Lots to celebrate upon our arrival in Kansas for Christmas...
~A successful (and very last minute) 23 hour drive after a cancelled flight. We received notification around 9:30am, made a snap decision to rent a car, and were on the road shortly after noon. Lily was a trooper - she played lots of games, watched a few movies on my phone and was all around a very good girl. William was happy as always...as long as one of us sat next to him holding his hand. We have nicknamed him 'high maintenance'. :)
~An entire week to spend with family and friends. Ryan hadn't been home in a year and was extra excited!
~Lots of family and friends meeting William for the first time. We were thrilled to show off our newest addition.
~Spending one evening with just my siblings and parents - I can't tell you the last time that happened! It's been years since our immediately family was all together without an extra crowd.
|we missed our Auntie M and were so happy to see her!|

|can you tell how exhausted Ryan is after being awake for 48 hours?|
|meeting Uncle Matt and Aunt Kristin for the first time!|

|it's been years since the three of us hung out without a huge crowd|
thankful for such a fun evening!
(ignore my no-makeup, bags under my eyes after being awake for two days straight)
A fun night to kick off a very Merry Christmas week in Kansas!
