Christmas is over, right? And a photo overload!

Woohoo! I found Internet! :)

Wow. The holidays blew past us in whirl of toys, Santa visits, family and sleepless nights. But overall, Lainey’s first Christmas was a success.


And trust me friends, this child had to be on Santa’s good list because she cleaned up!



We had a great time visiting with family but it seriously wore us out. My poor baby girl has been so overstimulated that she is still sleepy and fussy.


Ready for the photo overload? Here it goes...
GG (my stepmom) and Alaina

Uncle J, my baby brother...who will be 16 next month! Time flies.

Our little family

She was exhausted! Can you tell?

My sweet nephew, Jeremiah. He was very patiently waiting.

Jameson and Uncle B. Jameson wasn't quite as patient.



Alaina opening her first Christmas gift! This was a special moment, even though she had no clue what was going on. Nor did she care.

My family

Grandma (my mom) and Alaina.

Great Gram and Alaina.

With daddy

Can you find the baby?

Look close...Can you see her?


Daddy and I also got some great gifts. I got a Cricut. Have y’all seen this thing? It’s pretty awesome! Like I said a few posts ago…I am not crafty, but they are sure making it easy to get crafty now days. Once we get done celebrating the holidays, that’s right, we aren’t finished, I’ll make a few cute things and post them on here along with whether or not I like it!


Yesterday we embarked on a trip of bravery. We headed south to spend few days with B’s family for the holidays, with baby in tow! We managed most of the trip well, with only one meltdown. Other than that, she was a trooper and did great! I rode in the back seat with her to make things a little easier. More on that when we get home.

Also, don’t forget to enter my giveaway! Tomorrow is the last day to enter and I will announce the winner on Wednesday.


AND…I will announce another giveaway on Thursday as well! This will be a good one for those of you with or expecting little ones.

------------------------------------------------------------------Since I missed Monday…I wanted to also include a little mom-saver tidbit, but a short one this time. Today, I wanted to talk about towels. Yes, towels. I didn’t actually get much bath stuff at my showers so I bought all of the towels myself and picked the wrong ones!

I started off with the Babies R Us thin, hooded towels. Well, let me put it to you bluntly. They suck. Big time. They hold water without actually absorbing it and they do nothing to warm up my freezing little baby.
The towels we really like are the really thick hooded ones. Koala Baby Hooded Towels are a big time favorite of ours. They are a little bit pricey but not too much more and it’s well worth the extra couple of dollars.


If you’re looking for something cuter, try Sweet Emeline on Etsy. She hand embroiders the most gorgeous hooded towels for little ones! Her towels are soft, absorbent and quick drying!
Hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
