Christmas 2011





Just a quick recap for my memories, christmas this year was so much fun, It was not only L's first christmas but our first christmas in our new home.

We had my parents and grandparents come in town to celebrate with us and we had so much fun!

On christmas eve in the morning my mom and I took L to see Santa at our local Bass Pro Shop which he was basically indifferent about and then we came home to make christmas cookies and the most amazing chocolate cake.  That night the women went to church then to look at christmas lights, it was so rainy and yucky but we had a really good time anyway.

Stockings are hung on the mantle with care

On christmas morning we woke up and did the usual, we started out with the christmas story, opened gifts etc which took forever being there were 7 of us.  We got so many fun things and L certainly made out like a bandit.  He was basically as interested as any 7 month old would be which was expected. He was basically very clingy and a little fussy all day just a little too overstimulated with all the people, noise, and excitement.

The food!

My gram and I cooked the meal, Ham Truffle Salt mashed potatoes, honey glazed carrots, and green beans...it was deeelicious!! We had a lot of fun cooking together and watching christmas movies.

I would have to say this was one of my most favorite christmases and I cant wait for the future christmases as L gets older and realizes whats going on.

I so agree. It was one of the best Christmases in a long time. With little L, our life is making new chapters. Thanks for sharing.

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
