Wade's attempt at Christmas cookies
and an eye injury.
It was a wonderful season.
I was a bad blogger and didn't take any actual photos (outside of the bottom three phone pictures) on Christmas day. Instead, I spent the day decorating cookies with my husband, watching a lot of Fringe while cuddling on the couch, cooking up a nice holiday meal, and yes, channeling my inner-Ralfie and actually putting my eye out (kid!) Except I did it with shampoo... not an Official Red Ryder Carbine-Action Two-Hundred-Shot Range Model Air Rifle.
Its not nearly as cool.
This was Wade's first Christmas off from work since we got married and I gotta say, the day felt so different. I loved having him here all day :) Thank you Jesus for coming for us and thank you for giving us extra blessings even after giving us the greatest blessing of all in giving your life for us.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas season as well!
Oh yes, and then there's this. Enjoy. I'm quite good at the "Santam Style" dance, if I do say so myself...
