Christmas 2011

christmas day was spent with just us in the morning, then my fam for christmas lunch, 
and then an all-nighter at JB’s parents.
i love the holiday season.  but sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the busy-ness of it all.
Christmas eve dinner we opted to stay in and cuddle up with just the two of us. 
JB grilled lobster and steak, made mashed potatoes & corn dressing.
his prayer was so sweet.
they always are but you know the ones that are just extra meaningful?  i love those kind.

Christmas morning JB and Lola Surprised me! 
{with a bike}
{and a veggie garden}
he’s pretty incredible, that man i married.
and that’s when the real pictures peal off and the instagram pics take over … oops!
Hope you all had merry everything!
