Hello, 2017! I think the general vibe around the internet is "Good Riddance!" to 2016, but it was a great year for us. We purchased our first home and had our beautiful baby girl...a very good year.
I realized that I haven't shared snaps of the haps around here since around Thanksgiving, here are some photos from throughout December. Sad that the holidays are over :(
Little lady was in a different Christmas outfit basically every day this December. A couple favorites:
I made my White Chocolate dipped ritz (recipe shared here). The consensus was that the sprinkles made them a little too sweet, would not use them next time.
Alfie's new favorite place to sleep:
We had mini date night at the new "Charles Town Fermentory" in Avondale. We both really enjoyed the Sungazer IPA.
Christmas Eve Party at my in laws.
EB had fun at her grandpa's bar and grill:
My baby's first Christmas morning!!!!
Sausage Strata and cinnamon rolls, our Christmas breakfast tradition:
Santa brought EB a swing for the tree in the backyard, and a soft learning book.
She also received a bunch of costume jewelry for future dress up play.
These clip on earrings were her great great grandmother's and I know she will just love them one day.
(My aunt brought over a bin of my grandmothers jewelry and we had a fun time going through it on Christmas Day)
We hosted Christmas Dinner for 10.
Honey glazed spiral ham
Seven layer salad
Green bean casserole
Baked brown rice
Macaroni and Cheese
Christmas was a beautiful day, albeit slightly warm, and we enjoyed being outside all day. EB was the center of attention, here with her Granddaddy Bill.
One of Kev's stocking stuffers were these Funky Flames that change the colors of fire.
We used them in lieu of fireworks on NYE.
Annnd that's a wrap on 2016!
I am spending this week taking down decorations and detoxing a bit from all of the recent indulgence.
Here's to an even better year to come!
