fourth annual christmas brunch

First, a few photos from Christmas morning...

We hosted our fourth annual Christmas brunch on Christmas Day. In a way it was more "full" than ever, what with the addition of miss Jilly, but it felt like a perfect fit in our new home. 

Cooper has a slight obsession with balloons...

Boys flying a drone in the living room.

The loft is the best when hosting other kiddos. Nathan is trying to catch something that Cooper is throwing from upstairs... 

Ry trying to set up my mom's new phone, with Mom not knowing her password.

We think we might have a puzzle half done every Christmas from now on... It was a huge hit with Grandad and I think everyone put a piece or two in. We had the whole thing finished by the time we went to bed on Christmas night :)

This is the last year that our Christmas brunch will have a new family member. Still though, it's crazy to think of how big these babies will be next year!

christmas came early this year!

Christmas came five days early in the Hurren-Kelly family this year. We were so happy to spend a special Christmas morning together opening up presents, sipping our eggnog spiked coffees, and nibbling away on some homemade monkey bread. 

Christmas with four kids under five is absolutely perfect. Hectic at times, but perfect. A few photos from our morning together:

Basketballs and firetrucks, this kiddo is a BOY in every sense of the word.

I think we have this exact same photo from last year at Christmas..."the Hurren four!"

Ivy is the best cousin. She holds Cooper's hand and leads him around the house playing games, and you can often catch her cuddled up beside Jilly or Evelyn giving little hugs. Here she is holding a sleepy Jilly's hand. My heart.

Hard to believe Christmas is only just beginning! In a few days we will be celebrating with the Kelly side :)
