Connor David

My mom and I took a little road trip to North Carolina to visit my cousin who just had a new baby boy. It was such a great time! Connor is absolutely perfect.  Such a cute little baby who is so laid back.  He was so easy for our little session!!  I had the best time cuddling with him late at night but I also throughly enjoyed taking his newborn pictures!!

{a very merry time}

A very merry time has been had by all!  This might have been the most relaxing few days leading up to Christmas ever!  I love Christmas so much for a million reasons.  I mean who doesn't love Christmas?!?! It's awesome! You get yummy food, time with family, great gifts seriously whats not to love!  Its a time of celebration of Christ's birth. I mean how cool is it that so many people have birthday parties for Christ!  People all over the world celebrate Christ's birth. Thats pretty awesome.  

This was on Christmas Eve Eve or Christmas Adam. Whichever.  I had a slice of chocolate cake and milk for dessert and with the tree behind it was just a pretty sight. 

We basically laid around.....

...and baked on Christmas Eve!  

It was heavenly! The whole family. All 5 of us.  We all just spent time together!! This angel comes out every year at Christmas time but I had really never taken the time to notice her.  And this year she became one of my most favorite Christmas decorations in our house!  And since I am totally obsessed with Christmas Tree bokeh I had to take her picture with the tree behind her. 

Christmas Eve Candle Light Service could possibly be my favorite Christmas tradition!  I just love it.  Something about everybody in a packed sanctuary holding up a lit candle. It gets to me. 
Really I love it! 

My sweet mama and daddy! 

Cousin Loving

My cutie pie sissy. Isn't she adorable?! I sure think so!

We have the most delicious brunch at my Nana's house every year.  This is my moms side of the family.  I seriously look forward to this brunch all year long.  My mouth is watering thinking about it! 

Next stop Dothan!  Just under a 2 hour drive to my dad's side of the family! 

Happy Birthday Jesus!

beautiful chaos

This week kicked my butt!  This was our last week of school before Christmas break.  I really was not sure I was going to make it through!  I'm telling ya exams are hard and tiring and just a royal pain in my side.  On top of exams, I have had a whole ton of orders for Christmas that I needed to get done.  I found myself extremely stressed and tired.  I am happy to announce to y'all that I made it through the week alive. WOOHOO!  I mean thats a real accomplishment folks! 

Y'all we serve an incredible God.  He reveals himself to me in new ways all the time.  I was in the kitchen the other night baking and my mom said "girls come quick!".  My sisters and I found her on the front porch with this beautiful sunset directly in front of her. 

It was an INCREDIBLE sunset!  I mean it was breathtaking.  My pics just do not do it justice.  It was awesome.  I just am so amazed by our God.  In the middle of a very hectic, busy, and chaotic week He says slow down and see my glory.  Slow down just for one second and see my beauty and find rest in me.  I love it.
