Families Rule…


…puppies drool. And howl and whine and pee and bite and slobber and cuddle. A lot. :)


My family came up yesterday and stayed the night so we could do Christmas with them. I know I didn’t get pictures of everything and I have no pictures from dinner at all – but it was tons of fun.

Spending time with my parents, sister, Mammaw, Nick, my other parents, and some friends, and playing with the new puppy just took over everything.






And I loved every minute.








We’re about to make some lunch and probably get on the road in a few hours to get home with our new puppy and get settled in.

See you from home!


*I have some sourdough starter to bring home and am very excited about it! We’ve had homemade sourdough biscuits, bread and pancakes this weekend and they’ve all been amazing.
