- This blog used to be about me and my new husband starting our life together in Brookhaven, Georgia. Now, 8 years, 3 children, and 1 trans-continental move later, I'm writing for me; to document the emotional and spiritual journey I am on so that I don't forget the paths I have traveled in my heart and mind.

Here is a new tradition that we started this year upon Daisy's receiving a new game for Christmas (can't remember what the game is called). At the end of a round, the winner has to do a funky dance, which is too much fun for one person to do alone, so we all joined in on cutting a rug at the end of each round.... I think Daisy wins the best dancer award... at least the most enthusiastic :)
After a day of shopping (so fun) the girls took the kids while the boys played. We spent the morning bouncing at Monkay Joes. I felt so sorry for the other girls because they weren't as cute as Daisy or even anywhere close to it.

We had fondue for our "Christmas Dinner" ...ahemmm Chris is just pouring us some sparkling grape juice.
We had fun eating the fondue and then we opened gifts. Chris did so good on my gifts... and he wrapped them really well, too! (I felt the need to don a fancy dress for the occasion)
Afterwards, we went to Cheesecake factory and ate dessert... It was such a perfect first Christmas and we are so excited to spend Christmas day this year with Mom, Dad, Dan, Mel, Daisy, and Isaac (Anna, Don, Jon David, Luke, David, and Eryn... you will be very sorely missed)
Just think, this time last year I was trying to plan a wedding while studying for quals... ahhh the relief
