...and that's christmas 2011!
We had a very merry Christmas this year! Although I sorely missed going to the big Christmas celebration on my dad's side of the family due to work obligations, I was so grateful that my parents were able to visit us a couple of weekends ago for an early Christmas celebration! We walked amongst the pretty lights on Harding University's campus (see TC's pictures of the lights here and here), took family pictures in the university's decked out hotel lobby, enjoyed yummy food, ate too many desserts (of course!), shared our gifts with one another, and just enjoyed each others' company! I also baked my very first pecan pie! :) Now that Christmas is over I feel a little deflated, everything seems so drab compared to the bright Christmas lights, the red, green, gold, and silver decorations, and the smiles and "Merry Christmas" wishes we receive from complete strangers...is this just me or does everyone feel this way after Christmas?...this is also why my tree is still up...the pretty lights are so warm and cozy that I'm just not ready to take them down! TC and I are pretty excited about our upcoming trip to visit his parents in Atlanta! We have big plans to visit the aquarium and World of Coke! I'm sure this will ward off my post-christmas blues! ;)
Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed time spent with family and friends!
