Our First Married Christmas

We truly enjoyed out first Christmas season as a married couple. It was so fun to pick out our tree and other decorations, as well as to start our own traditions. We are lucky enough to live near both our families, which is wonderful; however, it did make it a bit difficult to try and figure out how to still do everything we normally do while starting our own traditions and making time for ourselves as our own family. We decided we would do a big breakfast on Christmas morning. Both our families celebrate later in the day, but I've always been up and early Christmas morning! Our meal included oven baked French toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, Belgian waffles, and pumpkin bread. We were happy to have our first house guests to share it with - Colleen and Drew stayed with us the weekend!

Honestly, the best part of the whole season was getting to celebrate it together... Waking up together, opening presents together, driving around together instead of meeting up at different places, and going to bed together just made everything that much more special. Voltron loved all the fuss and having visitors there... He's a big fan of more people to play with!

We spent a quiet New Year's Eve together. We got dressed up, went out to dinner, watched a movie on the couch, and rang in 2012 sipping sparkling cranberry juice from our champagne flutes from the wedding. It was kinda perfect!

Very much looking forward to what 2012 has in store for us!
