Post Coffee Lees Summit… down to the wire with this one ( 😐 ), but here’s a few things that caught my eye:

Here’s looking forward to the long (possibly romantic?) weekend!

Our Christmas vacation, including a road trip with three (!) dogs…

| Living life...

… it wasn’t exactly Griswold style, but three dogs on a thousand-mile journey can certainly have its trying moments. Piper and Cosmo Christmas Car TripPiper Christmas RoadtripThankfully, they were all fairly well-behaved – and considering how much we saved NOT paying a dog-sitter for ten days, I’d say it was worth it – Jeff might have other thoughts. 😉

Two weeks ago, we headed west to Missouri for the Christmas and New Year’s holidays with my family, and with the exception of a stomach bug that made the rounds, we managed to pack a lot into our ten-day trip.

Here’s a few highlights …
Pie Dough Cinnamon Rolls… you know it’s Christmas Eve, when my mom’s making her “famous” pie-dough cinnamon rolls.TwinsChristmas2015Also, the pitter-patter of little feet certainly added to the excitement around the house. Seriously, could they be any cuter? Probably not, which is why you’ll see A LOT of them in this little recap.

Including, our trip to the “Magic Tree” on Christmas Eve. Lee's Summit Magic Tree 3Jeff wasn’t completely convinced of the hype around a “tree with lights on it,” but two one-year-olds found it fascinating. Which lets be honest, that’s all that really matters.

I somehow managed to NOT take any photos on Christmas Day, so fast-forward a few days (after we’d all recovered from the plague) to our trip to the Kansas City Sea Life Aquarium …Twins at KC Sea Life ExhibitKC Sea Life 2And aside from watching their astonishment at everything, I ended up with approx. 1,408 photos of them looking at things for the scrapbook! You can never have too many. 🙂 Reagan at FritzsWe ended our little adventure with lunch at Fritz’s in Crown Center. If you’re not familiar with Kansas City, this little burger joint delivers your food via a toy train – real crowd pleaser with the age group we were dealing with, and maybe some adults too – not to name names.

And because I promise we socialized with adults while we were in Missouri, a few photos from one of my best friends very fun New Year’s Eve wedding!Emma's Wedding 1Emma's Wedding 2Is the back of that dress not gorgeous?

And how about that view?

Now, we’re almost ready to tackle the new year … almost.

In case you need an overload of adorable…

… spoiler alert: they are my niece and nephew, so there’s a chance I’m biased.

AandR 5Two weeks ago, Jeff and I were so lucky to get to celebrate their FIRST birthday with the entire family in Missouri. And let me tell you, they are cute and funny as ever. Not to mention they are always (I mean always) on the go … not that I couldn’t keep up or anything. 😉

Especially after getting them to indulge me in a mini photo shoot – and by photo shoot, I mean chasing them around the yard until we were all too hot to stay outside. I’m sure they’ll thank me for it later. 🙂

AandR 4 AandR 3Can we talk about their blue eyes for a second? My goodness!

AandR 6 AandR 8 AandR 10AandR 12AandR 11Seriously, the way they interact with each other is just (you guessed it) adorable. I’m already missing them like crazy and counting down the days until I get to see them again. Which, thankfully for me (hopefully for them too 🙂 ),  is not that long!

ONE, what a fun age.
