December 2009

Merry Chirstmas!

The Christmas Season at the Ryan household was full of laughter, love, stress, happiness and togetherness! I had so much fun decorating our new house for Christmas this year! Just a warning, but this post is going to be a BIG ONE!

With a family as big as ours, I have alot to say! So, settle in with some hot chocolate and get ready to get caught up with our family.

This year it was Miss Courtney's turn to put the angel on the tree. The look on Bill's face in this picture is priceless. Thank you honey for always lifting our children up...in more ways than one.

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care....(Ok, Ok...the gas fireplace) Ha ha

Our Chirstmas table....All we need now is family to fill the seats!

Our family room....Yes, we decorated Joey's kennel. Overboard? We think not!

Bill, Allie and I went to a Christmas party over at our friends BK's house. It was so nice to see her! She just moved back to Oregon from Los Angeles. I am so thankful that I have such a good friend that lives so close to me now! Thanks for a fun night BK!

Allie and Bill all dressed up for the party! It's been so wonderful having Allie home from college for the holidays.

The Best Christmas Present Ever = New curtains for my kitchen! Thanks Mom! I love my new curtains! They give my kitchen exactly the look I am going for! You're the best!


We had a wonderful night over at my in-laws house with Wayne and Jaylin, Parker and Piper. I made a Chicken Tortilla Soup, and we had a Clam Chowder and a wonderful salad. After dinner, we met up with Taylor, Jalen & Courtney and we went to the 11pm Christmas Eve service at church. It was so wonderful to be there as a family and sing carols and hear the true meaning of Christmas! Happy Birthday Jesus!

1/2 of our family on Christmas Eve. Taylor, Jalen and Courtney spent the night with their Dad.


Mom, Papa, Stacy & Tyler came over for breakfast! I made an overnight blueberry french toast and some sausage! It was wonderful!!

Christmas morning with the stockings!

I baked so much this year! This is our treat table for Christmas Day! WOW!!!


Jalen, Allie and Courtney on Christmas night!

On Christmas night, we had my Aunt Patti come over with with cousins and their children! They traveled here from Alaska and Los Angeles...and it was wonderful to have everyone together. The kids had a great time playing together! My house was busting at the seams... just the way that it should at Christmas! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful family!

Enjoying dinner and everyone's company

Me and Allie on Christmas night!

With 2010 just around the corner, we wish all of our friends and family a year full of happiness, love and peace.

Yes, it's true....Joey really is "Santa's Favorite"!
