Back in the STL

We were able to go home for the holidays! it was so good to be back with family and's some pics:

The family getting to open some gifts:

Our good friend Tommy had a concert at Mississippi Nights with his band Marquette Weekend while we were home:

New Year's Eve we hung out with my family and brought the new year in at a bowling was fun, but I was pooped when the clock struck 12. I feel like I'm getting old already!

Got to hang out with our good friends Brennan and Nat....they're engaged and will be getting married on June 23rd. So exctied for them! We went ice skating at Steinberg down at Forest Park:
Emily came in town to visit for an afternoon! I love you EM!!!

Christmas at Pismo

Yep...we spent our first Christmas on the beach, Pismo Beach to be exact. It was relaxing and fun, but it didn't feel like Christmas without family. We got to go home on the 27th of Dec. though so we had something to look forward to. We stayed in a little cottage inn right next to the ocean. It was real cute, had a great breakfast buffet, and there was a fireplace in our room too!
I love the beach and will def. miss it when we move to Louisville! In the meantime I'll take advantage of every time I talk Braden into taking me to the beach...any beach. : )
