2011 was a new challenge for me, for our marriage. Every year since we got married, the "biggest" event of the year has been something positive.
2008 ~ We got married in April and then found out in October we were pregnant.
2009 ~ We welcomed Ryanne into the World in July.
2010 ~ We bought our first house.
However, 2011's most memorable event was most certainly Trey breaking his spine. What a roller coaster that was! We are so blessed that he has healed well, and is back at work. God also blessed us with the news that Drake will join us in 2012. I look forward to all that he has in store for us next year, and thank God for His protection during this past year and its' many trials.
On a more fun note, it is amazing to compare how much Ryanne has grown over the past year.

We started off Christmas this year by opening family presents first. Ryanne got to open her presents from Mom and Dad and Trey's parents also came and we opened presents from them and they got to open our presents to them.
Later in the week, Santa came to visit and left Ryanne the rest of her presents. We also made stops at Trey's grandparents, my Dad's, my Mom's, and both of my grandma's houses. I always feel like we are on a carousel around the holidays, but we're thankful for all of our family.

Some of my favorite blogs are doing a holiday tour of homes today, so I thought I would join in on the fun. This year has been kind of crazy between Trey getting hurt, and me being pregnant, our decor is kind of slim this year but I enjoy it anyway!
This little sign and several other knick knacks are scattered throughout the house.
Of course, you have to have some scentsy love in the Christmas decor!!
Our big Christmas tree
This jar is surrounded by a deco mesh wreath on my coffee table
This is just a little bit of the Christmas decor in my kitchen.
Of course, Ryanne has a little tree in her room!
This sign and some more of my save all deco mesh is on the bar.
This is more winter-y but it gets packed & unpacked with the Christmas decorations!
