Finally got to do what I’ve always wanted to do before Christmas- pick out and cut down our own real Christmas Tree! I was so excited, I decided to film the experience and make a little video about it! Hope you enjoy!

How is it possible that Christmas has come and gone? It always does it like this- there’s so much build up and then it passes just as quiet as a mouse!
Christmas 2013 was wonderful and I am so fortunate to have so many great friends and family to share it with! Blessed is not even the word…
.
My holiday weekend started off Saturday night with our annual PNS Christmas party with all my best girls. We are going on our 8th Christmas together and our traditions have become more and more special the older we get. With kids and husbands and jobs and states to keep us apart, we always make time for each other. I love my friends.

Couldn't ask for better girlfriends

Lindz and Sarah

Ah Heather- we miss you so!

YEARS of the best times!

Chrissy & Little

Love a PNS par-tay!

Sunday was my dad’s birthday- his 60th!- and a great birthday it was. The Knights all gathered together for the most beautiful candlelight service at New Life Church and then brunch and presents at Dad and Debi’s.

Christmas Eve was another tradition- going on 32 years for me- with my mom’s side of the family. All 50 of us ate way too much and played dirty Santa over coffee and lots of laughs. I’m so lucky to come from such a close, Christian family! With tons of cute kiddo’s to photograph!

.

this lovely child... i wish i had recorded her!

i could eat him up!

Aunt Linda and Adilaide- soooo sweet!

my favorite girls....

lots of Christmas love!

Preston is such a ham!

Hannah just got her present stolen...

.

I have to admit I was a bit lax on the photography this year… Just too many people to visit with and it ended up sitting on the table or in my purse most of the night(s). I didn’t take ONE picture at my mom’s on Christmas morning! I know- I’m pretty sad about it too!
.
Christmas night was spent with my love and his family- the lovely Spradlin’s.  Again, I am a very lucky girl… My boyfriend has the best parents EVER. I just love love them so.
.

and their dogs! (This is Duke)

Jill! Maybe the best person ever....

they are still 12 at heart...

they think i'm a food photographer...

how cute was little Broc!!!

and little Joe!!!

the best pie. Ever.

i have A LOT of hair...

this says it all!

My heart is so happy as the end of this holiday season comes to an end… I give all the credit to the wonderful people in my life, and will (hopefully) remember to count my blessings every day in 2014.
The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree:  the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.

The Holidays are upon us! Last weekend was supposed to be full of parties- literally every day- but mother nature had different plans and blanketed our state with ice and snow. Everything was canceled and I was so disappointed! However the Friday night party was rescheduled for Wednesday night and it ended up being a great time. Tricia is the best host and decorator ever and this time was also the photographer! She didn’t get many pics of her home but it was sparkling from top to bottom with ribbons and sparkling Christmas cheer. The food was also quite impressive! Here are a few pics of the night…

and Tricia- we needed another Ho- just couldn't get it turned right :)

The holidays are officially over and I’m thankfully for so many things! First, two wonderful Christmas dinners with both sides of the family (the Knights and the Broyles’s) and then a beautiful white Christmas! I haven’t even left the house since Christmas night but it’s been a blast being holed up in my warm house with good family and friends. Here’s what my iPhone captured this past week…

Overall it’s been a great week! Looking forward to the roads drying up so i can do a little after Christmas shopping, then New Years Eve, then going back to work (yes, I miss the office!) and then my ski trip begins!!! 6 of us are headed to Winter Park, Colorado on Jan 8th for some skiing, sledding, and lots of drinking in the hot tubs…! I’m a happy girl.

Christmas Part 2

I have spent every Christmas Eve I can remember with my mom’s side of the family- the Broyles’- and several I can’t remember as well! We all bring a dish (well, all my aunts bring dishes and us “kids” are responsible for the drinks) and only one present for our traditional dirty Santa exchange. It’s a wonderful time and one I hope to continue forever. I love my big happy family!
