Cmas, anniversaries and then some

by - December 31, 2014

As we wrap up 2014, I just want to take a moment to look back at this past week which has been so jam-packed with celebration.  I am feeling quite overwhelmed and overtired and look forward to some downtime in the future, but not in the near future as we start our Christmas/New Year's festivities with my family tonight. 
Bring on the fireworks, the bonfires, the fancy drinks, the treats, the silly games and all that love.

First up was the awesome beauty that Mother Nature threw our way.  I have never seen frost like this. I also don't recall a time of being covered with fog for what seemed like weeks.

We celebrated Dan's birthday with homemade KFC.  Yum!

Then it was time for Christmas with Dan's family.

Followed by our anniversary, which was a fun one because it was our 10th.  We didn't do anything special for the day, just chilled/recovered with the kids.  The highlight for me was opening our Time Capsule/Wedding Day Predictions box and seeing what everyone wrote for us.  There were some good ones in there, and most of them pointed to Dan not having hair and me owning an art studio.  I'm going to do something similar and seal it up for our 20 year.

Happy New Year!
