Can you believe it, 2 posts in 2 days!! That means we're getting closer to a Brazil post that's gonna take me forever...don't worry, I want it done as bad as you do :)
Okay, okay, so our Christmas season this year was pretty casual and I liked it that way. I didn't drag every decoration box out of the attic (to Ryan's delight), we only did stockings for each other instead of gifts, and actually got to spend it in our home. Most of this was because of our upcoming trip. Anyway, I went with a green and silver theme this year.Two observations you may notice about the tree, 1st: a certain small cat underneath it who decided that would be his escape from Baby and 2nd: no ornaments on the bottom which I'm sure you can figure out why :)
We did attend the ward party and my work Christmas party which is an occasion to dress up and enjoy good food with friends. Can't beat that right?
I had to work Christmas Eve night but that was okay cuz then I went home and got Ryan up, we did our Christmas morning together, enjoyed breakfast, then went back to bed. I LOVE Christmas morning ambiance!
Gifts from our wonderful families!
Santa comes to our babies too!
Post present bliss: toys shredded, chewing on bones on new dog beds
Thanks to everyone who sent Christmas cards, it made my day each time I opened one and placed it on our dining room door. Despite the challenging year we had we continue to feel blessed to have such caring friends and family, good health, a job, a warm home, each other, and more than anything the Gospel. Hope you all had a great holiday!
