Christmas in the Ozarks

Crosbi has been enjoying her first Christmas with family in Missouri. As I write this we're soaking in a little quiet time, just the two of us. She has met so many people over the past few days and while she's been a trooper, she has been a bit overwhelmed. So has her mama. I'm finally able to take a few deep breaths, look through some pictures and get back to my blog. It only took us getting to the last day of our trip for it to feel like a vacation, but that's okay. C is loved by so many people who just couldn't wait to see her. She is one blessed little girl.

Since we arrived in Missouri last Friday afternoon, Crosbi has spent lots of time with family.

She cuddled with Grandpa Dave and loved when he got out his guitar to sing songs to her. She especially likes Jesus Loves Me.

She met her Uncle Drew for the first time. It's so crazy that my 17 year old brother is an uncle, but he's a pretty great one. I have a feeling he and Crosbi are going to be buddies.


She also met her great grandparents for the first time.

Grandma Jo couldn't believe she already weighs more than 10 pounds!

She met her cousin Emerson. These two are going to be partners in crime.

She opened lots of gifts. So many that they won't all fit in the car.


But her favorite time was spent lounging in her slippers taking nap after nap, after nap.



Christmas will never be the same!


  1. Love all the photos!!! It was hard to not wonder what next Christmas will be like with a little one while we were doing Christmasy things this year - you're right, I'm sure they'll never be the same. And we made Jeff's brother an uncle at the wee little age of 9! He is so excited as I am sure you little brother is! Safe travels!

  2. Isn't it so much fun!? I love her slippers! My favorite feature of hers has to be her lips though :) Adorable.

  3. I love the pictures of Crosbi looking up at Grandpa Dave and Uncle Drew. :) But my favorite picture has to be of her sleeping. She is so beautiful!

    I bet this Christmas set the bar really high for how great every Christmas with Crosbi will be. :) I am thinking happy happy thoughts of you and your family. :)
