christmas 2017 was definitely a good one. here's a quick run down:
we started christmas eve with ryan's family. every year, his grandparents, mormor and morfar, host at their house in high crest lake. there were about 18 people this year, so it was a very festive celebration! some of the gifts we brought were homemade roasted garlic infused olive oil. it was a lot of fun to create a personalized gift - hopefully everyone likes it as much as we do! christmas eve included fun conversation, sipping wine, opening generous gifts, sharing wedding photos, and attending a 7pm church service. ryan and i ended the night at our apartment with amber watching "serendipity".
on christmas morning, ryan and i opened our gifts at home in our little apartment and made cinnabuns. we quickly got ready and headed to ryan's parents house to exchange gifts with them and courtney, ryan's sister. then, we headed to my parents' house, where we spent time with my mom, dad, brother, sister, sister's boyfriend, grandma, grandpa, family friends, and three other dogs. we enjoyed each other's company, played games, and ate one of the best dinner and dessert combos i could imagine. props to my mom and sister for making such outstanding food!
from our family to yours, merry christmas! wishing you all a happy and healthy remainder of 2017 and a fantastic new year.
