wish you well.











What a week it's been. Full of chaos, but the good kind.

- I turned 27 years old and had a really splendid birthday.
- Successfully finished shopping and wrapping presents at the last minute.
- Celebrated Christmas Eve and Christmas day with both of our families.
- Hugged on every single one of our 14 nieces and nephews.
- Survived family photos at 7 months pregnant.
- Loved being with my huge family, who was all together for the first time in 5 years!
(The last photo is all 9 of us kids, youngest to oldest.)

Best time of year. I'm not letting it go quite yet.

  6. Just like on Men in Black, right Clint?

    I hope I'm not the only one who thinks that.

    Great pictures, Angela. Every time I see your felt ball garland, I get majorly envious.

    4. Eating just a sample of my toffee is way better than getting sick from eating too much. Consider yourself lucky. :)

  20. Did you use your new 1.4 lens:-) How come I am still surprised that you come from that many kids..I'm pretty sure you told me. You are such a middle child..that is not surprising.

  21. I like my big family (although I am certain I couldn't handle being a mom to that many!)
    I like these photos (are those cute little Christmas trees from West Elm? I saw some similar there)
    I like that you are 7 months! (I can hardly believe it!)
