christmas 2012

our first christmas married was amazing!
we are so lucky we got to come home and celebrate with family..
after a fun christmas eve, we stayed at chase's parents house and woke up
christmas morning to go see his nieces & nephews open their gifts..
then we came back to their house to have a breakfast and open gifts.
later we headed to my house and had the best christmas dinner 
with dessert, games, a movie, and a fire while the snow fell. it was perfect!
^^ my street on christmas morning ^^
^^ christmas breakfast with chase's family ^^
^^ all of chase's presents for me...lucky wifey! ^^
all ready for christmas dinner with my family!
 we had amazing beef tenderloin with gorgonzola bernaise sauce..
to die for! we also had salad, twice-baked potatoes, asparagus, homeade
rolls, and chocolate souffl├ęs to finish off the best meal.
^^ dunn fam ^^
the littles make christmas even more fun!
love our nieces & nephews.
^^ the boys with their new polo shirts/sweaters ^^
^^ one of my parents' amazing gifts to us..we are staying in that amazing house
in laguna beach in april, and they are all coming to SF for fleet week! can't wait! ^^
^^ we had to get this sign for my mom since that is basically her motto ^^
is it obvious that i like polka dots?
^^ my mom got her dream lululemon jacket from my cute dad..she loved it!
..and somehow i ended up with one too..spoiled. we love being twinners! ^^
chase spoiled me this year with clothes, an amazing new canon camera
and lens, and a new iphone!!! i gave him a new embroidered robe, a laptop case,
a book of our 2012 year, and a fun trip to the coast to stay in a lighthouse 
with our friends back in CA!! it was fun to spoil each other our first christmas.
this is the little getaway we are going on
with our best couple friends in CA!
 last but not least, we were so excited to give my parents this gift we had worked on for a while..we recreated a classic picture of them in SF when they were young, and framed them next to each other! needless to say, they loved it!
it was so fun to give them a meaningful gift..that is the best part of christmas!
we loved our first christmas and can't wait for the new year!

  13. Just found your blog (can't quite remember how, lol). And I'm already in love after reading you two were a Chi Omega and a Sigma Chi in were my boss and his wife. I was sorority girl as well and loved every moment of the time. I think I eventually realized that the life that came along with that didn't quite go with my love for Christ so one had to go and Christ won that battle, lol. I'm a new follower and I look forward to reading more!
