Our Family Tree...Literally

It's definitely not perfect, but after many hours of hard work, our tree is finally ready for our first Christmas in our new home!


A New Tradition

This year we decided to make our Christmas tree experience a little more interesting. In Arizona, they sell tree-cutting permits so you can choose and cut down your own tree during the Christmas season. So yesterday we ventured out to the forest with our friends Melanie and Jared to find our tree. While I wouldn't necessary call our tree the "perfect tree," the experience made it absolutely worth it. I think it's pretty safe to say that we have a new family tradition!



Although Ryan and I have been married for 3 years, this year was the first Thanksgiving we'd spent at my parents house. As always, dinner was amazing and we had fun getting to spend the day with family!

Ryan's brother Rob always seems to get stuck with the dishes

3 Years

It's official - Ryan and I have been married for 3 years! And a crazy 3 years it's been! From graduating from college, moving to AZ, getting "real" jobs, and buying a house, it really does feel like we've grown up together. Ryan - You're a great husband and I couldn't imagine my life without you. What can I say boy, there's just something about you!

I love you Ry!

Dressing Up

While Ryan's niece was in town, we whipped out my old Barbie's for her to play with. After seeing what a large selection of clothing we had for the dolls, we decided to have a contest to see who could dress their Barbie in the cutest outfit.

If you're wondering what happened to their hair, ask my sister Adrienne. I do not take responsibility for their awesome "do's." For those who watch "The Hills," we named our dolls Spencer, Heidi, and Lauren. Can you guess which one was Ryan's?


Wedding Weekend

This weekend, Ryan's family came to town for his brother Steve's wedding. Although we didn't get to spend much time with Steve and his new wife Kristi Kay, we had a ton of fun hanging out with the McFarlane clan!

Kristi Kay has two kids close to the same age as Ryan's nephew and niece
