Merry and Bright

As you read this, we are on the road to see my family in mid-Missouri. Although the 8 hour car ride usually stinks, especially after working a full day landing us at our destination at 1 am I cannot WAIT to be in the comfort of 'home' again. We haven't been back since July, when I was merely 5 weeks pregnant and we outed ourselves to my parents in person. Before that trip it was last Christmas, so needless to say these trips all the way back home are few and far between.

I thought I'd leave you with a little Christmas cheer....

My new red coffee mug just screams Christmas, no?

And I completed our yearly ornament, so let's review the three married Christmases we've shared thus far:



This little guy is ALL over getting some grandma loving down in Missouri:

Oh, and how could I forget to reveal the final decision about my Christmas cards this year? They've all been delivered by now so it's safe to show you I chose not one but three pictures...

And I've heard lots of people say they approve!

So whatever you are doing this week, enjoy yourself and travel safely. We'll be back with numerous pictures of baby Matilda, holiday decor and general family fun late on Monday.
