These Lovely Burbs

Holiday Wrap Up Part 3

I know Christmas has far past and this post is sooooo late… but because the snow is falling outside, I say we’re still good! This is a long picture post- you have been warned.

Here’s a glimpse at how we spent Christmas 2011.

Our Tree; from the farm to our home

December adventures:

Listening to Christmas albums, crisp winter air at the farm, gingerbread cookies, a trip to Peacock lane, decorating our tree, enjoying beautiful Portland, making Christmas gifts…

…gingerbread houses, a messy craft room, lighting advent candles, packaging apple butter, watching paper whites grow, hosting holiday dinners, and more nights around the advent glow.

Christmas Date with my sweet little buddy:

Progressive dinner with very dear friends: exchanging gifts, great food, and great company!

Curry & sweet potato vegetable pot pies for dinner at our house!

Chris & I doing what we do best.

Smores & roasted marshmallows in C&C’s new BEAUTIFUL fireplace!

Christmas Morning

Side note on my Christmas wrapping this year: I decided to go with a “rustic Christmas” theme. I found this natural brown paper at Home Depot in a giant roll for $4 in the paint section! I loved the way it looked with the doilies and ribbon.

My favorite find: the white “snowball” yarn I used as ribbon. It was only about $2 and I still have so much left over!

And we ended 2011 with our favorite New Years sushi making tradition with dear friends.

Looking forward to all 2012 has in store,
