Christmas Week(end)

Brett and I each had a five day weekend for Christmas which was WONDERFUL. Actually, Brett is off from school for 2 whole weeks, although he is still going in to see patients on certain days. We got even more snow. I swear there was at least a rock solid (and I really mean rock solid) foot of snow on the ground outside just from the past week. We are handling snow removal for our neighbors while they are out of town. They conveniently picked a very snowy week to be away, but we don't mind because they're good neighbors. Here is my snow-shoveling husband out clearing the walks on Christmas Eve:

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!
