I haven't posted a blog in almost 4 months...major fail on my part. Trust me, I had all the intentions to blog over the holidays but time just got away from me. Needless to say, we have been extremely busy in every aspect of our lives. I could probably write a short-fiction novel talking about what we've been up but it's so much more fun to show it through pictures:
What we've been up to:
|The Blake's were married on November 4th! Greg was a groomsmen in the wedding and had a blast. |
Who will ever forget Father Andy?!
|Love this picture of the couple :)|
|Greg's 25th Birthday was November 8th and we celebrated with our typical happy hour at Old Chicago. What started as a few beers ended with nachos, pizzas, shots and..... |
|an impromptu game night at our new place!|
|I also gave Greg a guitar for his birthday. As you can tell by the photo, he was pretty stoked. He is learning a few tunes AND attempting to sing along to them. I even found a few lyrics he wrote one day!|
|Thanksgiving in Tulsa - the weather was unbelievably beautiful. This was my "my normal clothes barely fit but I'm not ready to wear maternity clothes" stage.|
|The Haus ladies on Turkey Day!|
|Our tradition - Greg putting the star on top of the Christmas tree. With our cathedral ceilings in the living room, I am hoping to get a big, full tree for next year :)|
|Christmas at the Richter's! Plenty for gifts for all!|
|Every year mom & dad give us an ornament - this year Jon got the National Lampoon's one. Classic.|
|New stockings to hang over our fireplace!|
|Everyone in their 'special spots'. I just like how my dad is wearing a scarf in this picture and Charlie is enjoying his special treat from Greg & I.|
|The Haus' come for New Years! Everyone was excited to see how much my belly |
had grown since Thanksgiving.
|The trip wouldn't be complete without playing some board games. Greg, of course, is trying to explain |
the rules to everyone!
|This is how the Haus boys rang in the new year - sitting in our hot tub with cigars and beer in hand. |
Boys will be boys!
| Greg (with the help of his friend, Cole) painted the kitchen green AND the upstairs bathroom |
a gray-ish neutral color.
|Daddy is hanging baby's poms & pendants over her crib. I found a good tutorial on Pinterest for making the poms. They sure took a lot of time. My mom and I spent an entire night making just 2 of them.|
