Christmas is an easy time to lose sight of what you're doing and I love that our Christmas traditions are very methodical and specific in spending time with family and going to church.
And now, for a bit of pictures,
Christmas cheer in the form of old school bows -
Here's Brie's new puppy, Boston, that we met on the 23rd! So cute. He's a 7 week old chocolate lab.
Christmas Eve night , Jake and I spent some time at our house just enjoying the tree and each other.
New ballet flat shoes from Land's End from my parentals - much needed (also got two sweaters and a dress from Land's End. Love it).
Much needed casual jacket for rain - my old one was shedding the lining all over everything.
Also I got two Pyrex pieces, this small mixing bowl and a matching pie plate.
Then it was off to Jake's parents for Christmas presents. Jake got a snuggie from his sister for Christmas! I told him he should wear it to the med school:)
We finished the day with dinner at Jake's Gran's house - but didn't quite make it there after running over something on the road and busting a tire. With no spare, we had to get the car towed to the shop and get Jake's dad to pick us up...
But then we were back in business and on the road. After dinner at Gran's, we finally went home. And just in case you thought the pets were left out, I wanted to share this picture of Harley with her new favorite toy that Beth got her, her pig: She loves it.
When we got home, it was time to admire our gifts and think about the people that gave them to us... I got this fab trench from Jake's siblings:
And while we love our presents, the best part of this week has been spending time with everyone and enjoying each other's company. After all, that is what is important.
In savoring the days left in Winter Break,
