So I'm trying a new thing - I meal plan on Sunday nights so after I order my groceries online, I'm going to try to update the blog. We will see how it goes. Hopefully I'll be back before spring. :)
Christmas was great. We went to Louisville for a visit before hand, then traveled to Nashville, TN to the Opryland Hotel (more on that later), celebrated Christmas at home and then with the Buentes after Christmas. We made lots of memories and there are lots of photos to share!
Starting off with some of our Christmas traditions, old as well as a few new ones!
Our elf Chip came back and was sillier than ever!
