Christmas + Marriage Part II

Here are a few of the photos taken at Jeremy's parents on Christmas evening :-)

We were all hungry from eating Christmas breakfast early, and having to wait for dinner to be ready.... solution? Summer sausage, cheese, mustard, crackers and jam! MMMM!

Christmas + Marriage

I feel incredibly blessed that mine and Jeremy's families live about 20 minuets apart... we don't have to travel hours to see everyone, which is fantastic!

We spent Christmas morning with my family, eating breakfast and opening gifts. Then, we headed over to his parents house for dinner and more gifts!

Here's a few from my dad's house!

Thanksgiving + Nieces

Thanksgiving.... what a wonderful time of year....

A long weekend
Football
Turkey
Family
Friends
My birthday

and
.... BBQ!

Our traditional Thanksgiving was spent with Jeremy's family, and the food was great, but the new addition to the family was the biggest hit! Meet Emma Rae Chandler Riggs, born November 4th to my sister-in-law, Megan, and her hubby, Adam.

Next was Friday- My dad hosts the annual BBQ on Friday after Thanksgiving. He feeds anyone who shows up- hunters, family, friends, even his hay customers! My nieces, Olivia and Caroline wanted to climb on the tip top of the hay, so Grandpa Wolfpack (as he's referred to) tossed them up there!

Then... it's my birthday! And we always celebrate with a cake at the BBQ. It's one of my favorite things about the whole weekend! :-)
