Now, for a mini explosion of pictures from the holidays.
Christmas was spent with my family in Naperville. It was a fun day full of food and games. My big gift this year was my new camera which I have already mentioned a few times. I also got some winter boots, a new purse, pj's, Pandora charm, and more!

We traveled to Michigan next for time with my in-laws and family. We celebrated a second Christmas and a New Years Eve Wedding (Greg's brother).
|the kids got hats...|
|..and lots of books!|
We do an exchange with the adults in Greg's family. Everyone buys a $50 gift and we pick cards to determine the order. Greg and I randomly ended up with the gifts we bought this year.
|Eli enjoyed opening everyone's gift|
|Abi enjoyed reading her new books|
|Murphy enjoyed sitting next to the baby|
|by the end of the night, he was exhausted from all the excitement|
A few nights later... it was time for Todd and Jen's rehearsal dinner.
|delicious cake pops!|
|the girls all lined up|
|bride and groom to-be|
|flower girls and ring bearer|
|so appropriate for a New Years Eve wedding|
There you have it, a quick recap of what I have been up to. Looking forward to all the fun and adventure that 2013 brings!
