On Christmas Day, we slept in late and got up just in time to start cooking :) The dogs got their Christmas presents and I talked to my family in Alabama on FaceTime. We made prime rib and mushroom gravy, pommes anna and green bean casserole. My husband is a fabulous cook!

Overall, we had a wonderful holiday and are so happy Vicki & Jes could come spend time with us before the baby gets here! We were so thankful to be able to stay home and celebrate this year since traveling while 8 months pregnant can be stressful and so tiring, thank you for coming, y'all!
Our New Year's was spent in warm, comfy clothes relaxing on the couch after a delicious dinner of steak, German nuremberg sausages, curry sauce, asparagus, rice and sparkling chardonnay grape juice :)
We had a great time watching the New Year's celebrations on TV and lighting sparklers on the deck!

much love, L&N
