HandMeDown Christmas

I absolutely adore Christmas. The only problem is that it usually sneaks up on me & I don't really have time to enjoy this time of the year. This is my first Christmas being married, so it's pretty darn special. One of the most specialest (yes, I realize that isn't a word) parts is that my mom gave me a few of our family decorations. & if you know me, you know how much I LOVE handmedowns. (Again, I realize that isn't a word- thank you spell check)

Here are a couple of the things she's given me so far:



The nativity scene we've had since as long as I can remember. Minus Mary. Her head fell off and I still haven't gotten super glue. I really need to get on that.



The ceramic santa cookie jar and mugs that my great-grandmother made.



The angel we had on top of our tree when I was little.

In other news, I went with Liz, Hannah (my sister), and Shawni to see the Nutcracker last weekend. It was ah-mazing! What more could you ask for- best friends, pretty dresses, ballerinas, and wine. Oh, that's right you could ask the male ballerinas to put some pants on. Seriously not a good idea to drink wine before going to see men prance around in tights. Apparently it's not appropriate to laugh at the ballet.









One more thing- I finished my first semester of grad school! I can't believe I made it out alive.

Okay, goodnight.

    Shonna- I MISS YOU SO MUCH! I am working, but not full time. Most of my classes require observation/lab hours during the school day. Then we have class in the evenings. So I just work when I can. I don't know how you are doing both. craaazy. Anyway, I'm going to Visailia January 15th. Your gonna be there right :)
