Merry Christmas Eve!

We've been busy (in the best kind of way!) this past week preparing for Christmas and going to lots of Holiday parties. Last night Amanda and Torun hosted a Norwegian Christmas party and Torun made some traditional Norwegian Christmas food- rice porridge and lots of salty meats, potatoes and butter! We also got to see some friends of ours, Yogi and Liz, who are due with their second baby TODAY! Her first baby, Maya, was three weeks early and her labor was only three hours so she's pretty anxious to see how different this delivery will be.

We'll be headed to the LeVett's (Amanda's family) tonight for Christmas Eve dinner. We all decided we are still turkeyed-out from Thanksgiving so Karen (Amanda's mom) is making Mexican food. Yum! We'll be spending Christmas day at our house with my mom and sister.

Here are some pictures from the past few days...

Our newest ornament!

Riley really knows how to nap.

Some of the sugar cookies we took to Amanda and Torun's party.

I felt crafty the other day and spruced up some of Grayson's plain white onesies- all it took was some fabric paint and stamps!

The shelves we ordered for his room arrived last week and are finally up- they look great! I'll post some more pictures after Christmas.

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas with family and friends- and to all of you out there in Oklahoma, I hope you get to spend some good time by the fireplace and don't have to venture out in the snow!
