The first thing people want to know about our time in Alaska was how we handled the weather. It makes me laugh to think about it because dressing for Texas weather lately is much worse than dressing for Alaska. 80 degrees in December is crazy.
Despite the warm weather, we're doing our best to be in the holiday spirit. We celebrated all weekend long.
Friday night, our Sunday School class did an "As Seen on TV" white elephant gift exchange. We almost walked away with the clapper (clap on, clap off) but it was snatched up at the last second.
Saturday afternoon we celebrated Christmas with my brother and his family since they'll be traveling Christmas Day. It was an afternoon filled with fun and lots of laughter.
On the way home, Nathanial's car kept giving us weather alerts. That was especially exciting since we had his company party that evening.
We got the worst of the weather on the way to the party. Once we were parked, it wasn't an issue. The evening was an elegant affair complete with magician.
After church on Sunday, N hung a mirror over the mantle and helped me with some other projects around the house. I love how the Christmas decor looks.
Here's our dining room. It was green last week. It looks so much better now!
Can I just keep Christmas decorations up year round?
I just got this table on Friday. I love it and the Christmas prints from a talented college friend but am still figuring out how to style them.
Even our dining table is festive!
