December Highlights

This was by far one of the best Christmas seasons I've ever had! I think it was because I decided beforehand to chill out and not stress about things, to get shopping done ahead of time, and to really enjoy the spirit of the season. Maybe it is being pregnant, realizing this is our last Christmas together as "just us." It is so strange to think that next year there are going to be two little girls with us!

We were both super bummed that we missed out on my family's Thanksgiving week trip to Hawaii. Grrr..... stupid doctor's orders. I was sad that we weren't going to spend the holidays with any of them, so I was very excited when Mom decided to come out here for Christmas!! We even rustled up some snow for her. We had a blast and I think she really enjoyed Maine.Kindof like Nebraska....but without the children of the corn.

Without further ado.....some pictoral highlights of the season:

sunny one day......

.....snowing the next!

traumatized California cats

getting cold....but not cold enough....

pizzelles, sugar cookies, monkey bread

Building snowmen (or women), LL Bean, Wii bowling,'s what you do in the winter.

We had such a great Christmas! I hope you all had wonderful holidays and that the New Year is already treating you well. There is so much in store for us this year, and we look forward to sharing it with all of you!

  1. Sarah, what WONDERFUL photos!!!!!! They are all so great and i'm sure each have a great memory attached. I know, corny. But SO true!! I'm glad you enjoyed your last Christmas, just the two of you. I'm still unsure of all that white stuff...
