Just some moments…one last look at the Christmas that was 2015

I must face the fact that we are fully engaged in 2016….

After all….tomorrow will be the one week mark for ending 2015.

So maybe it’s time to recap what is now in the books for our year end stuff…

Come along and let’s do a random photo journal of the highlights or at least the ones that jump out at me today so I can actually get a post up for Wednesday <3

So….Christmas….

IMG_8613

included but was not limited to ….

Selfies with Rocco on Christmas day…IMG_8496we couldn’t believe how warm it was…

IMG_8500 (1)

and that the rest of them wanted to see Star Wars instead of hang with us.

Whatever.

Then there was going to church with …..

IMG_8585

and….

IMG_8565

which has a story because his Bible actually has a lamb’s face…

IMG_8566

which I am certain anyone local knows who of his “auntie’s” gave him THAT…and is just the cutest thing ever to see him tote that thing through the halls of the church.

Papi said Emmett held up a long line of traffic trying to exit the preschool area as he thumbed through the pages to find the picture of baby Jesus…I wasn’t there which was probably good cause I may have just died of overdosed preciousness….

Speaking of….

Joel started acting like he knows me…which just did me in…completely.

Then there is this pic…which I would love under any circumstances…

IMG_8541

however, the photographer was Graham…

who suggested it would be a good idea for Lola to have her picture taken with her babies….

seriously….he said that…called them my “babies”

Four years old and he totally gets me.

Like he probably knows what pictures like this do to my heart…

and this…

IMG_8520

and why we all think Texas is just too far away for…

IMG_8507

Then there was that day we tried to act like we might understand modern art…

IMG_8606

and decided we would rather BE modern art…

IMG_8657

There was the trip to….

IMG_8645

where I learned it is not spelled like our name…at all…because mentally it has always been Reiman..but…no…it’s the RYMAN…

IMG_8738

and I remembered that I actually do have love for bluegrass that runs deep

IMG_8729

because….the banjo…the mandolin…the fiddles…the instrument that was bigger than the girl playing it and has a weird name.

I also¬†learned there is a “Batman” building in Nashville….which…

IMG_8637

yeah…I can see why.

We looked up a favorite Decatur transplant…

IMG_8700

Ate some serious barbecue…

IMG_8718

And there you have it…

IMG_8685

a whirlwind grand finale of pictures to wrap it up.
