The holidays in Instagrams

Around here the holidays only recently came to an end because we had a belated Christmas with Ryan's family since his sister took her family to Vegas to see her husband's family for Christmas and New Year's.

It was a long, wonderful, crazy holiday season. Here's a recap . . .
