Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
I have so many weddings and events from 2011 to add to the blog, but our sweet little blog has fallen behind cookie decorating parties, Christmas programs, wrapping presents and spending time with family on the 'To Do' list.
The first week of the kids' Winter Break, we drove up to Kansas to surprise my husband's side of the family. We had an amazing time with friends and family, and we got to take the kids to experience a lot of the things we loved as kids (i.e., Kaleidoscope, Crown Center, and the Plaza Lights). We got home two days before Christmas and enjoyed Christmas in our own home. It was a beautiful day filled with screams of joy over the gifts Santa Claus brought.
By Christmas evening, I started to feel sad, as I do every year, that all the anticipation and excitement was over, however the next day, we drove up to a cabin my parents rented in Helen, GA to spend time with my side of the family. We spent the week opening gifts, sitting around talking and laughing, watching the kids play and antique shopping. It was exactly what I needed to combat the 'after Christmas blues'.
Now, I am back home and ready to tackle the New Year!
I am also excited for all the weddings we will be part of in 2012.
I hope you all have had enjoyed the holidays, and I wish you all love, joy, success and happiness for 2012.
