we hope you all had as wonderful of a holiday season as we did!
we were crazy busy, hence the blogging break, between two different Christmases, a move into our new house, a trip to south Texas for a family reunion, another trip down to our Pop's 75th birthday, and a visit (first time in a year!) from uncle vince from med school!
we enjoyed our holiday and tried to keep Christ in the center of our Christmas.
we've had a fabulous, crazy, amazing year and can't wait to move onto the new year and more adventures!

|Saturday night mass|
|this season calls for lots of indulgent foods like homemade maple cinnamon rolls|
