Company for Christmas

I was a little delayed in uploading the final four images of the series due to having company for the holiday, but here they are now (along with a couple bonus recipe links).

The first night they were here, we made cheesy chicken wild rice casserole (recipe from Picky Palate), one of my favorites.

On Sunday, day 23, we made Spritz cookies. We made traditional almond flavor and a different raspberry gelatin recipe.

Christmas Eve we opened gifts and celebrated with my parents. Look at all those presents under our tree!

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

You might remember from our Save the Date cards that our reception was a game theme. So I designed the invitations to look like playing cards.


The main part of the invitation features the King and Queen of hearts. I found some text online that I liked and edited it a bit to fit our event. Here's what the main invitation final product looked like:

Since we also needed to include the addresses for the church, reception, and hotel, I made an Ace of hearts card, too. (Get it? 'A' for address?)

I also wanted to include a map since we'd have a lot of out of town guests. I know most people have a GPS these days, but it just seemed like a good idea. For the map, I saved a screenshot of the area in Google Maps, then traced over the lines I wanted in Photoshop Elemen…

Mommy work.
Daddy work.
Ru work.

One of the most common refrains around here lately. That and

Mommy nap.
Daddy nap. 

Note, Ru doesn't nap.
