The Three Amigos Reveal!

Although not holiday themed this gender reveal party for Tania and Brady is was one fun December party! You saw on Halloween that these precious friends of ours announced that they were having triplets. Yes triplets. So of course we had to throw an over the top gender reveal party! We decided on "The Three Amigos" as our theme (as apposed to "fetus fiesta") and of course had to use pinatas to find out the genders. Have you ever made a homemade pinata? One talent I thought I would never had. Just get ready to burn yourself with hot glue a couple hundred times. But worth it.

The photos below are all thanks to the AMAZINGLY talented Paul Norman with Paul Norman Photography here in Lubbock. He does weddings and lifestyle and has an amazing portfolio, go check it out!

It's a BOY! 

And another boy! 


 ( I took this picture.. had to show Tania's face.. this was how she was with all three pinatas!)

 (Also my pic... Tania GRABBED THE BAT and started at Brady! She's ready for lots of rough housing!)

Three little muchachos! I made these cute little onesies for our hostess gift! 

All the precious hostesses! 

 Cheers to three boys and lots more fun to come! Yall are going to be amazing parents! Love yall!

A Very Berry Christmas

Oh Christmas. This Christmas has been one for the books.. surrounded by new friends and loved ones, but yet the first Christmas we are not near our family. Growing up means having a pinterest board with your mom of your Christmas list instead of going shopping all year round and "picking things out." Growing up isn't as fun. But it is fun when your husband lets you pick you your very own lovely Christmas tree! Our tree in our apartment last year was free from one of the retirement homes I worked at and let me tell ya, it's probably older than our oldest resident. Each limb would fall out at random times throughout the day. Any hoo so this year I got to pick out a tree and I chose a beautiful slim 7.5 ft "real looking" tree at Target (25% off baby!), and I LOVE it! It's the perfect size for our house! I obviously couldn't wait to decorate so we decorated the tree on the Saturday before Thanksgiving *(all you judgers out there GO AWAY) and it was magical.

1. We were in our new plaid onesies.
2. We watched White Christmas
3. We drank hot chocolate
4. It started SNOWING OUTSIDE.

Even you "it's illegal to put up your tree before Thanksgiving" people can't argue that's a perfect tree decorating day. And when we came back from Thanksgiving on December 1st it was all ready to go!

 Check out some of our holly jolly holiday decor below and let me know what you think!

Thanks Dad for making our porch wreath bow! 

Obviously the china had to be decorated for Christmas too! 

Our tree!!! Want to guess which ornaments are Chuck's and I's favorite? Answers below! 

Love wrapping my presents with these little ornaments  - it's like two presents for the price of one! 

This little anthro reindeer is a first place tie for my favorite ornament... 

The glitter deer head is the what is tied with reindeer for favorite ornament! 

The puppy with the scarf win's Chuck's heart as his favorite ornament! 

Love that I have a chimney this year for the stockings instead of hanging them off our tv stand! 

LOVE our stockings! An etsy purchase last year. Obviously Ranger had to have a matching one this year... 

Found these stocking holders at a thrift store in town - aren't they amazing??

A Christmas Wreath! 70% off at Hobby Lobby last year and I've been anxiously waiting a whole year to hang it up!

A very Merry Christmas season to you and yours!
