December was a fun and busy month! It started off with a big milestone for me: my 35th birthday! I swear I was just 25! We celebrated by going to church, having lunch at one of my favorite places, and eating cake, of course. It couldn't have asked for a better day.
I can't document December without sharing two of my favorite decorations: our tree and the JOY sign I made for our front porch.
The Christmas season wouldn't be complete without our annual Gingerbread building and visit to the light show at Mike's Farm
We also couldn't miss our local production of The Nutcracker. I can't wait until I can take both of my sweet girls.
We FINALLY saw the Trolls movie. Emerson has been counting down since she first saw the trailer at the beginning of the year. We all loved it!
Jesse's Marines came over for a Christmas party and we had a ton of fun. I took the opportunity to give our chalkboard a festive makeover.
I also put my Silhouette to good use for our Dirty Santa game. I mean who wouldn't want a coffee cup with their boss' face on it?
We had some pretty cold days but that didn't stop us from tricycle riding and a visit to a new park.
Jesse and I have both mentioned multiple times how big the girls seem this month. They are just growing up right before our eyes. I sure love these sweet girls.
I think the only downside of December was saying bye to Mimi and Pa. Our big girl had a really hard time with it. Adelyn told me she wishes they would move closer to our house. It's hard living so far away but it makes us extra grateful for the time we do get together.
December, you were such an awesome month and a fun way to end a pretty great year! Now bring on 2017.
