The Holiday Update

2 Jan

I’ve totally been slacking when it comes to updating ya’ll on my Holiday break! So I hope a quick update (filled with a photo bomb!) is ok!!

It was spent with lots of family and friends, opening lots of gifts, and making memories.

For Christmas Eve, we opened gifts with my immediate family. This included David, my Mom, my Dad, my sister, brother-in-law and 2 nephews…it took us over 2.5 hours to unwrap all of the presents we had in front of us!

I’m not going to lie, the day came with some heartache as last Christmas I had so much hope we would be celebrating this year with a little one or at least one on the way, but I realized how much I would regret being down all Christmas this year and that being sad doesn’t change anything. I surrounded myself with my loved ones and everything was better!

This past Saturday we also had David’s side Christmas, which was full of playing cards, eating food, and watching a hockey game on TV that night.

For New Years Eve we had a small farewell 2012 party at our house. It was a lot of fun and felt very refreshing to welcome in a new year!

We played catch phrase…

And watched the hockey game on TV by the fire…too bad they lost! IMG_20130101_014943And now, I hope that this is true! I’ve always been a sucker for a good horoscope!
