A Recap of Christmas in Pictures

I haven’t blogged in about a week. It wasn't intentional, but we had been staying at my parents' house and they are temporarily without internet. Here is a recap of my Christmas season:

Matt and I at an ugly Christmas sweater party:
My best friend and now roommate Charlotte and I at the ugly sweater party:
Our beautiful and creative neighbor/property-mate Paige, asked our church community to dress up as different characters in the Christmas nativity scene for our meeting before Christmas. I wasn't really too keen on the idea, but it ended up being fun, and how do you say no to this seven year old who asks you to dress up as one of the three wise men? You don't. Paige was Mary:
Me as a king bringing dark chocolate wrapped in gold foil to the baby Jesus:
Acting it out as the Bible story was being read:
The three sheep Charlotte, Emily, and Maria:
Here is the angel Galilea and shepherd Dan. This is one of the kids that makes me want to have babies one day:
Anyone who knows me well, knows that my craft skills are extremely limited. However, I am a fan of homemade gifts, so I tried my best to be as creative as I could. Here is an herb garden we planted for Matt's parents consisting of rosemary, basil, oregano, and cilantro:
Here are keychains I made for my parents:
Here is a necklace I made for my sister-in-law:
Lastly, we had some fun and enriching family time. Here is my brother Travis, Grammy, and me:
Here are some of my little cousins that are incredibly cute. They also make me think I should have babies one day:

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas as well. Now we are in Mammoth with Matt's family!


  1. looks like such a fun and happy time. we miss you guys too. and you need to get to the baby making. you will make a wonderful and beautiful mother. xoxo

  2. were you kidding when you said your craft skills were limited? i would say yes because everything was beautiful. & the mini garden gave me a great idea for my mom, she loves having fresh basil & i know she'd enjoy something like that. THANKS FOR THE IDEA.

    & the key chains & jewelery? you HAVE to be kidding. theyre gorgeous & creative! keep making them!

  3. btw, glad you had a great Christmas with your family. =]
