Christmas Cards and More

I guess I should show you guys our Christmas Cards!! I am so excited about sending them for years to come, adding pets and babies, and all that fun stuff. Anyway, I bought them on Snapfish for I think $0.19 a piece . . . not bad!
I like how each pic kind of matches up with the word below . . . kissing for love, hugs for joy, and laughing for laughter!! --- I think my Mom is the only one who actually noticed that!
This is a pic of our friends fridge (you can see our pic up towards the top)!! Fun to be part of the whole Christmas Card thing this year. I can't believe how many we received this year too! It's like we are part of some club now!

Here is our mass collection of cards too!!

Anyway, hope everyone had a good Christmas! We sure did. Here are a few highlights:

Are we dorks for taking pictures with the cats?? Probably, but I don't really care!
Here is . . . some of our Christmas Dinner, a rib roast, roasted potatoes, gravy and brussel sprouts. Yummy!!! Also, it looks like we have spilled our wine glasses, but they are special tasting glasses . . . anyway . . . kinda cool.
And Candles!! And . . . cheesecake I made from scratch!! It is super yummy. I haven't ever made any before, but I thought it turned out really good!!

My families big thing was actually Christmas Eve we always had close family friends over for good food, good drinks, and good company . . . I made my Mom's traditional fair . . . Cornish game hens (everyone gets their own) with walnut stuffing, wine current sauce/gravy, mashed potatoes, and cinnamon rolls from scratch (I wish I had taken a picture because everything turned out beautifully this year, especially the cinnamon rolls, they were huge!!). Our friend supplied some other delicious food . . . a spinach salad with homemade lemon Dijon vinaigrette with pears, cranberries and homemade candied walnuts, a pickled hearing and beet salad (sounds weird, and maybe looks even weirder because it it bright pink, but it is actually pretty tasty), a green bean casserole, and deviled eggs!! Can you say gluttony??? Plus I had actually made the Cheesecake for Christmas Eve and someone brought an Apple Pie made without any sugar - just honey - it was wonderful!! Ok . . . a few pics now that you all are drooling . . . ok maybe its just me!
Gotta love the funny paper crowns found in poppers!! So funny. . . . oh and now that I see a mug, I made Mulled Wine too!!
Oh, you can see the bright pink hearing salad!!
And some deviled eggs!

And these were a beautiful early Christmas present from my Mom. Love the candle light! Hope you all had a good Christmas!!

Merry Christmas!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas . . . here is one of my favorite Christmas songs ever. Bruce Cockburn sings some very untraditional Christmas Music, so I bet most of you haven't heard anything like it before. Enjoy!

I hope you enjoyed it! If you want to listen to more of his Christmas Album, click here.

I'll be back in the New Year . . . one of the resolutions . . . finish posting about my wedding!!

I love this wedding #15

I think my favorite part of this wedding is the color scheme. Beachy, but not tropical. Simple and understated. Just sweet looking.
See?? Pretty Colors, simple look.
Beer favors!??!! AWESOME! I love the shall favors for when people get cold. So sweet.
Even the tequila matches the color scheme!!
