A Taste of Christmas

The month of December flew by much faster than we wanted it to here. But there was much joyous anticipation of the Christmas season, followed by proper celebration.

We set up our tree on the very first of the month, eager to decorate for the season.

We picked out a few new ornaments to adorn our tree, including a stitched house to remember the purchase of our first home, a flashy bbq to commemorate Steve’s favorite new hobby, and a wiry, red trike – Evelyn’s new favorite mode of transportation.

While decorating the tree, Evelyn scared entertained us with her dancing moves on top of a box and played with her new nativity set.

We were greeted with a snow day on the first Saturday in December (sadly, the only precipitation we’ve had all month). It was Evelyn’s first and she was thoroughly enthralled by it.

That is, until she touched it with her bare hands. 🙂

Evey didn’t get a chance to meet Santa last year so we took her to the Country Christmas in town to visit him this year. Aaaaaand this is how she felt about him.

Maybe next year.

She’d much rather be held by Gram, but who could blame her. 🙂

Evelyn and I attended a luncheon with her grandma and great-grandma (my mom and grandma) at a nice hotel downtown. We had a wonderful time dressing up and enjoying a lunch with some of our favorite ladies.

The dress Evelyn is wearing was mine when I was her age and was made by my mom. My mom brought some photos of me wearing it to share (unfortunately, I don’t have a copy on me now).

Steve and I stole a few moments one evening to drink egg nog together and decorate Christmas cookies. It was a nice at-home date.  🙂

Then there was the flu. (Which you don’t need to see photos of…..)

Christmas celebrations, up next!

We love to hear from you!
