Christmas

I know that it is now almost the end of January and that I should have posted this a long time ago, but yeah... I never got around to it, so here you go.

We will start off with our Christmas decorations:


These are the little trees I had by the fireplace.


Our stocking said "Dear Santa I've been..." and you could move they candy cane/present to the correct pocket. Shaun picked them out! (Yes I do like them =) )


This is the Willow Tree Nativity set that I have wanted for a REALLY long time now and finally got! It is SO pretty!


And lastly we have our Christmas tree with our village and train (Polar Express Train...)

So as all of you know, this was our first Christmas together. It was a lot of fun. Christmas Eve we went to my grandpa's house for our yearly Christmas eve party. We had dinner and then sat around and talk. I had hide Shaun's big present at my parents house and so that brought it to me and I couldn't wait to let Shaun open it , so he got to open it up there. I bought him a Ruger 10/22. He seemed to really like it.

That night we also went to Shaun's parents house where we spent the night. It was a lot of fun. We had munchies, put together a puzzle and watched movies.

Christmas day we woke up around 9 so that we could do web cam with Byron (Shaun's brother) and his family. That was fun. The kids were really cute and showed us all of their presents. We then had breakfast, opened presents, and finished up the puzzle before we headed home.

Once we got home we opened up the presents that we had bought for each other. Shaun bought me a Cricut Expressions machine, the design studio software and the Jukebox. I am VERY excited to start using it. In addition to the gun I bought him 2 shirts from Thinkgeek.com and their Despair calendar.

Christmas night my parents come down to our house we Huge and Peanut (my little "brothers" aka their dogs) and we opened presents and then had dinner. We made breakfast foods.

I had warned my parents before coming down that they should either bring the truck or park on the street. My dad thought they would be okay, but it turns out when they went to leave that they had got stuck in the snow. Shaun helped get them out, but in the end they ended up with a flat tire from spinning them so much in the snow.

Anyhow... That was our Christmas! It was a lot of fun and I look forward to a lifetime more!

Oh I forgot.. I have some more pictures from Christmas...



Santa apparently had too much to drink... We found him like this when we got to my grandpa's house =)
