You’ve gotta get a running start when it comes to puddle jumping. 💦

First library trip of 2019. ✅📚 Our local library is the cutest thing ever.

I love seeing these Best Nine collages every year. Family milestones and one of many coordinated dress-up days with the Ultimate Hustle Babe (my amazing boss @amylynne_s) seems about right for 2018!

Cheers to 2019 and so much good that I have planned for it! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

👆🏽 So many variations of this hashtag. Sheesh!

The last week gave me so much perspective and reminded me of what I want in the new year. More of some things, less of others. In the”more” category are more day-long outings with this one. She is so spunky, mature, funny, and agreeable. We had so much fun while I was on vacation! (More shots from our annual Christmas Day photos since pregnancy. Look back a few posts to see annual comparison, if you missed it!)

Christmas 2011 to 2018

One of my all-time favorite parts of the holidays is merry mail. (Please note that I didn’t limit that to Christmas cards, because I have received a Happy Hanukkah card in the past and LOVED that I was included with the recipients!) Not only is it fun to send and receive cards, but I love seeing our family collection of cards every year. I imagine that I will eventually display them as part of our holiday decor. Not sure how yet, but that’s the plan. It will be fun to see how Presley grows each year!

Presley is Amelie’s person. We realized early on that he pretty much trained her how to act around pets, and it was awesome to see. (Yes, I said “he.” We found out years after adoption that “she” was actually male. At that point, it didn’t make sense to change his name.) The problem with him being so tolerant and trusting of her is that HE LET HER CUT HIS WHISKERS. 😱 Good God, I gasped so loudly when I noticed at least 24 hours later. (No idea when it actually happened last week!) She was so apologetic once I explained that cats need their whiskers for balance and sense of touch. “I so sowwy, Amie! I don’t do that anymowe.” 😻😭❤️ #sweetpsays #catstagram #catsofinstagram

My favorite pack of stone cold weirdos. Swipe to see the REAL gems of our Christmas Eve photos. 😂 #familyphotos #familyof3 #homeiswheretheheartis #thehappynow

Even though we decorated for Christmas early this year, it seems like the holidays happened in a flash! I’ll be happy to have the space back when we pack up the decorations and tree, but... I love holiday and winter decor so much. (Internal battle of the moment, clearly.) Swipe to the end to see Presley’s contribution. 😆

While we were out running errands yesterday, we stopped by a fire station to say hello since we saw a few guys cleaning the engine. To our surprise, Presley was invited inside the fire engine, shown the lights and siren, and given a play helmet and sling pack with goodies — just for saying hello. What a treat for her! 🚒

Grateful for the men and women who spend time away from family during the holidays to be on call for emergencies. ✨

The most amazing Christmas Eve surprise! Presley thought she heard one of the cats batting at the bells hanging from our front door, but... IT WAS SANTA CLAUS! She caught him leaving gifts under the tree. 🎄🎅🏼✨ #christmas2018 #christmaseve #christmassurprise #themagicofchristmas #letthembelittle #pressplay

MY HEART CAN BARELY TAKE THIS. 😭❤️ We’ve taken this photo on Christmas Day for five years. (Swipe to see 2014-2017!)

I nearly forgot, and we rushed to catch some sunlight at almost 4:00 PM when we got home from the movies. It was hard to choose a favorite this year, so maybe I’ll post the others later. SO MUCH YUMMY PRESLEY GOODNESS.
