Christmas 2013 Recap

I don't know about you but the Christmas season felt like a whirlwind for me. The decorations were up and then right back down. I figure I better write it down before January is over and I'm on to the next thing. So here are a few Christmas 2013 memories.

 Alex and I traded trees this year. I had a six foot tree and a family room with a vaulted ceiling that goes up to about twelve feet. She had a nine foot tree and all eight foot ceilings. So we traded. I really wanted to incorporate more white into the tree for a "winter wonderland" theme but it never happened. Maybe next year.
 This is a really cool store that has a whole show room of Christmas trees. So of course we had to take a picture. I'm really kicking myself for not taking a picture of the red Christmas tree.
 The same store with the Christmas tree showroom has a green house and they had these little fairy gardens set up. They were pretty elaborate which made them so much cooler.
 Alex and I planned a somewhat spontaneous trip to Ikea the day after Christmas. She had never been before and it was a fun adventure. Of course I didn't need anything but it had been over two years since I have been to Ikea and we both packed her car full.
My turkey club sandwich from my date with my love. We had just watched the new Hobbit movie and decided to stop by a deli for lunch. I have never seen a sandwich cut in fourths like this. It made for a good presentation but trying to eat this like a lady was a challenge.

We took down the decorations January 1 so it is on to 2014! I am excited to see what God has in store for us in the new year!
