embrace the camera

Ryann and I spent the past weekend, where else, at Grammy and Papa's house.  Chris's schedule tends to blow, but at least for the most part I have some awesome (and incredibly helpful!) parents that take care of and spoil us like no one else can.  Overall the weekend was lots of fun, minus the part where Ryann was sick, again.  I feel like she is always sick on the weekends.  I'm guessing it is because she goes to MDO on Thursdays and then starts feeling crummy by Saturday or Sunday.  But she also goes to the gym so who knows...

Sunday morning started off with a fairly gorgeous sunrise.  These are pretty much straight out of the camera.  Yes, the sunrise did look that amazing!

Us girls had a good time baking and decorating sugar cookies.  Ryann was a crazy woman with the sprinkles sometimes!  There was colored sugar everywhere.  But we were happy :o).

Monday was my Dad's birthday, and Chris's day off, so he came over to hang out and have a birthday dinner with us.  We put together a gingerbread house (note to self, read instructions before starting a project :o), had a delicious dinner, and opened some Christmas presents so they didn't all have to travel with us.  Overall another great day!

It was a fun filled weekend, and now I can't wait for Christmas this weekend!  If only I could motivate myself to make a dent in my to-do list...
