the lovely month of December

December flew by this year! I was so glad that we decorated for Christmas in November since we left for Quinn's parents house on Dec 15th, we had a few weeks to enjoy our Christmas decor before we took off (plus I had to take it down before we left, I couldn't think about coming home and doing it in Jan).

Our December Highlights:

Our biggest news...Quinn graduated with his MBA!! Our time at Tech went by so fast I can't believe he is already done and that he did so well! I am soooo proud of him!

I helped my mom decorate for our churches Nativity Exhibit which was amazing! We spent several days and nights at the church organizing and decorating trying to figure out how to display over 400 nativities. It was incredible how many people came together to help make this event amazing! It was a great way to start off the Christmas season. I was also so grateful for the chance to take my kids to see the nativities and to feel the spirit and explain the real reason we celebrate Christmas.

Ugly Sweater Party!! We had a last minute Ugly Sweater Party that turned out awesome! We had soooo much food and it was all so yummy. We played charades, which was HILARIOUS, and a few other fun games. The best part was seeing one of our friends in footed pjs and he was sporting a mustache! It was so creepy and so funny.

Trip to ARIZONA! We were so lucky to get to go to AZ for three weeks this year! It was great to be able to spend so much time with family but it was so hard to say good bye. We are seriously missing all the cousins, delish food, amazing weather, and especially the trampoline!!
