This year marked the first year that Ryan and I celebrated the Christmas season in the new house. Fun with family, friends, and food. Can’t get any better than that.
Ryan’s family came from Calgary and Little Rock to spend some time here and we had a blast. We took them all to the Gaylord Texan for the indoor ICE exhibit they put on every year. This year’s theme was “Merry Madagascar” and it was super cold (9 degrees) but fun to see. Here’s Uncle Ry with his two nephews Easton and Matthew.
It finally got cold enough for us to have the fire on more often. Sure glad we (he) installed those gas logs!
and notice now how all the pictures look better? That’s because I got a flash! Thanks Mom and Dad! (my internal flash broke back in January right as we were starting our house renovations)
We added some pretty nifty ornaments to our collection (not all pictured here)
I wished I had been more diligent about taking pictures this year because there was a lot I missed capturing but the memories are still there. Truly a wonderful end to the year and I’m so thankful.
