This week, 2 huge things happened:
1. We closed on our "old" house and our "new" house!!!
We are now proud second time homeowners of what we hope will be our "forever home". There will be lots of pictures of our new house posted in the coming weeks as we get settled in and then bring home a baby (!!??) but for now, behold the beauty that is the new house keys.
2, CHRISTMAS!!! This was the first year that Nora actually asked for things for Christmas, and between us and Santa, we really wanted her to have it all. I know in coming years, Santa and we will need to pick and choose from her list, but this Christmas felt like a "big" one for more than one reason, and since Nora is such a good girl, Santa really delivered. She had a really fun Christmas morning opening and enjoying her gifts, and for that reason, it was a lot of fun for us, too.

Christmas afternoon at Dede and Grandpa's house:
It's hard to believe that this time next year, we will have 2 little girls opening presents on Christmas morning. We're feeling very thankful as 2014 is coming to a close.
