In addition to Baby O arriving on the first of December, my mother-in-law was here for the entire month to help out and she flew back home on Sunday. We had friends over for a potluck holiday dinner, showed our visiting guests around Denver, and, celebrated Christmas in our own home. I think it's a holiday we'll be talking about for a long time.
I won't lie, there were moments where I wanted my house back all to myself, but now that the fun is over and our house is quiet again, I know I'll be looking at the photos I took over the last month and be wishing that I could do it all over again.
We got some good snow throughout December!
Most of the time, the kitchen was in some state of mess. But somehow, miraculously, every night, the kitchen was cleaned up and spotless (no picture of that, but trust me, it was clean every night).
Other parts of the house were very "lived" in. Can you count the number of baby items in this room alone?
And we started new traditions. Our first gingerbread house. Ever.
