A Belated Christmas Present?

For those of you who have been wondering if we are still pregnant due to the pause in blogging over the last few days, let me clear the air for you; Baby G hasn't made his grand entrance yet. In fact, he seems quite comfortable hanging out where he is, although mama and daddy are very much hoping that he arrives as a belated Christmas present within a few days.

In the spirit of Christmas though, I thought I would share a few of the lovely pictures we have gathered from this holiday season.

Beyond the numerous celebrations, we have also been able to put a bit more work into preparing Baby G's room. For Christmas, Grandpa built a toy chest for our family and we have now moved all of our little boy's toys and puzzles into this new space. The chest is beautiful and I couldn't resist the opportunity to show all of you how it looks in our baby's room!

This has truly been a wonderful Christmas season for our family and we have another celebration later today! Although it would have been wonderful to be a family of three this holiday season, there was something special about Jonathan and I having our first Christmas together as a married couple and enjoying that time, knowing that next year will be so different!


  1. It's so strange to hear your parents referred to as 'grandpa and grandma'!

  2. Congrats on the baby, sounds so exciting! I'm also a 22 year old Minnesota Native. Where abouts are you at? I grew up in southern MN. I've read some of your food posts and found your chocolate triffle recipe very interested - toblerone pieces, can't beat that!

    Maybe you'd be interested in a service I started where I make customized dinner plans for individuals that include grocery lists and recipes, and take into account your time, budget, nutritional needs, and taste!

    I’d like to hear your thoughts about the new service and if this is something you would consider trying or hearing more about? You give me a data and I give you a plan. Contact me at
