We're Here!: Recap of Christmas (2 Months Late! Ha!)

We're here! We're here! We've made it into the blogging world! I'm excited to have a new hobby and alternative to journaling. Kendall is supportive and warning me to always post more pictures than words so it's interesting.

Thought I'd share a short recap of Christmas..... a holy two-for-one celebration. I've always thought Christmas should be honored more than one measly day a year, and now being married gave me TWO WHOLE DAYS to celebrate---one with my family and one with my new family (Kendall's family).

Please forgive the photo quality (And family, please forgive the lack of photos. I had many more but am in the middle of a small technical crisis which is making the transfer of my phone photos to the computer impossible...or else many more of you would have been pictured). Someday I'll dig out that fatty smart phone instruction manual and learn how to take non-fuzzy pics. 'Til then, enjoy the happy, dreamlike state of these magical pictures ;)

 Dozens of cookies made for our ward's Christmas Primary Activity

  1. Welcome to the blogging world!!! Love your cute apartment and your 1st tree. Glad things are going well! And I love the title to your blog, it's so you & Kendall!

  2. I think your blog title might be the most amazing thing ever :)

  3. I'm glad that you have a blog. Now I can see what you are up to!

  4. Welcome to the Blogosphere! Count me as one of your devoted blog-followers.

  5. Love it!! This makes me so happy, and those cookies are so cute! How did you pipe the faces? They are quite cheery.

  6. Yay for blogging! I've been blogging for 6 years now. Love it! By the way, I hope we get to meet one day! Kendall (and that whole Brady clan) are so dear to me. Easily some of my most favorite people ever. I don't feel worthy to be so closely related to them!

  7. Thanks everyone for your extremely sweet comments. Each one made me smile and I got so excited that you took the time to read this. Love you all :)

    Trisha- Thank you! :) After being stumped coming up with a name title, Kendall suggested "Disgustingly Happy" haha

    Lakin- Thank you! Your blog title is actually my all-time favorite :)

    Melissa- Ditto! I miss you, cuz!

    Lindsay- Thanks! :) I disgustingly love you! :)

    Brenda- Thanks! Count me as one of yours....especially now that I know how to "follow" you now! haha. Thanks for the pointers!

    Danielle- Thank you highly-professional-blogging friend! Our primary president let me borrow her reusable piping bags and tips which made all of the difference since there were so many to decorate. I've piped cookies before with a makeshift bag made out of a ziploc baggie and a cheap plastic decorating tip....but it was pretty messy :S

    Becca- Oooooo....6 years?! That's inspiring! I hope we can meet too! Your little family is adorable! I agree, we're lucky to be related to those Bradys :)
