blake and i spent our first christmas in portland this year and i must admit it was kind of nice being on our own. we had super yummy dinner at hotel in downtown portland and while we were eating we got to look out the window at the snow falling! a white christmas! we also go to see a performance of the nutcracker on christmas eve and that is always fun.
we didn't get a tree this year so here is a picture of the little christmas decorating that we did. blake sure is a funny one, he honestly will stand in front of the fire and look at the decorations while sipping on a glass of eggnog. seriously, who likes eggnog? gross!!! i love christmas ornaments so much! we have made a point to buy an ornament when we go out of town somewhere and it is was so fun to look at all of them and talk about our trips together when we were taking them out. we got the little reindeer that is in the front for our 1st christmas in oregon and i just think it is so dang cute.
(just had to include this picture of this snowman i saw with amy this week...check out the nice contoured booty. people sure get creative with their snow people!)
