"You will have significant experiences. I hope that you write them down and keep record of them, that you will read them from time to time and refresh your memory of those meaningful and significant things. Some may be funny. Some may be significant only to you. Some of them may be sacred and quietly beautiful. Some may build one upon another until they represent a lifetime of special experiences."

So Christmas Day was FABULOUS! We woke up like little kids @ 6:30am! We layed in bed & talked about how weird it is that this is our 1st Christmas together, that we're actually married (we STILL can't believe it! LOL) and how much we love each other. It was great just spending alone time together. Then we opened eachothers' gift's at about 7:30am. My parent's were having Christmas morning at 8am, so we joined them, Memory & Honor shortly after our own little Christmas morning. Here are some pics...enjoy!

Andrew & I infront of our tree on Christmas Day in our CHRISTMAS PJ's! Honor & I...opening up his play remote we got him so he will stop stealing Grandpa's!

Honor in the Christmas presents...he's getting SO big!

After this we went to Babette's for Crepes & presents with Andrews family. We brought our camera, but didn't take any pics....SORRY! But we had a great time & loved spending time with loved ones.

THEN....we went to the movies to see "Bedtime Stories." It was great. A little slow to get started, but it was really cute. =) And that concluded our Chrsitmas Day. It was a great 1st Christmas for us.

This Christmas Eve we spent it with my family. My sister & her family came from RSM to spend it with us. It was great having them over. We had a great meal that was prepared by my mom....GREAT JOB MAMA! Then we had presents, the kids' favorite part. We got some really cute stuff. I was a total stress case until this point because of everything we had to wrap, go buy and clean. Anyways, here are some pictures from Christmas Eve with the Bartletts!

So the day after Thanksgiving after shopping til we dropped, we took a 2.5 hour flight to visit some of my family in Colorado. Originally we were going there for the birth/blessing of my niece's baby but she never popped it out. LOL! When we first got there it snowed & it snowed for 2 days....can you say COLD?! But we also went to my Nephew's son's 1st birthday party. It was a really fun trip & we can't wait to go back!

Here we are in the FREEZING snow! It was fun....to visit.
