The Holidays

The holiday season was so much fun! We started it off by decorating our first Christmas tree. While we were on our honeymoon my parents cut down a tree for us so we were ready for christmas right when we got home. I loved loved loved some stockings from anthropologie but they were too expensive.... So I decided to try to make my own. I thought they turned out pretty good. I then made the merry christmas sign from $1 letters found at target! The garland was just pom poms found at Joanns. In the kitchen we created two chalkboard walls. This way I can change the drawings on the wall for every holiday. Thank goodness for Pinterest and all the cute chalkboard ideas. Once Christmas was over I changed the chalkboard to a Happy New Year sign. 

Our first Christmas was very fun and relaxing! We started it off by spending the night at Justins families house and spending Christmas morning with them. We then headed to our house to open our gifts to eachother. It was fun! Justin gave me some cute jewelry and some new scriptures with my new name on them :) It was fun to take time out of the day to have our own little christmas. We then headed to my families house to open gifts with them and have christmas dinner. There is nothing like my moms home cooking. We then got to talk to my little brother Jordan, who is serving a mission in Texas. It was so great to hear from him. He is doing great! We ended the day by playing games with the family. It was a great Christmas for the Allens!
