We had such a lovely last Christmas as just husband and wife (before we don the new names of Daddy and Mommy). We went to our church's Christmas Eve gathering at the Schnitzer Hall-brought me to tears it was so beautiful- and then spent the rest of the evening at my parents house with our tradition of eating grilled cheese/tomato soup and watching White Christmas-my fave film ever.
The next morning, husband and I had a quiet morning and started a new tradition of making aebelskivers! We read the Christmas story and just enjoyed sitting next to one another in front of the fire. He got me an Iphone (I am back!), some amazing books AND a shopping trip to Forever 21 once the baby is out :)
PS: Babe, you rock. You are the best gift ever. You could always just wrap yourself up every year...
We then headed to my parent's house where we were super blessed by them and sister and just enjoyed eating monkey bread, coffee cake, and breakfast casserole (amazing!!!!!). My parents got the baby outfits for it to go home in-one for a boy, one for a girl!
After that, my family all hopped in our car and headed to Matt's brother's home in Albany to celebrate with his family.
It was all bountifully beautiful and we cherish that Jesus' has given us the reason for not just this season, but for everything.
