So Yeah.....and My Christmas Present

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I didn't mean to take such a long blogging break! The husband and I both have this week off of work...and when you add in Christmas fun plus both of us being sick, not much blogging happens. The good news is the husband is starting to feel better. The bad news is I'm starting to feel worse.

Anyway, I thought I would share some of our Christmas with you! On Christmas Eve I spent most of the day feeling sick and watching movies on the couch. Luckily my mom saved the day by bringing over the most delicious meal so that this sick girl didn't have to cook. We ended up opening presents that night. Want to see my favorite gift? Be prepared for cuteness beyond words. 

 Meet Miss Sophie! That's right...the husband got me a kitten for Christmas! She is beyond adorable and the sweetest kitten we've ever had. She starts purring whenever you talk to her or look at her. We have been talking about getting a friend for Henry for awhile and after we met her it just felt right.

On Christmas day we went to my in-laws house for the day and had a great time!

Wrigley had fun too....despite looking terrified in this photo. Unfortunately my camera died right after taking this.

For dessert I made a Christmas trifle.....it turned out more like a trifle that got slimmed. I called it the Grinch Stole Christmas trifle. It was yummy.

And now, some more cuteness. Sophie looks so big here...but really she is tiny.

It's impossible to get her to sit still for a photo....she just wants to love on you instead. Best Christmas gift ever....my husband knows me so well!

Merry Christmas from our house! And Happy New Year!

**Edited to add: For those of you who've asked, the garland the husband and I are standing in front of is actually two skinny Christmas trees my father-in-law tied together at the top!

Aww! Sweet baby kitten!! that's awesome!!

Now, I'm looking at the pics from your in-laws -- are those two trees tied together to create an archway? A suspended garland? I'm intrigued - but I like they like Christmas trees! So happy!

You look great despite feeling puny on Christmas Eve!!

Well I can certainly see why this Christmas was so special! The gift of a precious little kitten to cuddle up to when you aren't feeling well? The best! Sophie is adorable and Wrigley looked mighty cute too. I sure miss my two orange tabbies...hope everyone is getting along well.
