Christmas Eve, we went to mom's and had a lovely dinner. Then gifts. Next, we headed to Grandpa Rutter's house and had a Christmas dinner with Dad, Uncle Wes and Anna, and my cousin Marshal. I haven't seen Marshal in forever. When with my dad's side of the family, a good time is always guaranteed. Uncle Wes set a new record by 7:30pm for the family, and we will leave it at that- no explanation needed, I guess it is an inside joke for our family. That night I returned home and got to talk to my soldier- best time of the day!!!
Then Christmas day, I returned to my grandfathers and spent some quality time with my little sister, whom I hardly ever get to see. She is 12 now, and getting so big!
I miss riding horses so much! I can't wait until Weston and I are able to live somewhere that I can have a horse. He wants to live in a mountain town, and that would be great. Here are some more pictures that I took of my Grandpa's Morgan Mare and his other horse.
Christmas time is a lovely time of the year. If you just remember that Jesus is the reason for the season, then it makes being away from Weston a little bit easier. I hope that next year I will be able to spend the holidays with my husband. But for now, we just have to stay optimistic-- close to 2 months left :) Yay! We are getting there. Once we hit New Years- it is going to go by very quickly.
I shall leave you with this: It is my favorite picture of Weston and I from our last photo shoot at Garden of the Gods in Colorado. I hope you all had a Merry Christmas!
I love you baby!
