Our Own Little Christmas

Peter and I always do our own little Christmas celebration where we exchange presents with each other. It originated from not wanting to pack our presents to each other, drive them all around with us and have them taking up room, only to bring them back home. I honestly love our time together alone. It's fun and sweet and just perfect!

We've also been taking an annual picture of ourselves with Cadi near our Christmas tree. It's always funny trying to get Cadi to look at the camera. We usually end up with a few of her running off or facing the wrong way. This year she did great, though!

Here, I thought we were taking another nice one, until Peter turned and was goofy at the last second. Wish I would've known!

Presents under the tree!

As we were exchanging presents, it started to snow! Peter tried getting some pictures, but it was a very fine snow so it was hard to pick up on camera.

Our beautiful tree. :) I think this year's was the best yet.

Peter loves musical snowglobes. A few years ago I bought him a musical snowman and this year I got a snowglobe that plays "Jingle Bells". I loved seeing his face when he opened it. :)

Peter bought me a beautiful teal dress. It was super cute on, too, but it was just a little too big. :(

New Gap pullovers for Peter!

We both enjoyed our evening together opening presents. I can't believe it's only 2 days until Christmas! Time flies! Tomorrow we'll be starting on our Christmas travels!

So I'm catching up on my blogs from the past month or so. I can't believe Peter bought you a dress. The day Aaron buys me clothing is the day one of my sisters picks it out and wraps it.

Haha - I picked it out. Peter says that he has a hard time buying me clothes so I will pick stuff out, but it in my online shopping bag and he can go to the different store's bags and pick out what to buy haha. Works great!
