Christmas was very fun this year - did it seem to just fly by for anyone else? I was more ready than ever, but it still seemed to just whoosh by. The week after Christmas is always weird to me - you don't want to work, you shouldn't play, it's just kind of uhh *shrugging shoulders*. I am happy it is kind of slower though, that feels nice.
For Christmas we were spoiled (as per usual). We got our favorite cereals, a really neat picture of our last name - like the ones shown here...but taken by our Shawn, IKEA giftcard, Joann's giftcard, TJMAXX giftcard, Amazon and Itunes giftcards, sushi giftcard, a new sewing machine, cute socks, new clothes, Robin Hood (the one with the foxes), cute little magnet bottles, and my list could go on. We just had a great time. It was fun to get, even more fun to give. Oh yeah, Thomas also made me an incredible rolling island for my kitchen. It is amazing. He's learned how to weld, so there is no stopping us now.
|Here she is. If you want one (and I know you do, just go here: www.kingbirddesign.com) (yes, i just did a plug for our business, don't judge)|
|Welded corners and casters! I can roll her anywhere.|
I've had two weddings this month, which is unusual for December, but they were fun. Here are some pictures.
|I'm not usually a fan of the Christmas colors, but the roses and hydrangeas made me a happy camper.|
|These are the same bouquets, just lying on the sidewalk.|
|Do you like the feathers? Actually, I don't care if you do or not, they are so awesome.|
|The groom's boutonniere. Star of Bethlehem (the weird green thing), is probably one of my new favorites. My cute friend from www.rubybloomflowers.com helped me with these. She's the best, I wish we worked together all the time.|
Anyway, this season has been great. I love all the hustle and bustle of December, the parties, the food, the presents, the sparkle. And more importantly, I also love the service, the family, the friends, and my Savior, Jesus Christ. I hope to take a little bit of what I felt this December with me throughout the year.
Tom and I sent out a digital card for Christmas this year and I'm afraid we missed some people, so I'm posting it here too (hope you can see it). We hope you had a happy Christmas too!
