You may have noticed that I took a little break from the blog in the past week or so. Here is a little of what we have been up to...
Rem protecting the presents….
Celebrating my birthday on my birthday with my parents. It's my Mom's favorite thing. She just happened to pick up my favorite cake from my favorite bakery. She is just the best. Always making me feel so special on my birthday since it is so close to Christmas. December 23rd to be exact :)
Christmas at the Schwartzes (yes, that is how you make our last name plural, I had to look it up for Christmas cards), started off by Chris (my brother-in-law) taking my crown as the pickle finder. Does anyone else have this German tradition? A few years ago I bought a pickle ornament for my in-laws to start the tradition in their family as well. The host hides the pickle ornament in the tree and whomever finds it has good luck for the next year. I won last year and Chris won this year…I'm coming for you buddy!
My sister (in-law) and her little puppy Dash.
Then to my parents for dinner. How cute are these napkins?
