Where did the year go!?

Hi! I have totally been MIA this past week - we hosted christmas at our home this year [for the second year] and it just consumed so much of my time! Once the holiday was done I spent some time cleaning our house big time, did some super bargain shopping and took down some of our decorations.. Our tree is still up though! If I could I would leave it up all year! Did you do any day after shopping?? I found the $99 ornament tree from Pottery Barn for $38!! I have been watching it all season so I scored big time!
Before the year is done I want to share the family photos I took with my husband, Z, and our dogs. I initially wanted to take the photos for our holiday cards, we have been married for almost three years and have never sent picture cards so I figured it was time! 
My friend, Hannah over at Hannah Joy Photography took these - if you are in northern California I highly recommend her!! She does AMAZING family, baby, and toddler photos!

Hope everyone had a great holiday! Ill be back before the New Year :)
Lots of Love -
Alexandra, Z, Baby, Cookie, and Cola
