After a wonderful Christmas at my parents’ house we all headed down to Gulf Shores to celebrate with my dad’s side of the family.
Gulf Shores in December. I love the beach in the summer, but it’s still beautiful even in the winter. And I especially love how free of people it is during the colder months. It’s lovely just to sit and bask in the sound of the ocean without hundreds of people surrounding you. 🙂
My sister, Holly, and I with her daughter, Makenzie (my little lookalike!). Makenzie started cheesing for the camera so Holly and I attempted to mimic her moves resulting in this ridiculous photo to the right. 😉
Things to notice in these photos: (1) the height difference between my sister, Holly, and I. (2) Holly trying to pull me closer to her which makes it look like she is attempting the Heimlich maneuver on me. (3) the adorableness of my niece. 🙂
As we were walking out the door to drive home, Makenzie asked for just one more picture with me and Uncle Christopher (anything to delay her favorite Uncle Christopher from leaving). She is such a cutie. 🙂
