Lake Lure 2016

Growing up, my grandparents and great-grandparents lived in the mountains of NC and every Christmas my family would make the trek up there to spend some time with them. After my great-grandparents passed away, my grandparents moved to SC to be closer to family and the trips, obviously, stopped.

So this year, my dad decided that he wanted to start the tradition afresh and take a few days to head back to the mountains, to end our year with some quality family time and start the new year off rejuvenated.

Even though we weren’t back at my grandparents’, we rented a lake house on Lake Lure and headed up on Christmas day with most of my siblings, my parents, and my grandparents. We had such a great time and look forward to going back next year!

Christmas 2016 Part 2

Last week, I shared the first of our Christmas celebrations and I’m back today to share the rest of our Christmases. Pretty much the whole weekend before, starting on Thursday, we had several different celebrations between my family and Cory’s. It was so much fun to get to share the magic of Christmas with our sweet girl with our families!

And I can’t forget the Christmas outfits…so much fun!

Christmas in Alabama

It’s not too late to blog about Christmas is it? I sure hope not because I’ve got a few Christmas post ready for you guys.

Christmas for our family always spans over a few weeks due to both our families being large and kind of spread out. This year was no exception but was much more fun with Baker in tow.

We started the weekend before Christmas and headed to Alabama to see Cory’s Mom.
