Peyton’s First Christmas

While it wasn’t a white Christmas we did have a fabulous time celebrating with family that traveled to be with us. Here are a few photos :

What was the highlight of your holiday? Did you have family visit and did you do any “tourist-y” things?

Big things

I didn’t mean to go radio silent. Some big things happened, we got the townhouse and we moved. My mom has been generous with her time and energy and has been here since Monday cleaning and scrubbing and mopping every inch of this townhouse. Seriously y’all, I could not have done this alone. Instead of a mish-mosh of furniture and boxes it now looks like a home. Pictures to come soon.

Thanks for all the good thoughts as we waited to hear back on this place. I think we are going to love it here 🙂
