Holiday Wrap-Up

Kyle and I had a wonderful 1st Christmas together in our new home. We got up early and skyped with my family, it's always fun watching Kylie and Grayson open presents. We so appreciate the gifts they sent us as well. We send them Christmas jammies every year so I love seeing them in their cute jammies.

I made breakfast and we watched "A Christmas Story" (to me that movie never gets old). We helped Emma and Fishy open their gifts, they each got a new collar and seemed very happy. Emma even got taken on a walk and she was such a happy girl. Our neighborhood is awesome, everyone is really nice.

I was able to make dinner even with all the limited supplies we had. We had honeybaked ham, sauteed green beans, mashed potatoes/gravy and rolls:

We didn't want to eat on paper plates so we got awesome $1 plates from Walmart, haha.  After we ate we skyped with Kyle's family and got to see his brothers new dog, Lana. It was nice to see both our families today.

Over the weekend we did some shopping for house and picked up some items that we have been wanting:

Entryway Bench. We got cloth bins to go in those cubby hole. It is awesome for us to sit and put our shoes on and also store our shoes.

A new Christmas Tree!!!! We got an awesome deal thanks to We have been wanting a new tree for the longest time and I'm so excited.

Since we got married we have wanted to get our last name done like this. I found a website called Frame The Alphabet, I found a coupon code for $75 off so basically with shipping and everything we got it for 50% off. I can't wait to get it and hang it.

We are excited for today since our household goods will finally be delivered. I am ready to have our stuff back and be settled. I probably won't be blogging much since I will be unpacking, but knowing me we will be unpacked by tomorrow night.

I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!!
