Hello everyone! Well, it's been eight months...yes, I said eight months, since we posted last! Here is a quick run down on all our holiday celebrations the past three weeks or so...
Justin's turned the big 30 back in November! Our friend Chad cooked Justin's b-day dinner for us! Red beans and rice, fried chicken, and sweet potatoes! We had just a few friends over to celebrate his special day! We ate, drank, played games, and I had my first experience with Rock Band...let's just say, I enjoyed watching more than playing!
Thanksgiving was next on our list...we hosted Justin's parents and grandma Frances here at our home. Justin and I cooked...almost everything all by ourselves! It was quite an accomplishment! All the usual items...turkey, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, rolls, stuffing, cranberry sauce, etc. Then celebrated with my family at their home. My mom cooked another amazing meal there...again Thanksgiving regulars, but all so yummy!
Justin and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary on December 9th. We actually were home that weekend with a sick baby, but we still were able to sneak out for a dinner together after Reagan was feeling better. :)
Christmas 2010 has been one of the best since Justin and I have been married! Our first Christmas we spent in Australia while on our honeymoon...so that will always be very special! This year, though, Reagan has really been able to enjoy the decorations, the food, the presents, and all that comes with a traditional American holiday season! :) She has learned that Santa says..."HoHoHo" and she will tell you all about it! She did very well not disturbing the tree, stockings, or presents, until appropriate times! We were very impressed with that fact! She loves all the lights inside and out! It really has been fun seeing her eyes light up with some new surroundings.
We hope that everyone, too, is doing as well as we are! It has been a wonderful year...we are looking forward to all the Lord has for us in 2011!
