Warning! This post contains many pictures of my amazingly beautiful family ;)

Thank goodness "Wordless Wednesday" is really "Wordless Wednesday, But With Words" because I have a few words to share!!

I've been a little MIA from the blogging world lately. John surprised most of the family by coming home for Christmas. So we've been spending every moment that we can together.

We are fortunate enough to have a good portion of our family in the beautiful state of Colorado so we have been able to see almost everyone in our families (we still have a few back in Wisconsin). We have been able to see Parents, Siblings, Grandparents and friends! This is by far one of my favorite Christmas memories!

The kids have definitely enjoyed spending time with their cousins. The "older" (tween) girls gave Maddie a makeover. They propped her up with pillows then gave her a mani and pedi. Next came her hair, make-up and attire. 

She was on cloud 9!

And of course there was plenty of Daddy time!

My amazingly generous Sister, Brother and Mother-in-law all gave John and I the gift of time. Time alone! So we are taking full advantage of it. We packed up the car and headed towards the mountains - without the kids!!

Now, here I sit with coffee in hand, husband on one side and this on the other....

Only the sound of the wind and roaring fire.
I could definitely wake up to this every day!
