Oh man, sorry I'm such a bad blogger! Back in the Xanga days, I was a blogging beast! Everyday I would be writing a Xanga post in my head. I would look for little adventures to turn into great stories in a blog. However, now my life is very ho-hum and it's just a little harder to do that. I'm gonna work on that though!
Weston and I had our own special family Christmas tonight since we'll be out of town until the 27th. We went to El Sombrero (of course! our FAVORITE!) then drove around Longview and looked at Christmas lights and HUGE houses. Then we came home, exchanged gifts, and read the Christmas story. This is what we're gonna tell our kids someday "As excited as you are about your presents, you should be more excited about Jesus, so we're going to put away the toys and read the Bible." :) Think that will go over well?
Weston got me wonderful new black heels that I have desperately needed! They are SOO nice! I wish I was going to work tomorrow so I could wear them, but it's really ok that I'm not going to work. He also got me REAL PEARL EARRINGS, which I have wanted for like...forever! Goodness, he is so perfect! (And not just because he gets me great gifts!)
I got him this awesome airplane picture in a frame and this manly soap/shampoo bar. Although the soap sounds lame, he was SOO excited. It's "soap for the meat and potatoes guy." He wanted to take a shower the second he got it to try it! But he refrained.
I finished wrapping presents (which is one of my favorite things to do) and we are getting ready to head to Mount Pleasant for several days full of holiday family fun. I think we are ALL going to especially enjoy it this year.
Merry CHRISTmas!! :)

I was REALLY wanting to do Christmas cards this year. So one evening we all (me, Weston, AND Oliver) put on our Christmas clothes and sat in front of the tree FOREVER trying to get a good picture. We finally got one and I was stoked to find a cheap card website and make our little family Christmas card.
But I made a mistake.
I was playing around with the picture and editing it and I put this soft filter on it. It kind of made everything glow and I was like, "Ohhh! THAT'S Christmas-y!!" so I instantly used it for the cards. After ordering the cards, I noticed that it kind of made the picture look blurry. Annnd we got them in the mail yesterday and they totally DO look blurry.
Sad day. I ruined our first Christmas cards. I'm still going to use them but I'm not proud of them. I think I'm going to write an apology on the back of each one. Here's the pic:
