A lot going on these days and it is making the time fly by until we meet our little princess.  Thanksgiving rolled into a babymoon which rolled into holiday celebrations.  We had a great babymoon to Arizona!  We got to see friends who moved to Phoenix, lay by the pool, watch the Seahawks beat the Bears, dink around Scottsdale and see the sunrise in Sedona.  Amazing get away and hard to believe it is our last trip we fly to before baby girl arrives.  We are already excited to take her on an adventure.  Here are a few photos from our trip.

The holidays came on full force as soon as we got home.  Starting with decorating the house and then the Nutcracker last weekend with my brother.  I love the Nutcracker and it is officially the start of the holiday season for me.  We had great seats and it is such a fun tradition.
