Our First Christmas Together

After searching long and hard to find an ornament that said something about "Our First Christmas", we ended up receiving 5. And they were all cuter than the one we found! It was truly a wonderful first Christmas as newlyweds, and it felt much like the wedding day in that it was over before I even knew it. We spent a wonderful few days celebrating Christmas in Virginia with Scott's family. Then when it was time to leave on Thursday our car would not start. (This is the fourth time we've had car trouble after driving to VA). We had it looked at, nothing was wrong, but we didn't leave until 7:00pm. After spending half of the night singing obnoxious Christmas carols in the car, we arrived home at 3:00am. I had one day to prepare for everyone coming to my house for Christmas, and we had church at 4:00. Somehow everything got done, and we fit everyone into our little house. We opened presents and ate dinner on our china plates (Thanks Jordyn!) in the living room. It was a fun time with the whole family, all topped off with a snowfall!
