Christmas Recap: Spragues

So many adventures with the Sprague family during our time in St. Louis. Here is a picture documentary of them all :)

Braggin Rights Game
Other than the Illini winning in the final minutes, it was a great tradition that continued yet again. Maybe Macklin will have enough attention to attend next year! We ended the night with some STL's famous Cecil Whittaker's deliciousness. 
Kevin did miss this game for a special reason (find here). 



Christmas Morning 
There is something so fun and special about Christmas morning at my parents. Not sure if it is because of all of my childhood memories of waiting in the hall to run out and see if Santa came. Or if it is because of how talented my parents are at gift giving and the amount of presents for our growing family. Or maybe the way the house smells with breakfast being cooked as we arrive. Or maybe just the hugs of my sweet mom and dad. No matter what it is, I look forward to walking into my parents house for Christmas morning, pretty much all year (No pressure, mom and dad. If you ever want to change things, I will survive. I promise.)!

The kids opened their stockings while we awaited the rest of the clan. Macy snuck in a morning nap, but got a little behind in her stash. We really enjoyed our morning with the Sprague family as we exchanged more gifts and spoiled each other. I love when my family opens gifts that we gave them...I get so excited because it is so enjoyable to pick out something that you know they will like. 

Big Gifts - Bike rack for Justin and a bike for Macklin!
