An Omaha Christmas

The weekend before Christmas Kyle, Adelyn, Hayden, Wendi, and I traveled to our sister & BIL, Stef & Geoff’s, house in Omaha. The rest of my family joined us as well, 13 in total. We had Christmas a weekend early in Omaha because my sister is 37 weeks pregnant and cannot travel home, so we went to her!

We got to Stef & Geoff’s house late Friday night. Thankfully the kiddos slept the whole way! Stefanie, even almost 9 months pregnant,  is a wonderful host and had breakfast cooking when we woke up Saturday morning!

We sat the kids on the couch and let them interact. Hayden loves to “give love” and Adelyn got her share!

We savored our Christmas lunch and with full tummies enjoyed the afternoon playing games and opening gifts!






Adelyn was more interested in the wrapping paper than the gift that was underneath it!_DSC7542

I got my sister an Erin Condren life planner, she loved it!! I got one over the summer, loved it so much, and gave a few for gifts this Christmas!_DSC7552


We had a relaxing evening, went to see a few Christmas lights, met up with Kyle’s sister who lives in the area, and enjoyed family time!IMG_0380

Sunday morning after breakfast, Adelyn was on the floor with Aunt Stef and I’m pretty sure she must have known there was another baby in her belly!IMG_0385

It was so cute how she kept her arm or hand on her tummy the whole time! IMG_0386

We went to church with Stef & Geoff and then stopped by the Botanical Gardens afterwards to get some pictures with this giant poinsettia Christmas tree!_DSC7583


I love my sisters!!!!!!!!



We ate in downtown Omaha, the Old Market area, at Blue Sushi. Adelyn enjoyed the cold drinks! Ha!_DSC7625


After lunch we packed up and hit the road. The babies didn’t sleep much on the way home, but they were SO good! They played & “chatted” almost the whole way!IMG_0389

We had a great weekend with our family celebrating this wonderful season! I sure hope everyone isn’t getting tired of all these Christmas posts, only 2 more left!
