We don't get a lot of snow here in NC, so when we do, it's a party! We got just a little bit last night and the kids couldn't wait to get out in it. Eden especially seemed to love it. Check out pics below!

He's not too sure about this white stuff...

But she loves it!

Even the dogs like it, they get all rowdy and playful:

More snow than we've seen all season!

 Happy snow day!

Caranci Christmas, Part 4

We are so blessed - we have so much family to celebrate the holidays with that it takes 4 posts! This is the last in my series (since I didn't take my camera to the shindig with my parents, what was I thinking?), and is mostly just the four of us. 

A few nights before Christmas, Jason's best friend Ken came over to watch their traditional Christmas Vacation movie. This year they had matching t-shirts and a moose-shaped mug that I'm still not clear on, but it has some relation to the movie. :) I love this shot of them:

My one request for Christmas this year was to have a fire. We haven't used our fireplace since moving in almost 3 years ago, and I've been dying to! So Jason got everything together to make it happen:

We decided to let the pups go first in opening their stockings (yes, I am one of those people), and they seemed happy with new balls, toys, and teeth-cleaning treats.

Next up, the kiddos. Sorry most of the pics are of Eden, Harry is way too hard to catch being still these days!

So finally, Merry Christmas from the Caranci's!

Caranci Christmas, Part 3 (for Grammy and Grumps)

I'm slowly getting through these Christmas recap posts! Sadly, I didn't have my camera when we exchanged with my parents so I won't have a post for them. But there will be one more of our little family at home. For now, here's how it went down at G&G's house!

Happy girl, with her tiara and cookies!

Cousin Kellan:

Grammy and Grumps:

Malted balls!

Best gift of the day, a boxing bozo for Harry:

Christmas breakfast, yum:

Hanging out after the festivities:

It's a tradition for us to go to G&G's on Christmas morning and there is something so cozy about it every year. So thankful that our kiddos are able to have these memories!

A Caranci Christmas, Part 2 (for Auntie Jo, the Adamsons crew, and Poppie)

Part two brings us to Christmas eve morning, when we were able to celebrate with Jason's dad and open gifts from his sisters and their families. 

New accessories from her Auntie Jo!

Poppie was thrilled with his new handmade afghan from Jen:

As you can see, we were completely spoiled! Thank you, thank you, thank you to Joanna, Poppie, Jen, Scott, Will, Jamie, Aaron and Grace for such an abundance!
