Christmas 2010

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I know we did....
This year we had to stay home in Colorado instead of going home to visit family, but it was the best decision for us. We have wonderful friends and a church family that we never felt alone. The secret is out, we opened our presents days before Christmas. I kept a special one for Jeff to open on Christmas from Santa and of course the pups opened their gifts as well. We were so blessed this year that we decided to have a low key Christmas (as far as gifts go) because we just moved across the country, bought our first home, and experienced many medical issues with one of the dogs so a low key gift exchange was in the books. I'll post about my special gift later from Jeff.
Christmas Eve we watched a Christmas movie in our new theatre upstairs (more to come on that) in our holiday pajamas (well, just me...not Jeff). It was nice to cuddle up to Jeff for the second year in a row on Christmas night. I feel so blessed to have another year with him HERE and not overseas. I just pray next year will be the same.

Christmas Eve 2010

Christmas morning I made homemade french toast sticks and we opened our gifts from our families. They were so good to us this year. I wish we could have gone home, but maybe next year they will all come to us :) hint hint.

After we ate and opened gifts we went over to Gary & Annie's for a huge breakfast. I made 55 french toast sticks and could not believe there were leftovers.

Christmas Eve we had some great friends over for food and games. I made lots of goodies and reallllly enjoyed our company. For your enjoyment, here are a few pictures that will make you laugh.

You wouldn't believe it but this man is our preacher, but don't worry Southwest members...he won't quite his day job...even though sometimes he might think he has potential in the acting/singing/comedian field.

Here are a few pictures of our cherades game. The only picture I did not get was Jamal (sorry J) I promise next time I'll get ya.
The photo below is the guys' team realizing they lost to the girls!

Overall, it was alot of fun. I enjoyed spending time with this family...and new friends. I hope that next year brings us just as much joy as well as a special joy :)
