Christmas in Chanute

penguin PJs!

WE spent the remainder of the holiday with my family in Chanute. It had been too long since I'd seen my sisters. Always a blast to reconnect with them, in person. Emails, texts, and calls get us by, but I'd rather we see each other weekly! We usually spend hours in the bathroom trading beauty products and laughs while "getting ready"...although this year we spent alot of time in our PJs.

Mom and Dad had the house so cozy and created a variety of soul-warming foods, like chili or potato soup, ham/the works, and Daddy's beautiful from-scratch pancakes. I'll always treasure this first Christmas with a son to show off. Wilder and Max played well together; what fun they'll have when they're old enough to play with Legos and clamber up trees.


Daddy drew my name in the gift exchange. I got a Martha Stewart magazine subscription, Michael Buble CD, Old Navy gift card, and a fancy hot fudge pudding cake mix. He knows me well! I drew Megan's name and gave her an assortment of items on her list, as well as some soap I concocted in our kitchen (that may have to be a separate post)!

Martha Stewart! So many good ideas I don't know where to start!
The aunties loving on Wild
Momma & Daddy got a picture of Wilder, too!
Cousins! Good thing I caught this pic because in the other ones Max is moving his face in front of Wilder's. I think he wants to be the center of attention, all the time!
We went to the flea market/Sonic for our "Sister's Weekend" (we didn't get to do one in 2008 but thought a few hours out would suffice until our 2009 one)
Ash, Wild, and I!
