Baby, It's Cold Outside.

Welp, this Christmas was pretty eventful. I managed to catch my oven on fire while cooking my turkey.


Luckily, Jason put it out before things got out of hand.
The good news is my dad was already planning on cooking his own turkey, so it only turned out to be a small road bump and a great story to tell the grandkids. Bad news is that I am now scared out of my mind to use the oven again.

I'm SO happy to announce that my sister-in-law is pregnant with her second baby!! WOOHOOO!! They have an adorable family and I wish them the best through this pregnancy.


We had family over on Christmas Eve night. We watched all the classic Christmas movies while we pigged out on turkey, ham and stuffing. My dad and I drank a little bit too much eggnog and began talking about music. Here are some pictures from that night.

Once everyone left, we got Kimber ready for bed. We set out a cupcake and milk for Santa Claus and I read her Rudolph The Red-Nose Reindeer story before bed.

She was really excited that Santa was coming to bring her toys.

The next morning:

Kimber was blessed with a LOT of toys this year. All together, she got 24 presents. This was a great Christmas, but I'm sure glad it's over.


  1. i set fire to my stove a few years ago. TERRIFYING! i immediately ran from the kitchen. thankfully my mother took control of the situation and put it out. so scary though.

    btw, i LOVE your make up. so pretty! :]

  2. I felt like a complete failure. My first turkey went up in flames...literally. It was the scariest thing ever. My heart was racing...and THANKS! :)

  3. aww.....if it makes you feel better, i did the same a few months ago. the scary thing was, i was home alone! i learned how to use a fire extinguisher FAST.

    all in all, it sounds like you had a wonderful holiday despite the fire! merry (late) christmas! :)
