Last year's Christmas memories...

I love Christmas! I have so many fond memories of Christmas. I love the anticipation leading up to Christmas. I love exchanging gifts. I love baking and eating all of the goodies. I love Christmas music and Christmas movies. I really think it's the most wonderful time of the year!

Last December we went with Stephen's family and his mom's sister's family to a big cabin in Leavenworth, WA. It was so much fun! We played games, ate food, listened to music, ate food, danced, ate food, played in the snow and ate more food!

After our departure from Leavenworth, we headed to my parents' house to spend the Christmas holidays. There we played more games, ate more food, opened gifts and celebrated Christmas.

Here are some pictures from Last year's holidays and a glimpse of why I love Christmas time!

Warren and Jia Tai at the cabin

Melina and Wyatt showing us their dancing skills to some festive music!

Myself, eating. (If you only knew how much we ate on this trip...oh, it might make you sick!)

Therese, trying to decide which of the chocolates looked the best.

This picture captures how we spent most of our time, enjoying wonderful food and company.

That is so fun Paige! It is amazing to see how much Pear has grown up since last Christmas!
