Wow, what a year it’s been! And what a wonderful Christmas we had. I decided to do one post to catch up on all the Christmas photos I have, instead of trying to do a bunch of posts.
On the 17th, we took Joelle and some of her friends to Christmas Town! It ended up absolutely pouring, and getting super cold. We were looking forward to riding rides and taking lots of pictures, but those plans faded pretty quickly, haha! I got a few photos, but then had to put the camera away so it didn’t get too soaking wet. It was still a fun time, and all the lights are just as magical in the rain!
Craftsman sent us this adorable ornament in the mail! It’s too cute ❤️
We spent the weekend before Christmas in Sweet Springs, celebrating with Chris’s family! Colten was very excited about his many gifts 😄
I didn’t get a post up about my Christmas decorations this year, which is kind of sad because there is so much that I love! Hopefully next year I’ll be on the ball and take more photos around the house. One of my favorite parts of the house is this massive garland I hung between the main living area and the dining room! I dried some orange slices and hung them from the garland, and they make me so happy ❤️
I hung all the Christmas cards we received on this door in the dining room, and it makes me smile every time I see them!
I found a sign just like this one at Hobby Lobby, but it was landscape orientation, and I wanted it to be portrait to fit in this space! So I designed it in Photoshop, and sent it it to Kate who cut out a stencil on her Cricut. Then Chris spray painted the stencil on a board I had painted white, and voila!
We spent Christmas Eve with my side of the family – Penny’s first Christmas! She really loved her name puzzle from Uncle Chris and Aunt Emily!
I got Joelle a moon lamp, and of course we had to take some fun photos with it 😄
On Christmas Day, Chris and I opened our presents to each other, and then went to my parents to open the gifts from them with Joelle. Now that I’ve moved out, we didn’t want Joelle to be alone on Christmas! I got Chris a new board game, Trekking the National Parks, and it was a HUGE hit! We played it most of the day, and it was so fun! Joelle got me this custom phone case from Pet Canva, and I ADORE it!!
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, and have a happy New Year!!
