Tis the Season!

...Tis the Season for putting everything else on the back burner and spending every single moment extra I had with the kiddos to make special memories! It has been a long, fun, roller-coaster of a year!

We did the annual drive through the Fantasy of Lights. It's kind of funny because I remember as a child it being completely delightful and watching all of the lights in awe...however, the older you get the less magical it seems! I wish I could see life through the eyes of a child again. Although those lights didn't seem as amazing as when I was a kid...the "Ohhh's" and "Ahhh's" of my sweethearts made me feel all warm and fuzzy and that was worth it!

Our annual cookie making festivities were fun...however, I cannot make a flippin' sugar cookie to save my life. Santa got some killer chocolate chip cookies instead! ;) We did end up getting some already made dough and doing a few sugar cookies that way. My awesome husband got me a stand-up mixer and it was pretty handy-dandy!

We had our first annual "Ugly Sweater Party" on Christmas Eve with my family! It was quite fun.

And here are a few pictures from our Christmas morning...

Emily got a box of Swiffer Dusters! Not really...Santa put her Ipod Touch and ITunes gift card in that silly box!

I just finished making my first photobook online through and cannot wait to see how it turns out! I chose to do a year in review type of book... I will let you know how it turns out! If you have a certain site that you prefer tell me about it! I am anxious to hear all about it! I am thinking this is going to be much more doable for me that the whole scrapbooking thing. Takes less time and effort and looks just like a scrapbook! :)

Hope each and every single one of you all had a fabulous holiday! I know we did!

Take care!
