A Christmas of Firsts

It was a wonderful Christmas full of firsts for us! Not only was it Parker's first Christmas, but it was also our first Christmas in our new home and in our new town, Nakusp. It was so nice to be able to celebrate in our little house, surrounded by snow. This was the first white Christmas I have had in several years and it just felt right! Patrick's parents spent Christmas with us and it was lovely to have family here to celebrate with. Christmas Eve was a relaxing day spent at a couple of open houses and taking it easy at home in between. Christmas day was even better. We took our time in the morning, had some skype time with my family, had a delicious breakfast, courtesy of my father-in-law, got the turkey ready and finally got to opening some presents. The afternoon was spent mostly playing with Parker and doing dinner prep and then in the evening we enjoyed our delicious Christmas dinner. Here are some pictures of our holidays...

The cutest, chubbiest little smile!

And that about sums it up! New Year's was lovely as well, spent with friends and enjoying some delicious, homemade pizza. We unintentionally stayed up to welcome the new year as Parker was overtired and it was rather difficult to get him to sleep once we were home. Ah, well! And now it is time for me to get planning Parker's birthday party... he'll be a whole 1 year old in just over a week! Ack! How did that happen!? We're have a little cat themed birthday for him since he seems to love kitties SO much. Hope you're also enjoying the fresh feeling and simplicity that I tend to find in this time of year!
