Christmas Pictures 2016

We didn’t get many Christmas pictures taken this year, mostly because taking a picture with a 2 year is near impossible, but we did manage to get a few! I am absolutely loving this time of year and am soaking up every bit of it with Carson. He is at such a fun age and watching it all through his eyes makes it all the more magical. We have been trying to add in more of our own Christmas traditions this year, so we have started going through an advent series. I am really excited to start incorporating that every year and teach Carson the true meaning of Christmas. ┬áThis time of year is just simply the best, SO SO thankful and blessed! Love this little family of mine!

Christmas Day 2015

This Christmas, was definitely one for the books. It was filled with so much laughter, family, and fun memories.  I was telling jordan how different this Christmas was compared to last year. Carson was only a few weeks old last year, so everything was such a blur. This Christmas he was crawling around everywhere and getting into everything. He had a blast and it was so fun seeing Christmas through his eyes!

We woke up really early on Christmas morning, so Jordan made a fire, brewed some coffee, and then we just sat on the couch talking for awhile until Carson woke up. Once Carson was awake, we read the “she reads truth” advent and then exchanged gifts. Jordan and I didn’t buy Carson a single gift this year for Christmas, mostly because I knew his grandparents would spoil him rotten (and they did) and because most of the time he would rather play with a box than a $20 light up toy. We are probably going have to use our spare bedroom as a playroom now because of all the toys we have to store!


After we did our own Christmas at home, we headed over to my mom’s and carson had a great surprise waiting for him there.

 He was gifted a V-tech train set and a ride-along car! It took my dad two hours to put that train set together and it took Carson only 2 minutes to break it apart. So he is probably still a little young for it, but I think in a few months we will pull it back out and give it another try. Carson really enjoyed watching the train move though!

 You know he is excited when he makes the scrunchy face.


Unfortunately, I didn’t take a whole lot of other pics, but we did take carson for a ride in his new car with the Duncan fam and he loved it!

Sentence per Picture

There is so much going on in the Duncan household and I have been really awful at capturing all these special memories we have been making lately. We have family in town, so we have been spending lots of quality time with them, which has been really nice. Thankfully, I captured a few pics and wanted to share them on here. So this post is short, sweet, and a whole bunch of random.

Mimi is in town and Carson would not let her hold him for the first couple of days (he has been so clingy), but finally let her hold him on Sunday!

My sister had her annual Christmas concert at Glendale glitters. We have gone to this for years now and it has become a fun tradition for us. Last year, Carson was only a week old and we still went!

Carson has learned the “More” sign recently and I’m pretty sure I have never been more proud. Its been a work in progress and something we have been teaching him since he was 6 months old. I was convinced he would still be grunting at 40 whenever he wanted “more” of something.

Jordan sent me this picture the other day while I was at work and it made me so happy. Note that he is still doing the “more” sign. love it!

We had ugly sweater day at work yesterday, so Jordan snapped this pic for me before I left. He got up at 5:30 am (on his week off from work) to make me coffee and see me off to work. He’s the best.

Last week, we went to Kierland with the Duncan clan (another yearly tradition). Always such a fun time and something we look forward to every year! Big thanks to my sweet sis-in-law for taking our picture!
