Holiday Decor

After two years in Switzerland we finally got to brush the dust of our Christmas decorations and put them on display. I had tons of fun doing lots of shopping at Pottery Barn to update some our decorations. After all they are two years older.


We got an early present of a new couch. It was delivered on the 23rd of December. Talk about the timing. It was so exciting to get a big comfy couch to chill on for the holidays.

Christmas Memories

We were able to go to my parents again this year on Christmas Eve. My dad was in charge of the crab legs, Josh was on the grill, and I was on desert duty. After dinner we anxiously waited to opened presents. Josh was really surprised when my mom gave him a Golf Club. I was excited to get some new pillows for my new couch. We were equally excited to give Brian and Melissa a chocolate themed gift basket, which included a fondue pot. We absolutely loved celebrating with the kids. It was fun to watch the new babies get buried in all the wrapping paper. I especially loved the end of the night when I got the kids excited to look out the window to try to find Santa. It was hilarious when Brian scared the kids by taking a Santa Doll sneaking under the window and popping up with it. All the kids were scared to death and didn't want to see Santa anymore. It took an hour to convince them it wasn't the real Santa just Brian playing a joke. Oh what fun my family is!!

Birthday Wishes

I have loved ballet since I was a little girl. So it was appropriate for Josh to surprise me for my Birthday with tickets to the Nutcracker. And it was everything I pictured it would be. Josh was a good sport and didn't complain through the entire show. I consider him being there with me half the gift, seeing as I know he suffered through it.

I have had the pleasure of sharing my Birthday with my very own twin brother. From when we were kids, my mom has gone all out for us. She is big on parties. One of my favorites being the limo party she surprised us with when we were 15.I can't believe that was 12 years ago This year my mom made an amazing meal and an Alaskan ice cream pie to top it off.

Josh's family has a tradition that when there's a Birthday, the spouse makes dinner for the entire family. So Josh worked really hard picking up the phone and making reservations at our favorite restaurant "Asian Star". I wonder what I'll be doing for his Birthday this year.
