merry christmas & happy new week late!

i've been avoiding this re-cap post because every single picture i took on christmas eve & christmas morning vanished from my camera. i have absolutely no idea what happened. i really don't like to think about it. nevertheless, we had a mostly magical christmas (besides having random bouts of sickness throughout the break) and our two little munchkins made it a million times more fun. because i was mad at my camera all break, we gave our new iPod touch plenty of love (follow my on instagram @jessmckinley)

  1. I don't mean to be a creepy stalker, (i'm Chase Morgan's little sister if that helps?) but my little nephew just had to have some cavities filled too, he was NOT wanting to do it and we knew it'd be torture to make him, so when we noticed it hurting him, we'd say "grandpa can fix your tooth and make it feel all better" and eventually he wanted Grandpa to fix it. He didn't even flinch during the whole procedure. (Grandpa is the dentist! by the way). Again, sorry for being a random blog reader, but hope that can help! -Bailey (Morgan) McDonald

  2. Looks like so much fun! We LOVED Les Mis too!

  3. fun! Looks like we need to get together and play games . . . and I want to steal all your recipes! Edamame hummus?! wowsas!

  4. JENNY WAS HERE???!!! I'm glad you guys got some face time!

    Looks like a wonderful holiday, but sorry about the flu. That's no bueno.

  5. I am loving the juicer! Do you have one? If so, I would love some tips!! So far most of my stuff has been experimental. One of our New Year's Resolutions is to eat more fruits and veggies so I thought this would be a good way to add some to our day.
