Christmas week with family!

i hope you all had a wonderful Merry Christmas with family! This year around my home, Christmas was a little different. My husband wasn't here but my sister came to visit and we had a blast going to one of her friend's home. the whole day was great, and i felt such a part of their beautiful family. though i think my favorite was when we got home we had a dance party in the living room. i mean.. why not? if you follow me on instagram (which you should, especially if you want to see my puppies more!), you've probably seen a few of the silly photos we took during the day. 

we also went up to mt. Charleston for an afternoon of snow. so here's a few photos (instagram too!) of our Christmas so far together.


below is Christmas eve and day! met a new little best friend at Christmas who loved taking photos with me. little fro-yo for dessert. puppies Christmas chew sticks, and some crazy pics while snacking all Christmas day. 

before they started shivering (they're not used to 30 degree weather) in the snow at mt. charleston. still good sports and one lady said murphy was "such a beautiful little model." which i'm hoping someday when i have kids... i get that many compliments. 

if you want to see all the craziness, follow me on Facebook and Instagram. i just wanted to share a little bit of Christmas time around the Magnuson home this year. 

most of the traditions weren't quite the same without Brandon. Although i did listen to Amy Grant while decorating the tree. feel free to share some of your favorite holiday moments! i hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
