Back to December… it’s Christmas!

Well girls, i am still definitely coming down from my Carrie high, but I haven’t really had time to stop all weekend! I had Carrie on Thursday, and then three Christmas parties this weekend! I am glad that I was so busy, because having so much fun kept my mind off the fact that this is the day I got engaged last year. Very strange feeling. I realized today just exactly how much can change in one year. I am in a good, actually great place right now and I am so thankful for the great weekend I had, and the the great friends I spent the weekend with. I am pretty much exhausted at this point, so I will just post some pics for ya from Christmas partypalooza 2k10.
Friday night was big sissy’s annual Christmas party. It is pretty much baller and SO much fun!! Love you Billie Jo!

Big sissy and some of her 12 kids hahaha.

Laurel’s blingin’ shoes! I so want them!

big bro Brett and me 🙂

Saturday night we had two Christmas parties to go to. This would be the night where I took a pretty legit fall on the ice, and cut up my foot and bruised my tail. It was graceful.

Pretty sissy and her boyfriend Matty!

Things got pretty crazy as usual… SO SO fun!

And I thought y’all might like to see big sissy’s Christmas decor. it is beyond gorgeous, and I LOVE when her house is decorated for the holidays!

The Makers Mark tree in the Bourbon room (it’s hard to see the mini makers bottles)

The playroom tree! Precious!

The babies tree…

Laurel’s tree, love this one!
All in all a FANTASTIC weekend. I wish I had half the energy it takes to do this decorating job, haha. I thought I did alright getting ONE tree up. bahahah.
PS I also want to give a special shout out to one of my best friends and roomie LEAH and congratulate her on her engagement!! Leah got engaged today, and while it has been a bittersweet day for me I am SO SO happy for her. She is marrying her best friend, and an amazing guy. Jed-we are all so happy that you fell in love with our sweet girl. I couldn’t be happier for you two. I know you both will have an amazing life together.
