have yourself a merry little christmas...

 Christmas in Vegas went a little like this...

{our Santa for the night!}

Christmas Eve Favorites:

Christmas Day Favorites:

Great food!

{He is so good to me}

What would a year be like without Christmas?
It is by far one of the greatest holidays ever.
I would have to say my favorite part is family coming together!
We had a wonderful Christmas hosted by my Mom and Grandma!

 This past Wednesday my cousin Alena lost her battle with breast cancer.
She was so beautiful inside and out.
She has two children who she has left with amazing memories of their Mommy.
It has been a hard week for my family but I know she is not sick anymore.
I know she has energy again.
I know she is laughing with her perfect laugh.
We miss you and we love you.
You're our angel.

I am...

I woke up to this.
Josh got up at the crack of dawn with me and before I left for work he had made me a delicious breakfast!
My favorite breakfast to be exact.
He even gave me a present that I have wanted for a few months now!
Then it was off to work where I was greeted with this!!
I love the teachers I work with!
Later that night we met up with some friends to celebrate at red lobster.
{popcorn shrimp and cheesy biscuits please}

 So lucky to have him!
 Cute Whitters at my dessert party!
 Yummy treats made by Jessie and Whitney!
 Life would suck without my girls!

Catch Phrase Tourney!
We obviously take this game very seriously!
We played till midnight and even then we had tell ourselves to stop cause it was so late!

My birthday was amazing!
I have wonderful friends and family!
I am surrounded by people that continue to amaze me with their greatness! 
Thank you everyone for making my day so so special!
{love you}
