Christmas is a Wrap for 2011
Oh heyyy!!! Remember me?! I know, I know ... I've totally been negligent of my blog for the past couple weeks, but in my defense I've been spending some real quality time with my family and extended family. But now, I'm back, I'm totally back! And I've missed you, though I've still been following all my fav blogs throughout the holidays.
And by the way, I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, I know we did. We were blessed to have most of our family together for a Hoosier holiday at the farm, except for my brother and his family as they have a two week old little one! Thank goodness for Skype so I was able to meet my new adorable nephew Rowan William!
I can't believe it's Dec. 29 and Christmas is officially a wrap. I suppose it's time to start taking down my decorations, but that would be admitting that the holiday has ended and I just love this time of year!
This year was extra special too, because it was the first Christmas that RayRay was into the gift unwrapping, meeting Santa and partaking in all the yummy holiday food and treats. We had a wonderful time enjoying the magic of the Christmas season with RayRay this year. From Christmas parties to Christmas Eve service to family dinners and of course all the lovely and generous gifts from our family, we were very blessed this holiday! I thought I'd take a minute and share a few photos (out of about a thousand that I took) of our very merry and bright family Christmas! Hope ya'll had a great one!!
