I was so excited to FINALLY have a white Christmas that I just had to take a snowy picture in front of our tree in our front yard.
Later that day we went to see the movie Four Christmases, which Brett & I can totally relate to. Then we drove all over town looking for a restaurant that was open for dinner. There were surprisingly few restaurants open for Christmas Eve dinner. After dinner and a movie we returned home to make some cut-out cookies. Brett & I have always just called them sugar cookies, but everyone in Iowa seems to call them cut-out cookies, so I will call them that too. :)
Christmas morning we slept in. It was wonderful. Then we went out to see what Santa had left under the tree:
(lovin' the bed-head)
Santa even brought something for Moose:
We hung out, relaxed, watched a Christmas Story a few times and made our own Christmas dinner. I don't have any pictures of that.
Friday we did our part to keep the economy going ;) by heading out for some day-after-Christmas shopping. I'm afraid I don't have a picture of that either, but we had a good time.
The rest of the weekend Brett & I focused on cleaning and getting more organized. I am especially proud of my completely re-organized closet:
I hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
