Whew! After Florida, we needed a few days to just hang out and regroup but after that it was time for some Christmas festivities!

Fun times at the YMCA Holiday Party
My friend Alma and I hosted a holiday party with our friends. We did a white elephant exchange and it was just a good time getting everyone together (kiddos too) before the holidays.

Tables all decorated. We had the party at a local restaurant.
Gift bags for all of the kids.
Some of the desserts (snuck in a birthday cake for Brian since it was the day before his birthday!)

The day of Brian's birthday we opened presents (new car mats...yes!), went to church, brunch, and then we went ice skating downtown.
It was Brady's first time and he was pretty pumped
He thought the skates were funny
Look Mommy, we're skating!!

Brian and his birthday cupcake
In December we also got new carpet. It ended up being a huge project moving everyone's stuff but we love it! Here's Rascal laying on the old carpet one last time.
