the holidays

I have been laying low on the inter web scene and really soaking up being at home enjoying jared on his break - we had a wonderful Christmas (I was lucky to have a few days off from Kenny's) followed by another low key week where I took an entire 6 days off from the studio and just worked at the restaurant.  I needed a little separation after the many late nights and countless hours - So thankful to have been that busy and very relieved my workload has lightened.  

We were able to spend Christmas with both of the families - starting with Lynn and David in Arvada.  
 The Boys

 The Tree on Christmas Eve - magical, and I didn't get a picture of the snow outside!  it was a WHITE christmas :)

Lynn making a delicious Christmas morning breakfast - French toast and BACON!
It was a lot of fun to do this puzzle too, can't remember the last time I sat down to put one together.  we finished it while watching nuggets games and movies.  very relaxing :)

 We shared Christmas day with Shanda, Chad and the girls at grammie and poppa Miller's 
it was fun having everyone inculding the pups together to open the tree!  

 There was some afternoon playing with new toys

pretty pretty princess, one of payton's favorite board games!
Mom and Dad prepared a fabulous feast including smoked prime rib, lots of potatoes, deep fried chicken, fruit salad.... yes, i overate.  and felt fat and happy!

Jared and I also did our traditional christmas together, went out for dinner at chili's and exchanged our presents together :)

I am so thankful to be surrounded by Love, My amazing husband & dogs & family!!  I love you all so much.  And couldn't have asked for a better end to this year.  It was perfect.
