Holiday Cheer

Weeks ago we decorated our house and started getting ready for the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.  Delainey was a big help putting the tree up, hanging wreaths, and spreading some holiday cheer!  She is like her Mommy... loving the christmas carols and singing right along!

A week later Grandpa Lonnie invited us to a live nativity at a church nearby in Webster. The event was very neat and well done. We saw donkeys, sheep, and even camels!  We were glad we made the trip!

This past weekend was a busy one full of last minute preparations, which I'm sure most people can relate to.  It is easy to get wrapped up in the lists and expectations of ourselves of what we "should" get done. At some point we need to prioritize and go on.  We did that and decided to make cut-out cookies!  That memory will last a lifetime.

While we were baking, Daddy went fishing!  He brought home a table full and later treated us to some delicious fish tacos. Delainey ate the tacos like candy, so I guess Daddy has his work cut out for him this winter.

The weekend ended with the beginning of our Christmas celebrations. We had Christmas with the clan up at Grandpa Lonnie's and boy did we have fun! Delainey fell asleep on the way home and slept until Monday morning.

The excitement in Delainey is contagious, and we can't wait for the days up ahead.  We had our family Christmas tonight and had another great evening of excitement, joy, and smiles! Now we have all week to play with new things and get ready for our roadtrip to the cities for our weekend holiday! 

 Safe travels and Merry Christmas to all!
