Christmas 2013

This Christmas season has been a whirlwind. Between Thanksgiving being late this year, a super busy holiday season at work, and pregnancy, I was totally behind this Christmas. We never quite finished our Christmas decorations, didn't send out a Christmas card, didn't make goodies for neighbors and friends, and I even found myself shopping for presents on Christmas Eve. I'm hoping that this Christmas season is not telling of all Christmas seasons to come. If pregnancy makes me behind, who knows how behind I will be when I actually have a baby. But we won't think about that...I am committing to planning ahead for Christmas 2014.  The good news is that Christmas isn't about decorations and presents and being super on top of things. We had a wonderful day celebrating with Fletcher's family. I am thankful for the time to pause and remember our Savior's birth, and the hope and new life we have in Christ. 
Christmas Eve we went to church and then had Fletcher's family over for dinner. 
Mushroom puffs are always an entertaining staple at our house. For dinner we had chicken and wild rice casserole, salad, and rolls. 

For dessert we had white chocolate pecan bars, peanut butter balls, and mint brownies.
Christmas day we headed over to Fletcher's parents house and spent the day with his family. After a delicious breakfast, it was time to open gifts. Baby girl got all sorts of goodies for Christmas! It is so fun to unwrap pink baby things!

After dinner, we played Christmas bingo. We had such a great time playing, and the game was complete with fun prizes! It was a fun and festive way to end the night. We loved getting to soak up the day with Fletcher's family and are looking forward to seeing my family this weekend!

  1. The decorating you did looks great and you entertained on Christmas Eve! I'd say you're pretty on top of it! You'll be great with a baby! I would like your chicken and wild rice casserole recipe. Delish!
