Nora and Lipstick

This girl had an obsession with getting into my makeup to get my lipstick for the longest time! Doesn't she look fabulous?

We wrapped the night up back at home. We took some pictures, then watched a movie together...I fell asleep though.

Christmas Eve 2015

On Christmas Eve this year, we stayed home. I cooked a nice turkey dinner and my parents came over to share it with us. We shared some music together, watched a Christmas video, then the kids opened their new Christmas pajamas.
