Tia and Wajuh

After Christmas Drew and I were blessed to be a part of his sister Jenny's (Tia) wedding to Roger (Wajuh, according to Luke)!  We escaped for a quick 48 hours without the kiddos to Vermont to be a part of their very special day and wedding!

It was an amazing wedding, so special and unique and we were honored to share it with them!  These two have an adventurous spirit for life and love the outdoors and skiing.  In fact, Roger comes from a long line of well known and decorated skiers!  His family has a ski area in Vermont and it was the perfect spot for their wedding!  I don't really know how to succinctly describe their day, but here it goes in about a sentence, they were married at the top of a ski run at night in a rain storm amidst friends, family, and bonfires...they skied down to the lodge through sparklers in a wedding dress and tux and we all celebrated them soaked to the bone in ski wear and dress clothes!  Can't say I have ever attended a wedding in ski boots!  It was beautiful and just perfect for them!

Drew and I also enjoyed some time to just be us and not parents!  We stayed at a bed and breakfast and after breakfast the morning of the wedding we went  back upstairs and slept until noon, it was BLISSFUL!

Congratulations to Tia and Wajuh!

Finley (dog on left) was the ring bearer...the wedding was a little delayed starting because Finley needed to be found!

Seriously? How amazing is this picture? Especially with the dogs running behind them.

If I could choose just one word to describe Kiss-Mas (aka Christmas) at the Keller house this year it would be....wait for it...TRAINS! Holy moly, I never thought I would know so much about trains (I'm just grateful its trains right now and not dinosaurs...that is my biggest fear!-mark my words!)!  Luke now has train shirts, books, a train table, a remote control train, lego trains, train videos, don't forget all the Thomas and Friends trains, oh and I am pretty sure we watched parts of the Polar Express everyday for 3 weeks...the songs haunt me in my dreams...I'm certain I am missing something, but is a train party over here!

In all seriousness though, this was the best Christmas yet.  Drew and I were both off of work for 12 days, the weather was amazing, the kids were healthy, we ate well, slept well, and just loved on our boys.  We had so much fun and although I say it with every post, every day it just gets more and more fun with these two boys.  They bring us so much joy, laughter and love!

There were maybe 3 million pictures taken between Christmas Eve, morning and day...some of them are pretty darn cute, to me, but for the most part they are of a toddler opening everyone's I will spare you....from most of them! :)  Just know that we had a blast...Luke busted down the stairs Christmas morning and was excited to open his presents, Bo's presents and everything else in between!  When asked what Santa brought him he very sweetly tells people "presents!"

Not sure what all the excitement is about, but I'm having fun!

The best we could get this year of me and my two boys!

Love to throw!

Best and worst gift...a remote control Thomas train....Luke is obsessed (best) but also gets the train hung up on everything throughout the house and yells "Stop it Thomas!" every time he wants to stop the train or switch directions (worst!)

Future golfer!

Best we could get Christmas Eve...
