Many Christmases

... and we aren't even done yet. On Christmas Eve we spent time with our nieces and nephew. Katelin got an American girl doll!
Parker got a work bench!
And a light saber from Auntie Kendra and Uncle Jason

On Christmas day I made my first ever Christmas dinner, and I used my china and set the table!!!

Napkin rings...

I never thought I'd use the crystal taper holders... but I found an occasion!

Florentine stuffed chicken (easier than it sounds) Brown and Wild rice and broccoli!
The set table... so pretty!

Christmas Sweater

There will be more to come.... I tried to post pictures from a couple of our Christmases, but was just not in the uploading mode apparently... Oh well, you will just have to check back to see if I get them posted :)

Phull of Photos

I have a lot of photos to share lately, too many to really categorize them. So we'll just go one by one....

I LOVE being an Auntie. Love it. Its my favorite job ever. Here we see me having fun with Parker -- I was letting him take the pictures. He is so cute. Love it.

Last week I was feeling kinda crappy about it all.... And my husband surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of flowers when I got in the car on Thursday. They were so wonderful! 

I have the cutest cat ever. I know I am biased. But seriously, if these next few pictures don't turn Margaret and Jessica into cat lovers, I don't know what will. He is really adorable. I am going to stop now because I sound like a crazy cat lady.

This is our first real tree together. Its HUGE. I love it.

I know they are just of Ginger, but I thought I did a pretty good job. I have been reading about camera functions and all that, and picked up my dad's RebelXT to pratice what I had learned. Like I said, I think I did a pretty good job...... and I had a cute model ;)
