I think I speak for us all when I say my absolute favorite thing about the holidays is spending time with family. (Ok...and the food and the booze and the extra long weekend). Our family kind of lives all over Houston and the surrounding cities and some even out of town so when we all get together, which is not often enough, it just really warms my heart. Screw the gifts. All I need is a fireplace, my family and a glass (or 4) of wine. Really...how boring would Christmas be without a big ol' family there to join you?
Scenes from Christmas 2012
While Beau and I racked up on new fun stuff for our house (lamps, full length mirror, rocking chairs for our front porch, etc...) there was one gift that absolutely topped everything...
I'm gaining another sister!!!!
I just love her reactions!! Talk about pure joy in her heart. :)
Yep! Baby brother got down on a knee on Christmas morning and popped the question to his adorable high school sweetheart, Brooke!!! We have it on video, too, but my IT locked me out of YouTube for the day (Grr!) so I'm not able to upload it just yet. Stay tuned...it's really really sweet!!
So there. Our little family is growing and we have yet another wedding to plan!! Merry Christmas to us!
I just love love.
(And our new fireplace.)
PS: if the title fooled you into thinking I was knocked up...sorry Charlie. ;)
