Our First Christmas!! :)

Derek and I had our 1st Christmas today!! :) It was such a blast getting out of bed in our PJ's and opening the gifts that we had for one another. So...the pictures at the beginning are not so becoming because we literally did not get ready at all. We got out of bed and started taking pictures. Those are the best later down the road though!! They are a real laugh though! :-)







We also had some special decorations! :)




Jacob and Patrick came over to our apartment and set up this Reindeer on Christmas Eve. Derek's mom and Grandma mailed it to my parents house so that we could surprise Derek. This reindeer is very special to his family and is now very special to OUR family!! :)



Christmas with the Goetzes!! :)


Mom got an Elmo from Dad that says "I love you" and blows kisses. It is was really cute.




Christmas with the Goetze/ Broughton!! :)



Jacob and Tyler were very tired!! :)



Our gifts!!


This is a hat that B bought for Derek. My dad has one similar at the Farm and Derek really liked it last time we were there. I think he looks mighty handsome myself! :) I might be a little bias though!!


We could not have asked for a better 1st Christmas!!

We really missed the Groseclose/Keenes!! We love you all and miss you lots!!
