Ok, I found my camera..... in Jonathan's coat pocket.... in the LAUNDRY! Maybe if I had done laundry sooner I would've found it sooner! Luckily my mom was around a lot with her camera and took lots of pictures for me! So scroll down and check out what we did for the holidays!

Christmas Time

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! We spent Christmas Eve at our OWN house, for the first time since we've been married..... oh... and had a house! :o) We had my sister and some friends over for dinner and games, they have a son close to Blake's age, so they had a lot of fun playing together, it was a fun evening! Christmas Day was spent at our house also, my parents, grandma, and sister came up to spend it with us. Jonathan had to work until 1 pm, so once he got home we had lunch (actually breakfast for lunch), put Blake and Jonathan down for naps and played some games. Finally around 4 we got around to opening gifts. It's probably the longest I have ever waited to open presents, it was a little strange not doing it first thing in the morning, but we had a great time!

Every year growing up we had waffles and eggs for breakfast, so despite being later in the day, we still HAD to have them!

My grandpa made that rocking horse for me when I was close to Blake's age, so my dad got it out of the attic and cleaned it up a little for Blake.... he loves it!

It was a John Deere/Elmo Christmas for Blake... here's his lawnmower

His tractor books...

And Elmo chair.... his favorite!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Winter Wonderland

I LOVE SNOW! So I was very excited to have a huge snow storm this Christmas.... we spent a lot of time at my parents house since Jonathan was working a lot, and they got over a foot of snow! It was really the first time Blake was old enough to "play" in the snow, we had lots of fun!

He would've stayed outside ALL day if I let him

Our trash bag sled....

Just another reason we love auntie SOOO much!

OK, I pulled her too, but nobody took the picture for proof!
