New Years + My Favorite Moments

New Years Eve one of our favorite couples came down from DC to visit us. It might have been from Z promising them that they would see a man dressed as baby New Year downtown Roanoke at midnight, which never happened, but they came, we had fun, and we'll take it!  

That afternoon, we had a late lunch with my family at the Hotel Roanoke and ate our fill of peanut soup, a true Virginia tradition. Afterwards, we wandered around the hotel looking at all the trees that decorated the halls. The ones below are some of my favorites. 

That night, we rang in the 2013 with cheap champagne and a morning that led us to sleeping in and Chick-fil-la. The perfect way to welcome in the new year if you ask me.

Christmas Day 2012

Christmas day was fun! We started off with coffee--much needed since we were still on West Coast time--and presents. Sawyer wasn't interested in it at all this year, but he DID get some pretty fancy presents that I think he'll learn to love as the year goes on. 

Waking up bright and early on Christmas morn! 
Some of Sawyer's gifts! My favorite was the wooden rocking horse that our neighbor gifted to him. I think it will look perfect in his nursery. I also loved the personalized stocking that his CeCe--my Mom's name for herself-- got him for when he celebrates Christmas at her house.

 Obligatory family photo and yes, as corny and as silly as it is, Z and I are wearing matching pajamas and next year Sawyer will get some as well. Thankfully, I have a husband who will humor me and go along with this idea.

Christmas night we had my Aunts, Uncles, cousins and grandparents over for dinner and gift-giving. Catching up  and seeing everyone made me thankful to be moving back to the east coast. Family time is one thing not to be wasted.

Christmas Eve 2012

We're BACK! 

After being gone for 2 weeks, we finally made it home late last night! And even though we had a blast back east, it really feels good to be back home and sleeping back in our own beds.  

Christmas Eve was really special this year. That morning, after standing in line for over 2 hours, Sawyer got to see Santa and sit on his lap! Even though, we were obviously excited for this photo-op, Sawyer was not. He slept through the entire thing. Oh well, next year! 

Afterwards, we went home to get ready for the Christmas Eve service at my parent's and Grandmother's church.

After a evening full of family, presents and homemade pizza (yup, thats how we roll on Christmas Eve!), we went home and slipped in our Christmas pajamas before calling it a night.
