I have been home from Texas for 25 days now and I have been lovin' every minute of it!! I have a few more days at home until I fly back to Texas for the LAST time!!! How did that happen?!?
My christmas was fantastic, I just love the whole season!! My mom and I spent the ENTIRE day yesterday taking everything christmas down:( Now our house feels so empty...kinda sad! But there's always next year!!! And I spent New Years in Waterton with some of my favorite people in the world! So no complaints there!!
But in the meantime I have spent a lot of time at home with my fam and I have even managed to get in some quality time with friends I haven't seen in months!!
I love listening to these three collaborate and make beautiful music together!! This particular picture was taken while they were playing Enchanted by T-Swift!! They're pretty good!!
It's been 29 degrees in Texas pretty much daily...but I love this wintery snow globe we live in!! Maybe I'll feel differently next year when I don't get to escape back to sunny Texas after a month of Canadian winter! But for now...I just LOVE it!!
Heading out to get a christmas tree!!
We found the most beautiful one!!
Sam strikin' a pose
Jules decorating the tree!!
I've taken this fat dog on a few walks...she really needs them!! She is soo fat!! She was looking so good this summer, but she really let the christmas holiday garbage get to her this year (Literally! She ate an entire gingerbread house that had been thrown out!!)
Mid walk photoshoot
I hung out with this little man a lot:) He's probably the funniest person I know so why wouldn't I??
We made gingerbread houses!!
(Ours was better)
I played a lot of Candy Land...it's only fair that we have our turn of playing this game with Sam because I know we made our mom play her fair share of candy land with us when we were little!!
We lost everytime :(
And we made and decorated sugar cookies!!
I don't even like sugar cookies! But they are fun to decorate!!
Then christmas eve came along and we ate yummy food!!
Max is just so smily in this pic! I like it:)
Max was playing one night and I loved the sound of the chords so I just jumped right in with my own little duet part...we have quite the little arrangement coming along now!! When it's done I'll try to record it and put it up here!
My mom spent all christmas eve getting everything ready and preparing a seafood feast!! Then we had a family from our ward over for dinner on christmas day so she spent all christmas day afternoon cooking a huge turkey dinner!! Love ya!!
Shaina eats, sleeps, and breathes the Boston Celtics!! So her day was made when she got some celtics apparel for christmas!!
How cute is this picture!? His one big request for christmas this year was a jack in the box...?? So random!! I love this perfect surprised look when it popped out at him!
Haven't played this game yet...but it's supposed to be fun!
Dallin in his new suit coat and PJ's...pretty spiffy!
My mom and dad both got pens in their stockings for christmas!! Don't get tooo excited!! haha
There were two little ornament type things hanging on the tree for Julie and I! And you could unscrew it and open them up and inside was a little slip of paper rolled up, that read....
YAAAAY!!! Can't wait!!!!
After all the christmas morning excitement Harley and I took a nap :)
Heading to church with the whole clan on Boxing Day!!
It's been an awesome few weeks...and I never want it to end!! But at the same time I'm eager to get back to it...so that I can be DONE!!! And home for GOOD!!!
