both of the kiddos napped the whole way!
We had already done both of our big family Christmases as a Thanksgiving/ Christmas duo, so all we had left was Christmas with my parents, brother and sister, and all of their kids. We had a late lunch and spent time opening presents together.
The ladies make up a huge part of my family! It is much needed after our first Christmas with all boys and sports talk.
We spent the rest of the evening relaxing with my family. My mom is so much help with the kiddos, so I felt like we got to sit back and take it easy.
I am so grateful for our families and how much they love us. Seeing them love my children has been such a blessing to me!

I forgot to share our gifts to one another on my last post. Hudson received a kitchen, play food, pots and pans, a book, and a stocking full of little treats. Clara received a stocking and a book, but I have a feeling that she will enjoy the kitchen one day too! Will got me a keurig, Starbucks refills, and the solofill cup for refilling with my own coffee. Since, we only technically do stockings, he put the solofill cup in my stocking. I gave Will a book, jeans, a little bottle of whiskey for the occasional nightcaps, a hymnal, and a cool army water bottle I found at the thrift store. We both didn't stick to our stocking budget this year, but we had so much fun!
We woke up Christmas morning and headed straight back to Will's parents for breakfast and gifts.
Someone took the annual family picture...just not sure where it is!
