Christmas 2014 + New Giveaway!

Happy Monday, friends!

The bad news is, if you didn't get an email from me this weekend you didn't win the giveaway {Congrats, Sarah Maley Farris!} But the good news is.. Because of all the interest in McKenzie's prints, she's going to give away another print this week! So at the bottom of this post is a new rafflecopter for the new print! It will run {like the last one} from this morning till Saturday at midnight. Good luck! 

{Also, McKenzie has three prints on sale - 'Be still', 'Make Time', and 'You Go Girl' - in case you wanted to check that out.}

Onto our Christmas!

This year was our first year with nine members of the family. This year I have a new sister-in-law and a new niece. I grew up spending Christmas with just my parents and two siblings, so going from five to nine feels huge. Huge, but great.

Christmas Eve we woke up super early, he opened a present and I opened a present. 

The bow was from my present and I put it on my head as a joke. Lincoln said it was "so pretty!"

We opened our funny $5 gifts, hung out at Chik-Fil-A, then stayed home the rest of the night because of all the rain. On Christmas Eve he gets to sleep in my bed and not long after we were laying down, we heard jingle bells! We rushed to the door and saw Santa! {Moms.. this is THE best way to get your child to fall asleep fast. Bribery is sometimes a good thing.} 

There was a lot of uncontrollable laughter before bed and he got to sleep in my bed. 

Then Christmas came! 

Lincoln was up at 6:15 and I made him stay in my room until 6:30 when everyone got there. Matt brought coffee and I've officially decided he's the best brother-in-law ever. I mean, EVER. 

We spent the next two hours opening presents which was nothing short of amazing. 

This year I didn't get nearly as many pictures, and I'm kind of glad. I was much more in the moment. It was a sweet morning.

He often drives without looking where he's going because that's not dangerous at all.

This was my whole day. It was a great day. Despite the few dents we've put in trees/the fence, we haven't broken anything or knocked anything down so I'd call that a win. 

And now for the giveaway!
