For Christmas Eve service we went to my parents church on the 23rd. Then on actual Christmas Eve Chris's mom and sister arrived. They stayed with us the rest of the week. It was so great to be with the whole family :)


I got so behind with my blogging because of how busy this past month has been. So here is an explosion of posts from the last month :)

First: on December 14th my parents came down for my pinning ceremony. It was so amazing and as my mom noticed, I got choked up ;) it felt so official to finally say that nursing pledge!!

Lemon poppyseed muffins

I am on a baking kick and whipped out my Cheeseboard cookbook during my last week off. Today I made lemon poppyseed muffins and Challah bread. The bread is in the oven and the muffins.... Are literally the best muffins ever :) way too delicious
