I want to start off by saying Merry Christmas from our family to yours! I hope it was the best one yet! I created this card using Minted and love the way it turned out! Make yours HERE.

What a whirlwind this Christmas season has been. I love the hustle and bustle of shuffling around to make it to all of our planned Christmas get-togethers. Unfortunately, Carter Paul was a little sickly for his first Christmas but he didn't let it get him down, he's such a sweet and chill baby. I kicked off the week with a team party at work! So funny!

also, EMOJI pillows are a thing!

My parents got into town the Saturday before Christmas and just spoiled the kids all week long! They took McKinlee to see Alvin and the Chipmunks - Road Chip and she called it "Apple and Chickmunts" and that makes me laugh, a couple of sleepovers and lots of ice cream! So thankful they were able to keep them! They also visted the HighRise here in NWA and she loved it - then they went to Chicfila where Santa had some of his helpers working and she wasn't too fond of that.

Christmas at Mema Shirley + Papa Jim's was up first!

Carter Paul and Lilli Faith - they are 3 months apart and their big sisters are 4 months apart so that's a fun coincidence.

Then came Christmas at GG and Papa's!

Aunt Nene and my boy!

My girl!

My parents!

Love this Christmas sweater that my Grandma Susan let me borrow!

My husband :)

4 generations!

My family!

Every time I see this picture I love it even more - just Carter Paul looking so intently at his sweet sister! I love watching their relationship blossom!

Sisters and their parents!

GG + Papa and their Great-Grands!

Y'all, that's my Grandpa. Stud.

My Grandmother has a stocking for each person in the family - she's gonna need a bigger fire place soon!

Up next, Christmas with Meme + Grandpa!

Meme + Grandpa got us our yearly ornaments!

Then Christmas with Mimi + Papa!

We wrapped her gift in a "prank box" and she was unsure...

Magic Mug - Mimi loves her coffee! I made this and Papa's beer stein on Shutterfly.

Blue-eyed baby girl!

Mimi got her a blue turtle!

Sweet, teething baby.

Surprised him with a new iPhone 6 - he still had a 4 - I don't even think he could download an app.


Merry first Christmas sweet baby boy!

Last, Bolinger family Christmas!

Mama's handsome boy!

and my best girl!

Holdin' his Pepa's hand!

Mema + Pepa'a babies!

We played such a fun game where a big ball of cellophane holds giftcards and candy and you have to unravel it with socks on your hands while the person beside you tries to roll doubles on dice. I won a Coldstone Creamery giftcard! WOO!

Here's a video! 

FOUR generations of Bolinger boys! So thankful we were able to carry on the family name!

I'm telling you busy, busy, busy! I seriously love this time of the year, I squeeze in enough family time to get me at least until Summer when everyone can visit again! I hope your Christmas was as special as ours was! We had a great first Christmas as a family of four!
