The most exciting part of this Christmas season has been the new life that has joined us, not a baby, not yet, but the addition of our doggy Elli-Mae Cappel! We got her just one week before Christmas, and though she has given us a fair dose of responsibility she is a joy! She fits in wonderful with Joshua and I, enjoying her play time but truly enjoying sitting and just being. She brings life and movement to our apartment and has helped us meet our neighbors through her barking (oh I'll explain later, maybe)! Overall she really is a joy!
Starting on Christmas Eve, my dad and step-mom came over and we enjoyed some delicious stuffed shells in lou of your traditional Christmas dinner. We enjoyed exchanging gifts and were very spoiled this year! While over, I shared #grumpycat with him, and we got caught up watching funny animal youtube videos! I have never seen my dad laugh so hard. It's a joy to see him enjoy himself!

A LOT of decorating for Christmas has gone on, and truly I'm so blessed to have a place to finally put up all my decorations!!
Tomorrow, the rest of the Cappel Clan will be joining us over Josh's birthday! I'm going to fix a taco bar for them on Saturday, and we're just going to enjoy their company!
