Christmas came and went

All the Christmas decorations are down and boxed up for another year, I am sad that its over though, Christmas decorations always makes a home look more homey and its time to start preparing for a new year, a clean slate, what are your New Year's resolutions for 2010? Wow! 2010, how time flies!

Have yourself a merry little Christmas...

It's Christmas eve, and I have all the presents wrapped under the tree, looking forward to spending time with my family, watching old Christmas movies, and drinking a nice bottle of red wine with my new hubby by a warm fire;)

Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
Next year all
our troubles will be out of sight.
Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Make the Yule-tide gay.
Next year all
our troubles will be miles away.
Once again as in olden days,
Happy golden years of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us,
Will be near to us once more.
Through the years
We all will be together,
If the fates allow
Until then, we'll muddle through somehow
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now.

Our Christmas cards are finally in the mail...

James & I finally got our Christmas cards out. We try to make them fun, this year we used our wedding picture, a romantic one and a couple of pictures where we didnt look so gracious, however made for a really silly Christmas card;) Figured it was the only year we'd be able to used our wedding pictures, so why not;) and everyone loved them!

These are last years, James & I wanted to come up with something funny/corny, so we found some cute monkey footsie pajamas and took pictures by our little charlie brown tree;) They were a hit!

Let's see what we come up with next year!

Living in Monrovia...

Its been raining all weekend, but this morning, we woke up and the day is beautiful! James & I had breakfast at Peach Cafe... it was yummy! We sat out on the patio...I really like this little town! Being on the foothills, its nice to go out to our patio and see the mountains and the clouds so low! It's a beautiful sight, and such a refreshing feeling;)

Let's catch up...

This year James & I hosted Thanksgiving, it was intimate just my immediate family...James was such a good husband, he helped me cook and prepare for our first Thanksgivng as husband & wife...We set up a table outside on the patio, the weather was perfect for it. Dinner was delicious, the menu included, 2 turkeys ( I prepared differentlty, one with white wine, the other with red), mashed potatoes, macaroni & cheese, green beans, creamed corn, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and pies. Here's a picture of my lovely family, getting ready to share prayer and eat:)

Friday after Thanksgiving, we went up to Seven Oaks, where we rented some cabins, with James family...we woke up Saturday morning and it was snowing, so beautiful!!! Amanda, James cousin spoiled us, she cooked for us all weekend, and she's a really good cook, so it was definitely a treat!
