Christmas

Did ya miss me?!

Took a few weeks off to get well, enjoy the holidays and just reflect on my moves for 2014.

Christmas was well. We didn’t go all out for the children, each was given 3 gifts except for the baby. Lil Mama was blessed with 5 gifts, but she’s a baby still so yeah!

We decided moving forward that Christmas would be more about building traditions so Christmas Eve we made cookies

Off to Target.
