Merry Christmas! (And our 2018 Christmas Card)

Merry Merry Christmas!!!
I hope you are all having a very happy holiday today.
Today I'm sharing our Christmas card! You can only imagine how excited I was to do Christmas cards this year with our new little baby.
I had so many visions in my mind on making it so cute and perfect. But guess what.... these first 3 months of mommy-hood are NOT easy. haha I could barely find the time to shower, let alone plan a cute Christmas photo-shoot.
I finally settled with the idea of going to a cute Christmas Tree farm next to our house. Can I call it a farm? It's really just an open field where Christmas trees are brought in. But they make it look super cute.
We went one cold winter night in November, dressed Ryenn up, Will and I tried to look festive and we met our two friends Steph and Matt there to take the photos for us.
As I arrived, I soon realized we were not the only ones with this genius idea to take Christmas photos there, and I felt much better seeing photo-shoots happening all around us! haha

We quickly took Ryenn out of her car seat...posed with her as best we could... and took some super fun but quick photos.

I really didn't want her to get too cold so I was rushing as fast as I could.
Luckily, we did get some cute ones and I picked this one to be our Christmas card! Ryenn is only about 7-8 weeks here. So so cute!!!

Here are some other photos from that night if you want to check them out!

This Christmas we are up in California spending the weekend with Will's side of the family. We did Christmas here in Reno a few days ago with my family. Which was a lot of fun. We pretended it was Christmas morning, and everyone came over to our new house, and we opened gifts, played Christmas music, and made a yummy breakfast casserole. It was a nice faux Christmas!

I am happy to be here now with Will's family just enjoying our first Christmas holiday with Ryenn. Everything feels a bit more special and exciting with her now. I love it!
