2011 was a such a good year for us. We saw so many answered prayers and were grown and stretched. We started going to Red Door and found the kind of deep community we'd been looking for for so long. We added a new 4 legged addition to the family. My photography started to "click". We had fun. I'll miss 2011, but 2012 promises a whole new set of lessons to be learned, community to be deepened, and fun to be had. Here are some pictures of our Christmas. It was so restful and magical.
|The 1st Christmas tradition Matt & I have had as a family, Awaited. A creative, beautifully told play about Jesus's entrance into our world.|
|we had lots of snuggle time!|
|Matt's dad gave me Harry Potter glasses to hint at my gift of the entire Harry Potter series. Hilarious.|
|It was so fun watching our niece experience the trees and lights and general Christmas magicalness!|
|pretty pup, pretty tree.|
|Our very special Christmas desserts. YUM.|
|This was the first year we got to have Christmas day all to ourselves. It was perfect. We started by spending half the day in our pj's and wearing our bed head and making a delicious breakfast.|
|My mom & I had dinner at Nada & then went to see The Nutcracker. It was so magical. I loved every single second & will be going back every single year.|
|My grandma & niece on Christmas Eve.|
How was your Christmas? Did you celebrate the new year? Praying that you are blessed and filled with love and joy in 2012! xoxo.
