Well no, that's not my kitty but I did think it was a darn cute picture ;)
I haven't posted in a bit and I know Christmas is over but I just want to share with you all the Christmasy things that went on :D
In the month of November is when my Christmas shopping began. The ladies got beautiful gifts from etsy.com and the men got gifts from Bass Pro Shop all except for the hubby. His gift brought the most complication, but it all worked out at the end. I really hope he enjoys his Wacom Intuos 3 Tablet and thanks to the UPS man for helping me out ;). ps. hubby's gift didn't get in until December 24th.
I wanted to make my own Christmas wreath this year so this is how it began, with some different colored yarn.
Umm, disaster maybe? I had no idea how to decorate this wreath. All I knew was that I had buttons, yarn, felt, and the two birds I had sewed the weekend before at the ranch. And don't ask about that little tree..I thought it would be cute..but I cut it retarded, figured maybe it could be a really weird cute tree and then hung it with white thread...ehh..well, for the first time and not having any instructions I was like, okay, I'll let this one pass, I'll have to definitely plan for next years ;).
It's kind of blurry but it's a handheld video game with a sign that says super gamer. I thought it fit him!
And since the hubbs loves drums we got him this perfect ornament to match.
This was our first attempt at the Christmas tree. Now it's in a better location, more lights and the ornaments are better situated, all thanks to Edilma.
I received some beautiful Christmas cards from some very special ladies!
This came inside of Grace's Christmas card! She definitely made me smile! Thank you Grace!
Can you believe Lauren made these earrings?!!! They are absolutely beautiful! Thank you soo much Lauren!! You are so talented!
Elizabeth drew these wonderful animations for me on her Christmas card! Thank you I loved them!
Thank you guys soo much for your beautiful cards and wonderful words!!
I made some rumballs, a family tradition, and just because I got married, my husband wasn't going to let me get away with not making them this year! They are uber yummy :D
OUR FIRST CHRISTMAS
Christmas morning we were both super tired from the previous night, but yet super excited to open our presents and see what we got each other! So we went out to the living room and he had me open my presents first! He got me this GINORMOUS purse, he said it was so I can fit all of my stuff inside, my purses usually turn into a mary poppins bag, so this really was a great gift! He's so thoughtful. He got me a 53 piece baking set, a spatula, the turning table, and the lise watier concealer I have been wanting!! Then it was his turn! I got him a T-shirt, 2 flannel nice shirts, an inflatable punching bag, this workout bands you put onto a door, and...A Wacom Intuos 3 Tablet for his designing :D
After gift opening we went back to bed, then I read Luke 2, the story of Jesus birth, the meaning of Christmas. It's amazing that He took the lowest of all places to be born. Humbling himself for us.
We then celebrated Christmas at my moms. His parents and siblings went over we had a breakfast brunch filled with yummy food and lots of family love!
Our family with our great grandparents in the middle.. This was just their side :D
My second parents and siblings
After we went to go see the Christmas Carol in 3D which to our surprise wasn't in the theatre anymore!! WHAT DO YOU MEAN?! IT'S CHRISTMAS AND IT'S A CHRISTMAS MOVIE!!
Go figure! Instead we went to blockbuster and bought Up, Gran Turino, Dark Knight, and the Christmas Classics. We definitely were entertained all cuddled up!
I don't know where one of my favorite movies went..but it vanished in my own house! >_<
The day after Christmas my hubby took me to get my last Christmas gift!!
Last but not least, Emily Anne awarded me with an award! Thank you so much Emily Anne for even thinking of me! You are adorable!!
