Joint Presents

This Christmas was truly wonderful! It has been one of my favorites!

First of all, it snowed! Although it put a damper on some plans...we made plans of our own and ended up having a GREAT time!

Second, I love spending quality time with family and friends! It's always fun to show off your ring and relive your engagement for people who haven't heard the story yet!

Third, PRESENTS! I literally got everything I wanted including a few joint presents for me and David.

This was a new thing for us....

It was interesting....I feel like joint presents=official couple.

Some of the joint presents we recieved:

-Beautiful drinking glasses with "B"s on them! We love them!
-A four piece luggage set! Bring on the honeymoon!
-Silver Dollar City Passes for next year! Continuing the family tradition...ahhh...
-The toastiest blanket ever!
-And a few more...

I was so excited about opening our presents together! I can't wait for our wedding showers now! Is that selfish?.....nope.

Here are some Christmas Highlights!....

These are the mounds of presents that awaited me when I arrived at David's house for our Christmas celebration!

These were our appetizers before dinner! Black olives (my favorite) and shrimp cocktail. Please notice how David made the shrimp into little hearts. Presh.

Our dinner set up. So romantic. He's great.

My present for him!

I am spoiled.
It's ok though...because next year we will be a poor married couple so we had to go all out!

Classic Christmas fireplace picture. Family fav.

Also...we officially asked our flowergirl to be in our wedding!
Her name is Alyssa, she is three years old, and she is my adorable baby cousin.
I made her a card in the shape of a dress and attached a pin that says "I'm the flowergirl" on it. I gave it to her as a Christmas present and needless to say my aunt was thrilled and almost started bawling! It was precious.

Alyssa on the other hand was not too thrillled....
That is until we told her that she would get a princess dress and flowers.
On the bright side, she loved the pin and she wouldn't take it off.

Fact: I will have the cutest little flower girl in history.
