The Holiday Season

It’s been so long since I’ve posted any personal photos on the blog; I’ve been slacking on pulling out the camera to take candids of my family. I caught a few good ones during the holidays, although not as many as I would have liked. Below are a few of my favorites!

Days 350-352: All kinds of holidays

This weekend we experienced both ends of the spectrum when it came to holiday parties – from the bar scene to church, and from the young to the old. Friday evening Jerod and I went to his work holiday party at Howl at the Moon Piano Bar. Bright and early Saturday morning we made the drive to his parents’ house to celebrate four Christmases. (Gift opening with immediate family, Christmas with Grandma, a Christmas concert, and a celebration with extended family.) Here are my favorite photos from each day.

You've gotta love the expression on the face of Jerod's coworker. I'm not sure if this was chance or if he saw me taking the photo, but it's perfect!
Our sweet, yet ornery nephew Caleb was excited to open Christmas presents this year.
Grandma Verle opens her pj's with a smile. After Jerod's Grandpa passed away last year, she's had to live in a nursing home.

Days 336-338: ‘Tis The Season

This weekend was filled with Christmas preparations and activities. Friday evening we attended the University of Kansas Holiday Vespers concert with songs from the KU Symphony Orchestra and the KU Choirs. I spent some time at my parents’ house on Saturday where I was able to admire my all-time favorite holiday decoration: my mom’s Dickens Village. And Sunday evening Jerod and I finally made time to put up our own Christmas decorations with just one minor injury. What are your favorite holiday traditions or decorations?

The KU Orchestra and Choir perform "It's the Most Wonderful Time of Year."
The Dickens Village collection.
A pile of Christmas decorations awaits my creativity and my husband's skills.
