SO here's a quick photo recap of my Christmas season:
It snowed a little in December but we missed the "big" snow on 5 inches. Doesn't our house look so pretty!?
And Rosalyn is not a fan of the cold. Other than the fact that she gets to cuddle a little more.
And I drank a lot of wine. Just because.
We stopped in Fort Scott on our way to Texas and had dinner and opened presents with Patrick's family. I made Patrick and Brian take a Christmas picture with me. They love pictures... sarcasm :)
And we had to take a picture with the dogs! Jett and Rosalyn!
Patrick and I got this from his cousin/godmother...
And Rosalyn got a bone. She loved it... as evident by photo below.
We ended up not staying the night in FOrt Scott like we planned. We learned that a big ice storm was coming in the middle of the night and we were afraid we would have trouble getting on the road in the early morning. Luckily, we made the right decision and drove about 4 hours south until around midnight to beat the weather! Fort Scott was a sheet of ice the next morning. We stayed in a hotel, got a few hours of sleep and then hit the road again. We made it to Texas safe and sound! And warm! We also ate a Whataburger... 3 times total on our trip. I don't even feel bad about it!
This was Patrick's first Christmas with my family ever. I did my best to prepare him for all of our silly traditions. I think he liked it haha. We went and ate pizza at Greek Tony's and then strolling down Old Town Spring and took all the silly pictures at all the same places that we have been doing since we were little.
|So in love with this man.|
Then we came home and watched Christmas Vacation by the light of the Christmas Tree. How Pretty!
|Rosalyn and Penny (my family dog growing up) are mesmerized by the million lights on the tree!|
|Jam packed in the SUV... mom in the trunk.|
|Brother and mom... and my bangs out of place.|
|Dad, Rachel and Patrick... lookin' good :)|
|Crammed into a booth! And my bangs out of place again!|
|My favorite person... and my dang bangs. Seriously.|
|Two of my closest friends from growing up in the Woods.|
|Family Photo in our pajamas. Ros has demon eyes like always... and didn't smile. She can be so difficult sometimes!|
Well... now we are back to Missouri and getting settled back in after all the excitement of the season. We hit the ground running as soon as we got here to get the house in order. More on that later.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and spent time with the people they love!
