Merry Belated Christmas!

This year’s Christmas was very different for the hubby and I. Last year my in-laws decided they wanted to take the whole family to Disneyland the week of Christmas, so that’s where I was this past week.

First ride of the day!

Merry Christmas!

My other set of in-laws came down to Southern California on the 23rd, so once we were done in Disneyland we spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with them and the rest of the family. Then last night Joshua and I celebrated Christmas with my family.

Because we weren’t around for Christmas, I set up the tree (the day before Thanksgiving) in the dining room, hung our stockings and that was it as far as decorating. Next year I want to be able to switch out those two big prints for some nice Christmas prints. Ran out of time to print my Christmas ones this year.

I did manage to make a spot for all the wonderful Christmas cards I got this year.
