Christmas in Wisconsin!

When I told a friend that I was going to be spending Christmas in Wisconsin, he replied with, "That's the most adorable thing I've heard!" And how true that was! I spent Christmas in Oshkosh, one of the most charming little cities I've ever seen, with my grandparents, Dannon, my mom, her 7 brothers and sisters, and more cousins than I can count. It was a blast!

Christmas Eve we had a little mini Christmas with some gifts {I got this beautiful fox necklace from my mom, and some awesome books from my sister, including The Little Prince Pop-Up book!}. Then on Christmas day all the family came. We put out tables full of food and drinks and pretty much just ate all day long.
 There were also games and lots of picture-taking!

It was a nut house! sometimes you couldn't hear the person you were talking to because there were SO many people stuffed into my grandparent's home. But it was an absolute blast!

The rest of the weekend we spent hanging out,
{me and my mom}

{don't you LOVE that chair and curtains?!}

visiting a Nutcracker Gallery,
and playing in the snow!

First it was all about catching snowflakes with our tongues and making snow angels,
but then Dannon got serious.
He built an awesome snowman, and even a snowfrog!

It was a great little holiday and perfectly worth all of our traveling horrors.


  1. So glad you had fun in Oshkosh! I grew up in Appleton so I know the area well. Your brings reminded me of home... loved them!

  2. Officially in love with that chair and curtains, and your gorgeous green coat!

  3. look like a lot of fun! I can't wait to go to the snow in Feb. I have never been in snow :(

  4. Now you're glad we took that photo with the nutcrackers, aren't you?

  5. I had such a good time with you and Dannon in Oshkosh. Wish it could have been longer, but just grateful we were able to get together this Christmas. Love ya.

  6. these are great. i feel totally tortured to think we were in the same state. sigh. (because all of my comments on your blog are bemoaning our lack of proximity. maybe that will be a resolution for me: say something else on kim's blog!)
