Last Family Gathering

With all of the holiday festivities going on and college graduations, we couldn't all schedule this get-together until after Christmas. So, on Sunday morning the kids and I hopped in the car and traveled 4 hours to my cousin, Kelly's house.

Here are some pictures of the days activities & Kelly's house (cause it's purty).

This is my cousin, Jed & his daughter Ava - cute isn't she?
Ok, if you can get passed all that cuteness....check out the lovely blue paint & the bird prints on the kitchen walls. (I may have to ask the name of the paint to use in our bedroom.)

I'm not quite done with the cuteness yet - she is adorable.

This is a painting my aunt Rita & a friend did of Kelly's boys. It's hanging in their family room.


(I may have to ask about this paint color too - it's a nice neutral without being boring.)

The dining room.

Looking into the foyer.

Aunt Debra & cousin Tori.

(Check out the wet bar behind them - complete with a wine fridge.) This is our host for the day - my cousin Kelly and Jed again.


Time out for a birthday boy - Grayson's 6 as brother Parker looks on.


Mimi & G enjoy the party.


The Christmas tree topped with peacock feathers.


We're all partied out - literally.

What a Christmas season it has been. We are so grateful & thankful for all of our friends and family. It was great seeing everyone.

We're looking forward to New Year's Day when we have friends from Indiana coming to visit. She's a fellow blogger so stay tuned.

Now, back to straightening out the house.
