Good Times

Oh the good times. You know in these last few days before Christmas, I’ve really tried to slow down and actually kind of try to enjoy the season. Kind of.

We had some cousins over the other day for some activities and boy time. Well the activities were sort of “mom-induced” my craft days are extremely limited you know. Even cookie and ornament decorating lasted about all of 9 minutes, but hey we’re creating memories.


We really havent’ left the house much. Here is our self-photo of the day from Wednesday. My boys look thrilled don’t they?


We stopped by my parents house the other day, the Baby was asleep for while. Here he is waking up, Gramma had to get him.


And then we headed out to see Christmas lights with friends. Of course the kids had to play beforehand. Notice which boys just congregate together.


Laughs were had. By the big people and the little people.


And these two were just smitten with the Dunbar Baby. They don’t get to see a baby often enough, I think. Chunk was just happy to be close to Ray-Ray, he loves her.


Of course once we were actually walking around I didn’t take one picture. Here is a shot I ordered politely asked Mr. Dunbar to take.


And our family photo of the night. Ha. IMG_6354

One unexpected thing did happen though. Mr. Dunbar broke my stroller. Literally, broke the handle right off. SPLIT. No more handle. I’ve been contemplating for months about buying a new stroller but couldn’t bring myself to do it since I didn’t need one.

Ah well. I guess now I do.  Do you know Mr. Dunbar’s response when I told him so. “Chunk is 10 months, he’ll be walking soon. We don’t need a stroller!” {Men.}

Anyhow, Mr. Dunbar is home now. So we’re going to get in some family time before the Chaos we call Christmas begins tomorrow.

Happy Holidays everyone. I hope you spend it with loved ones…joyfully.

Funny about the stroller. Something my husband would say as well! Boyd will be 4 in March, and I'm still milking the stroller for all it's worth.

Love the pictures, your family is beautiful and it looks like you always have so much fun together.

LOVE the last picture! :)

Merry Christmas.
