Christmas Decorating for my Mom

So our dear friends Nick and Sydney invited us to David archuletta in concert with the Mormon tabernacle Choir last night. It was a crazy night and we almost didn't get it, but thanks to the sweetest little ladies who were ushers we got in. Was it worth it? Yes! I love him. It was such a fun way to spend our last date night with them before they head up to Washington for the next 6 months.  

Then up above you can see a few pictures of the decorating I did for my mom this year. It was so fun to get to use all her amazing decorations. She just has endless boxes full of the most amazing things. It was really fun and it already has me thinking of ideas for next year!

1 Year

I can't believe it has been a whole year since I was in Jerusalem. So much has happened and it still feels like I was just there. Some days I miss it so badly and all I want to do is look through my pictures. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. It was really hard of course to be away from Mike and my family but the experiences I had there changed my life. It was so amazing to be there during Christmas. We would have been in Bethlehem this last week. I have such a love for that place and I want to go back with my family some day I hope. So here is to one whole year of being home. I miss it a lot but I am really excited to be able to have those memories and the friendships I made there.

Gingerbread Time

This year was the year that my mom and I decided to go all out with the gingerbread house. We changed the pattern added a potting shed and outdoor fireplace. We incorporated stone work with chocolate rocks and we even busted out the fondant. It was so much fun but it was about a 3 to 4 day process to get the whole thing put together. It even has a light inside that you can turn on at night to shine through the hardtack candy windows. Merry Christmas!

Denmark Round 2

 Cute mother daughter photo 

 I wish this picture had turned out not blurry. My mom got jayne the most adorable black skinny jeans from Gap. She rocked the cutest black flats with it. She look so darling.

 How much do you love this fur coat we got Jayne. She fit right in with all the Danish women.

 We did initiatories at the temple in Denmark our last day there. It was a really amazing experience.
Here are just a few more of the pictures from our Denmark trip. We hadn't loaded my mom's camera yet and I thought there were a few that were must see photos of Jayner. Hope you enjoy!
