We both agreed that going to Winterhaven (a neighborhood in Tucson that almost every house has phenomenal lights) when we first started dating was one of our favorite memories.
Whoa, this picture reminds me it’s been three years since I’ve lost the weight I put on in college and kept it off! Woot Woot!

December 24th- Make a Gingerbread House
My Mother In Law came up with the clever idea of stapling the pieces of paper together in a chain to put around the tree!
I think we did pretty good doing all the task on the day we drew it, there were only a few times we did a “redraw.” Given all the post wedding and pre holiday craziness I think it went pretty well. I can say for sure this will become a regular tradition in our family. I also made Paul’s parents a jar with the same tasks in it and it was kind of fun to text back and forth our daily drawings, it gave us a fun way to stay in touch! Thanks to one of my favorite bloggers for posting such a cute idea! See 24 Days of Togetherness at Carrotsncake.com.
