Christmas 2012

December 31, 2012

Hey there! I’m back! :) This month’s posting has been a bit choppy, but things have settled down a bit, so hopefully I’ll post more often. :) I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Ours was great. We celebrated it Christmas Eve, because the next day we were going to travel. Here’s a few pictures from our festivities:

Christmas cookies! Mmm. We carried on the tradition of decorating them together as a family this year. :) We also read The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, a short and funny Christmas book. Mom usually reads it out loud each year in one sitting while we have Christmas cookies and cocoa.

A friend gave my brothers and I sweaters for Christmas.

I made special cinnamon rolls in the shape of a cross for Christmas morning. These are so yummy that I’ll post the recipe sometime if you want to try them.

And before opening presents, Austin and Jonathan took turns reading Luke 2. It was a special and memorable Christmas this year.

The next day (on Christmas morning) we left to go see family up in Wisconsin, but something totally unexpected happened halfway through our trip…. so stay tuned for more! I post on it next. :)

Happy New Year!!!

    Hi Brooke,
    I don’t know if you remember me or not, but I used to babysit for your family :) I was at home over Christmas and saw the Christmas card your mom sent to my parents, and stumbled across your blog! It’s amazing to see the young woman you’ve grown into!! Could I get your mom’s email address? You can send it to me at mnlovin@gmail.com. I had actually been looking for you all on facebook/online, so I was excited to see your blog.
    Happy New Year!
