Merry Christmas {2016}

It’s hard to believe that it’s already Christmas again! It’s been a very busy and exciting year.

Christmas Break Has Begun

Christmas Snapshots

I’m *finally* getting up a few photos of our first Christmas in Oklahoma. It was a bit of an adjustment this year, trying to figure out where to put the tree and decorations and how to arrange things so our family from afar could be comfortable.

Christmas Photography

We were blessed with a wonderful Christmas holiday. We got to see Terry’s mom, dad and grandmother, as well as my mom. We enjoyed a lot of good food, too! I hope to share some photos of all of that soon. Before we took the tree down, I wanted to try to capture some photos… Continue reading Christmas Photography
