Home for the Holidays

     Since we were only able to spend 9 days in New Mexico, we packed in as much family time and Christmas traditions that we could fit in.  We had a wonderful time and like always, it just goes by way too fast. 

     On the morning that we were set to leave, Gracie told us that she wasn't ready to go and that we would have to force her to leave.  It was a hard drive to the airport, but we assured her that it wouldn't be our last visit.  

     Brace yourself for picture overload, but I do have to warn you that this is only half of them. I will be posting more soon!

The kids loved playing next to the Christmas decor at Germ and Lapiz's house.

My mother set up a craft table for the kiddos and this picture cracks me up because the kids are anxiously waiting for us adults to figure out what the heck we were supposed to be making. 
It was definitely one of those 'lets just throw it together and see what we make before the kids riot' kind of moments.

The kids with more cousins. 
I asked Ethan to hold his brother for two seconds, but apparently I should've defined the word hold. 

This is my gorgeous niece, Annalicia, who is going to be 13 in a couple of weeks! 
Yup...she is already taller than me! 
Makes me unbelievably sad.

Ignore me. I have no idea what I was doing ??
Thrusting out my neck, I suppose ?!
