Long over due

UPDATE! It has been far to long since I have updated. Hopefully now that I have a little (or way to much) free time on my hands I will be better at updating. December is always such a crazy month, I don't know where to begin.

*To start off December I turned 25-birthdays just aren't as much fun when you get older. I told Bret next year I'm throwing a party with birthday hats and all! Don't get me wrong I was definitely spoiled! A birthday party just makes a birthday that much better!

*Our niece Hadlee was baptized! I don't know who was more emotional, me or her mom. Hadlee is the oldest granddaughter on the Pulley side and it just seems to crazy to me that she is 8 already. She was born one day after I turned 17 and it doesn't seem like 8 years ago. We are so proud of her for choosing to be baptized.

*We had our annual onesie party again at Grandma Parker's. Our crew was a little small this year but we still had a blast. We got talking and laughing so hard we were crying. There is never a dull moment with us girls and of course Grandma. She says the funniest things. We just love her! I look forward to this party every year! I think it is one of my new favorite Christmas traditions!


*We had so many fun Christmas parties this year and I didn't take a single picture at any of them. I have got to get better at taking pictures so my blog isn't just a bunch of words.

*We had such a fun Christmas this year. I LOVED that it was on a Sunday! I wish it was every year! It really helped to set the spirit of Christmas and what it's really all about! We were so spoiled by our parents this year. We feel so blessed to live so close to both of our families!

So Bret and I decided we were going to get a gun safe (my brother knows someone who is giving us a killer deal we couldn't pass up) We decided that since we didn't really "need" anything for Christmas we would just use that as our gift to each other. Of course a gun safe is not my idea of a fun Christmas gift. We decided we would fill each others stocking with fun little things since that's all we were doing for each other. (besides the safe) Well let me tell you-Bret really out did himself this year. He was so excited! I was pulling things out of my stocking...He got me everything I asked for~a pedicure and a gift card to red mango! I was thrilled! I reached to the bottom and felt a ring box~ I pulled out a perfect band to go with my ring. I was so excited and surprised, I cried! It was the best Christmas ever, I felt like I was engaged again and wanted to show everyone my new ring! After I opened it he said "did you really think I was going to let you get a gun safe for Christmas?" He knew I wasn't overly thrilled with it! He is to good to me!

*The last big thing for us in December was Parker's closing. I have so many pictures I think it deserves its own post.
We have had a great 2011~with lots of ups and downs. We wouldn't trade any of it! We have learned so much and grown so much closer to each other. We feel so blessed to be where we are and have the things we do. We can't wait to see what 2012 has in store for us!
