Our First Christmas as Husband and Wife

11 months after our wedding, we celebrated our first Christmas together. It was so perfect and we feel so blessed to have gotten to spend it with all sides of our family. We traveled to St. Louis the Friday before Christmas to see my mom's family and then Saturday we celebrated with my dad's side. We even got to stop by my grandma grave site to see her new memorial stone. Sunday, we drove back to Springfield to see John's dad's family and then finished up the celebrating with John's mom and step-dad at St. John's for Derrick's 2nd round of Chemo Treatments. While this might be our first Christmas together, it is our last one with just the two of us. Next year, little man will be joining us and we couldn't be more excited. He got lots of adorable gifts this year too!! John surprised me with a new iPhone 4Gs and Toms, he is the best! With our Christmas gifts we were also able to get a lot of the our nursery stuff too, I will post pictures soon.
