Merry Merry

IMG_9198 (1024x634)Okay, so I’m a little late with the holiday greetings. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks…

On Christmas Eve, I used our new kitchen to the fullest, making two kinds of chili, cornbread, pasta, rice, a cheesecake and an apple pie (and I can say that I love, love, love the Wolf range and it was totally worth going into debt for). My husband’s family and my family (visiting from Hawaii) were all here at the house. Eight adults, six kids and two babies. It was chaos and it was great.

I put my phone (aka camera) down for most of Christmas week, and of course now I wish I had more photos of the family (zero shots of me, my sister and my mom together, which I was hoping to get and only one (blurry and lame) shot of Christmas morning), but sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and enjoy without worrying about documentation.

My family flew home in the wee hours of the morning the next day and it seems impossible that they were here for a whole week. Time never stands still when you want it to.

Wishes to all of you for a very happy 2015!

  1. I think the blogger’s curse this year might have been not enough family pictures and one blurry one! The same thing happened to me!
    Just another good reason to make more family time to get pictures :)
