the rest of christmas

  Where the last Christmas post abruptly left off, we continued to have some lovely, leisurely days 
with the Parton family. Well, at least Bo and I did, because Doug had to work. 

We left for New York on Dec. 27th - and for the record, Bo was a ROCKSTAR 
and slept almost the entire way. 

Once in New York, I continued, yet again, to be negligent in taking pictures.
So, here are some Instagram pics (I may be slightly addicted to Insta).

Bonsa finally got to meet Uncle Robert & Aunt Bailey!
Here he is, enjoying his first game of "Little Bull".
Here he is with Aunt Bailey at Bannister Christmas.
At Bannister Christmas, there was also an auction of baked goods & other items...
check out this awesome auctioneer.
I'm happy to say that the Partons scored some pretty awesome items!

We also...
enjoyed delicious food...
... beautiful scenery...
... a little mischief...
... and, as always, amazing family time.
(Don't my mom & I look ridiculously similar in that picture?!)

We rang in the New Year quietly with my family... it went something like this:
"3, 2, 1 - Happy New Year!!"
"Cheers!" "Cheers!" "Cheers!"
"Okay, let's go to bed."

Great time at home - got to see quite a few of my cousins, which is always wonderful. 
Can't wait to be back again!
