Christmas Re-Cap

Thank you so much for all your wonderful ideas for what to put over the crib! I've been "researching" (shopping and looking online for ideas) and think I might have come up with something. More on that later though...

I wanted to do a post on our Christmas for posterity's sake. We were able to spend over a week with our families and that has been so fun! I've gotten a lot accomplished for the nursery like ordering the chair and registering for my showers. I think my Mom has driven me all over town!

27 weeks in front of my Mom's tree.

Grammy and Grampy (my Dad's parents)

Grandma and Papa (my Mom's parents)

Zach posing in front of Gran's tree.

Cody and I at his parent's house.

Cody's parents with his nephew, Peyton.

All of our stockings. Reese was never far from our thoughts during Christmas. I thought about her and missed her so much.

Z seeing his horse for the first time on Christmas. We heard a lot of, "More horse!" after this.

Z stole his Mom's sweetarts from her stocking and just made himself comfy with them!

Z and Cody

Z opened God's gift to all of us...Jesus. The last gift we open on Christmas is a box that has Jesus from the nativity in it.

Katie and I at my grandparent's house.

I hope everyone had just as wonderful of a Christmas as we did! I'll be cleaning the house and organizing everything this week. I love getting the house back to "normal"! :)

Found your blog through your sister-in-law's (Katie's)... Did you use to live in Conway? You and Cody look so familiar! Maybe you or Cody know my brothers? Andy Swart? Josh Swart? I can't quite place it... but I feel like I know you from year's past... :-)

So glad your Christmas was nice and I'm so loving that baby bump. Everytime I see it I just smile. Such a wonderful time.

Hi Shannon-
It sounds like you had a wonderful Christmas with plenty of family :) I'm glad to hear that!

I am de-lurking today to ask you if you could direct me to some of your posts that show what you fill your apothecary jars with? I remember seeing that you switch them out for different seasons/holidays. I look on the blog to see if you had an email I could contact you at or if you had a search function so I could just find the jars myself. Any ideas would be hugely appreciated, I just got three large beautiful jars for christmas and am not sure what to put in them!

Thanks so much for your help! (and anyone else's who is reading this!)
