ONE big weekend.

Lots of celebration been goin' on in the fam. Most importantly Clark graduated from Southern Poly; something to do with Engineering. It was a proud moment and know that Dad was with us.

And Cony and I celebrated our big One year. We kept it pretty low key- in fact we didn't even buy presents for each other. We just loved each other and spent the weekend in a really nice hotel and did NOTHING. It was just what the doctor ordered. Try it sometime.

I was on the hunt for a picture of me as a baby with my dad as Santa Clause. Didn't find it, but found these instead. I have very fond memories of Christmas growing up and can't wait to make those same type of memories with our kiddos. When we have them of course.

Just call us Martha

For the first time in a while I have been achin' for Christmas to get here so I can decorate! I haven't had a tree in a couple of years and this is the first for Cony and I to have 'our' tree. Christmas was almost forgotten last year since we got married only 10 days before.. But this year I started making ornaments weeks ago and last Monday Chay and I decided to have a craft day. I didn't go into work that day and we literally spent the entire day crafting things while watching sappy girl movies. Example: P.S. I love you. It was great. Although I still have some things left undone, I couldn't love my, I mean 'our' tree more.

Stockings I made out of felt. Very cheap.

Our first official ornament. 2007.

Our nativities.

This one my mommy made for us. One of my most treasured items.

I know this is random but these towels were our birthday gifts from my mom. She had them embroidered with a fork for Cony and spoon for me. Our nicknames for each other. I guess I should explain why we call each other by utensils. When we were dating and we would have a conversation through text messaging, I would say 'you are such a dork', but my phone always put it has 'you are such a fork'... it's one of those things. But I love these towels, most assuredly some of the best gifts we've gotten.
