Chad and I got married on June 12, and now, six months from that glorious day we celebrate our first Christmas. It's been an interesting half-year full of ups and downs, and we've grown much closer. Here are a few pictures of our Christmas festivities.
|Our first family portrait. Rowdy joined our family in September, and we immediately became inseparable. He had been left at a laundromat in Trumann, AR, and was passed from one person to another until he found his way into our home.|

My cousin's youngest two children, Fuller and Eden, were having a blast opening presents at my parents' house last night. Seeing children open their presents is, without a doubt, my favorite part of Christmas.
We are spending this Christmas in Sheridan with Chad's family, which makes this year my first to be away from my family. I hardly know what to think about not spending Christmas Eve at my Grandma's farmhouse. I did, however, bring my family tradition of glass-bottle Cokes and sausage balls for breakfast. I'll be making them for Chad's family in the morning!
Here's to starting new family traditions! Hope you all have a blessed Christmas, and remember that Christ is the reason we celebrate.
