This is a random gatherings of our Christmas of 2011. We were very fortunate to have a great Christmas and I can truly vouch for how blessed our family is. 
Snuggies for both Scott and I from his brother Mike. They are actually quite cozy and convenient. We leave them on our sofa for some serious TV/movie watching
Also, Mike gave Scottie a "Shake" apparently you can get toned or something just by shaking this....hmm... gotta love "AS SEEN ON TV" 
Bowling has become Scottie's newest recreational sport of 2011. These are shoe covers so in between his bowls he can slip these on and not damage his shoes.  
Our master bath has been sooooo crazy with all my hair, nail, skin...stuff so I was super stoked when I found out he bought me some organizers for Christmas. Yeah! 
one year Scott individually wrapped two pairs of socks for me for Christmas. I decided this year (3 years later) that I would return the lovely favor with 12 individually wrapped socks...so 6 pairs! hehehe
I have circulation problems among other things and my arms straight up fall asleep during the night. So this pillow has been great and it literally puts my neck in a position to assist my body to have a better night's rest.
And lastly one of our many self-portrait Christmas photos!
 
Scottie and I FINALLY hit our 5 year anniversary last month (Dec 15). It was awesome he took Thurs and Friday off and we spent the weekend in downtown Dallas at a hotel we would in any normal circumstance we would be found dead paying for such an expensive room. But hey! After 5 years of marriage - we're worth the splurge!
yes, we thought about going out to eat the first night but decided that we didn't want all the people or to get dressed up all fancy (just not our style) so we ordered in!
Check out the little condiments that come on the the room service tray! How adorable! Give thanks to my lovely new camera for these crystal clear pics ;)

The last two weeks have been kinda chaotic! Last minute our family decided it would be in the best interest of bringing my younger sister BreeAnna to come live with us. So last weekend we packed up the car after Scott got off and drove 20hrs straight to Yuma, slept, picked up my sister and than drove 20hrs back. All this past week we were recovering from the drive...kind of under estimate how much a long road trip like that takes a toll on the body.

So Bree is here. Today starts week 2 and I hope to continue to see small victories that we saw last week. She by no means is an angel neither is she mistake-free...but then again, who is? Progress is the main focus and the piece of work she is, any progress is good.
