The Start of Something New

Child size antique table I received as a Christmas gift!
Perfect for my two new additions!

It had been a real treat this year seeing two families come together as one! We ended the year making gingerbread houses all together as one big group! :) It was a lot of fun watching the older kids help the little ones. :)

Josh & Jillian's house.

Josh was good with a pastry bag! lol

love the look on Jillian's face here

With her finished project :)

Sophi & Dempsey

Garrik with his Zombie house!

My oldest son ...Gage...I was surprised he joined in AND smiled :)

Dempsey with 2 thumbs up for her & Sophi's joint project!
Christmas was a terrific time this year! We had 5 kids to buy for and they were ALL happy and appreciative! My daughter even made the statement that this had been a "Nice Christmas". :) It was even more fun when the SNOW came Dec. 26th!

Me & Josh on Christmas Day 2012

Outside all bundled up after the big snow!!

Our Christmas gift to each other was a trip to see our Ravens play some football!! So off to Cincinnati on Dec. 29th!! The game was set for Dec. 30th but we left a night early. The night we arrived Josh was adamant on taking a carriage ride through the city. Something we had discussed doing before we left. I said that it would be so romantic if it were snowing. It just happen to be snowing Dec. 29th in Cincinnati, so we drove to the city. Little did I know that this was about to be the first and BEST carriage ride I would EVER take.....because he proposed! TOTAL SURPRISE!! :)

I, of course, said YES!!! :)

At the game in our Ravens gear!

Ray Rice & Ray Lewis...if you don't know Ray Lewis he is a VERY inspirational man!

Our fave player Ray Rice! He smiled for me! :)

Here we are outisde the Newport Levee....cold ....brrrr!

At the Funny Bone on New Year's Eve!!!
