Dreaming of a White Christmas

This year has been AMAzing!! This Christmas was such an incredible blessing. Jordan and I made our usual trip to Austin to see (part of) my family. We did Christmas with my Mom, Patrick (18), John (24) and his girlfriend, Roxy on Wednesday night. We drove back Thursday--yeah, I know, short trip..but we had to fit it all in SOME how. I'm sad that I didn't get any pictures of us in Austin!! (It is really annoying me at the moment!) We didn't get to see Sam (12) or my Dad..they were camping with Sam's Boy Scout troop until Thursday morning, so, they agreed to come on the 26th to celebrate with Jordan and I in our home (more on that later!)

Shortly before getting home..just as we were entering Fort Worth, it began to SNOW. I don't mean like flurries, or, SNOWING. It was whirling all around us on the freeway, and it was absolutely beautiful. The snow didn't stop, either.

This was our house on Christmas Eve
A different shot, catching the snowflakes :)
Our annual dinner at Maggiano's after working up an appetite walking Northpark.
The future Mrs. Vineyard and the Matron of Honor.
Thats my hubby and I..we were standing next to the Nutcracker..he insisted on taking a picture next to it..oops, CROP.
The Massey Family- FULL of Rigatoni D.
A White Christmas! So gorgeous and fun! Britt looks silly- Jenna kept saying 'BIRD' to get her attention, which proceeded to engaged Brittany into gazing up in the trees..looking for a, what do you know, BIRD!!
Cheesy present picture for Bree Massey (J's momma)
My new Fossil sunglasses, I needed them SO bad.
Jordan got some sunglasses, too!
Opening my last, and most sought after gift!
You can't tell here, but I got a CAMERA! WOO-HOO! This was my last picture taken with my old camera.. awe-- not sad at all!!

AND- this would be my first picture with my NEW camera!! YAY! Brittany was perfect for picture-taking.
Jordan making breakfast..every year (since we've been married..) He has been making French Toast..MMmmM, Cinnamon French Toast, and Bree's Strawberry Mimosas!
Bree's abundant Christmas Tree
Playing with my camera..Bree's Tree, again
The Kirkpatrick's stopped by..LOVE these kiddos. Jenna has been babysitting them since the boys were born 6 years ago. Here they are with "Bee's" goodies. Thats right, hype them up and send them home!
Twin brothers, Luke and Cole
Jenna and her sweet boy, Cole (Sorry its blurry, I'm still learning about this camera- and it was too cute not to post!)
Smile- Au Naturalles
Pretty much did not move from this spot ALL day. Comfy on the after movie..oh, and Facebook on my iPhone. Can't LIVE without that..haha.
The Day After Christmas
It was still SO chilly- with snowy patches everywhere.. Jordan made another one of his fantastic fires!
Me cooking in my kitchen for dinner tonight with my Dad and Sam. Cooking with my new 10 piece Calphalon set. Again, without the make-up. Very lazy these past few days
Another Immerson Hand Blender. Santa (Jordan!) was SOO good to me this year!
Sam playing with his new pellet gun. The Boy Scout has his Rifle Patch, so Jordan finally broke down and got him one for Christmas this year. HE LOVES IT!
The boys watching football highlights...
While I prepared ALL this!
and Red Velvet Cake for dessert. My first attempt at it, and it was delish! Excuse the quality of the pictures..still learning, and working my way through the 144 page user manual :)
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas this year. I know that I surely was, with friends and family. The blessings continued to overflow and it leaves me speechless as I finish this blog post...
Glory to the New Born King.
