Christmas 2011

We had such a fun Christmas this year! It was Savannah's first and although she didn't really know what was going on it was SO fun! She was more interested in the wrapping paper then all her new presents! ;) Usually we fly home to Georgia for Christmas but both mine and Stephen's parents moved here so it was nice not to travel and have everyone close by!

Here we are Christmas Eve morning getting ready to go to
Nana's and Papa's for a day full of fun!

Savannah loves her Nana... she is a lucky girl to have two great sets of grandparents.

We always make gingerbread houses on Christmas Eve... it is such a fun tradition. One of the best parts is getting to munch on all that candy. I ate way to much sugar over the holidays.. yikes.
Collette and Kyle working hard on their house. Don't you love the pretzels they used as shutters? creative!
Aunt Kathleens and Uncle Johns masterpiece!
The boys with their finished products... not too shabby!
We also always play Bingo...and we win a couple prizes!
Christmas morning!

The new doll she got from Nana and Papa... she loves it!
This was a Christmas present for both Stephen and I. We have been wanting a nice blender and LOVE the Blendtec. I make a green smoothie every morning and Savannah will even drink it. It tastes delicious and is so healthy. I also make Savannah's baby food with the Blendtec which is much more healthy than buying it. Plus baby food is expensive... and most of it is just water. We have made milkshakes, salsa, soup... you name it... this blender can do anything. It also comes with a recipe book with tons of good ideas. We love it!
My Mom and Dad got me this wrapping paper station for my craft room. How fun is that? They know me so well!
Stephen surprised me with this amazing camera. I was in shock... I hadn't even asked for it but he knew how much I love photography and taking pictures. It is an amazing camera and I am learning so much about it!!
We had a great Christmas and were all very spoiled. Savannah has enough toys to last her a lifetime. Stephen got a tool set and a new suit. We had a lot of fun and I hope everyone else had a great Christmas.


  1. Fun! Gingerbread is the best and we bought the Canon TOS for Christmas too! We love it!

  2. I SO remember going to your parent's house last year to make gingerbread houses! What a difference a year makes. We missed you guys a lot. I hope to see you soon. You might just have to come visit us before the baby comes....I don't know if I can wait till after!! LOVE YOU, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!!
