2011–You were an INCREDIBLE year.

It’s been far too long since I have updated the blog! Life has been a whirlwind, and minus one minor freak out–it’s been a pretty grand whirlwind!

Ryan had Orthagnathic surgery early in December, ad it was quite the experience. I dont know if any of you have ever had to stay over night in the hospital or care for someone in a hospital, but for me, this was a first. I was SHOCKED to say the least. We had to share a room with another patient, an older man who broke all of his ribs, and there was NO WHERE for me to sleep. Night 1 i slept in a chair on the side of Ryan’s bed, and it was completely TERRIBLE. Night 2, my father-in-law found this amazing chair that converted into a little bed and i slept there. I slept SO hard that Ryan couldnt even wake me up in the middle of the night when he needed me (whoops).


Needless to say, i survived and i feel like a total grown-up. I was really freaked out the first night and may have even cried a little, but night 2 i pulled it together. Here are some photos from the hospital. None of Ryan’s face. It was pretty sad, but he looks SO GOOD now. His mouth is still rubber-banded shut, and he has a plastic splint, but he is doing great!!

NetFlix & the iPad were our BFFs

Found this cute Sock Monkey for Ry while he slept. ❤ Him

Here are some Christmas Pics. We had the best first Christmas @ Napa. We had a Tacky Sweater Party/White Elephant Party that was REALLY fun. We were surrounded by all of our friends and it was the most incredible party! We really loved it. 
Christmas Eve=Eve we spent with my parents and Ryan’s Parents and our good friend Stacy McVane. We all drank hot cocoa and snuggled. It was a lot of fun!! Christmas Eve was spent making a gingerbread house and watching A Christmas Story, one of my favorite Christmas movies ever, and Christmas day, Ryans cousins came over, and we all had a great day playing games and laughing.
