We had and are having a great holiday! Our time with the Gillsons was wonderful as always. 

One of my favorite parts was going "Up to the farm" to see Rowan's grandparents. They are some of the dearest people I have come to know. They have been married for 67 years. As you can tell from this photo they are still in love. Spending time with them, listing to their stories and their whit is a joy. My husband comes from good stalk! :) 

We flew to portland the night of the 22nd. I was nervous about getting stuck in the airports but everything was great. All the travelers seemed to have made it home and the weather was nothing to worry about this year. 

I love this always...

On Christmas eve Rowan and I spent the morning on our own. We exchanged gifts and went to breakfast at our favorite little bakery.

It was crazy with Christmas shoppers picking up their orders 

It was Christmas, we went all out! 

We spent the night at my parents house and the next day cooked up a storm, ate like little piggies, caught up with family, exchanged gifts and marveled that God came as a little person to save the world.

Merry Christmas!
