The best part was we took in life with our growing family. Holidays have a different feel with 2 little ones and not just in the experiencing-Christmas-through-their-eyes sort of way. It's a bit more chaotic and a little louder. Our nights often look something like one of us running around the kitchen with Ella while the other is getting dinner ready, Archer making himself heard in the background. And while on some nights that loudness drove me crazy, on others I stepped back and took it in.
Happy first week of 2016 to you!
