A Christmas Post

It felt like our second Christmas this year…we already got TONS of stuff for our wedding! Sheesh crazy yes??

IMG_6522 Oh, I forgot to post about our Thanksgiving in Indiana. Our batteries went dead and only got a few pictures. But as you can see, it was a pretty tasty feast.

So on to Christmas…first we went to California. Santa did pretty good this year…but you must also consider that there were like a billion people at our house…

I just HAD to get a picture with these MAGICAL Thomas Kincade paintings! Aren’t they just spectacular?!

I don’t know how I avoided making a gingerbread house all my life…but I finally got to do it. Seeing the results, however, I think it’s probably good thing.

At the airport. We are sad to leave!


We don’t know how next Christmas can possibly beat this one! But we look forward to it! Merry Christmas!!
