The Holidaze

Christmas Eve is my favorite day of the whole year! It was spent at the comfy, cozy Bench home with soup, salad, rolls and lots of yummy treats. Snuggies kept us warm :-) Favorite traditions: Reading the Nativity story and watching "Luke II."
What would Christmas be without family?
I sure love my dad!
These are the Christmas turtles I made for neighborhood gifts. It was so easy!
Landon reading us a Christmas story, as only he can!
Em giving us a lesson on some yoga poses.
All of this made possible by dad and mom.
Christmas morning- Wendi's traditional monkey bread that we all love.
Breakfast before presents. We obviously don't have any little kids in this home yet!
Who would have thought I could be so excited about industrial shelving for our basement!
Thanks to the gifts from Chris & Wendi, it was a very Snuggie Christmas!
And of course, the Secret Elf brought us all warm gloves on Christmas Eve.
The benefit of being married- two families to share the holidays with! Down at the Fox ranch- we're all relaxing and maybe dozing off a bit.
Our second Christmas together being married- maybe next year we'll have more than just our dogs to spoil?
New Year's Eve- we went for a snowy hike in Corner Canyon. It was so beautiful, but SO cold! The night for me was spent taking care of drunks and sick people. The worst night of the year to work in the ER!
