A Very Merry Christmas

Every year, Ryan and I rotate spending time with our families during the holidays. This year we spent Christmas with my family here in Arizona. The highlight of the vacation was getting a week off of work to spend time with family.

My sister and her family flew out from Michigan to spend the holidays with my family as well. The week was full of shopping, eating, playing, and shopping and eating some more! Seriously, I think I gained at least 5 pounds in the last week. Although my clothes are a little tighter, the week was a blast and we wish it could've lasted longer!

Charlie Brown Christmas Tree

Since Ryan and I trade off spending Christmas with our families each year, we've never felt the need to get our own Christmas tree. This year we decided that since we'll be staying close to home for Christmas, it was the perfect year to get our own tree. For the last two years we've carried on the "real vs. fake" Christmas tree debate. Since Ryan grew up with a fake tree and I grew up with a real one, we both see the benefits of doing it our "own families'" way. 

Being the great husband that he is, Ryan gave in and let us get a real tree this year. Although it's only 3 feet high, it's our very own Charlie Brown Christmas tree and we love it. NOW we can have a Merry Christmas!
