2013: Year of the stomach flu. 2014: Another year of the flu! :) 2015: I’m crossing my fingers for you! Ellie and I spent our entire Christmas break with Influenza A, yuck! But it still beat the stomach flu epidemic of Christmas 2013. That was the worst!

My mom slaved over a beautiful and delicious Christmas Eve dinner. Ellie and I were feeling a little better that night and actually ate at the table! (after a week of hanging out on the couch :)

I won this darling teepee at an event a few months ago and it made for a cute Christmas gift. Still working on finding the perfect spot for it in our house, but man it’s adorable.

A Canadian beanie from our favorite missionary! Best part of Christmas was skying with my brother in Canada. (5 more months until he’s home!!)

The aftermath. :) Minus that part about being sick for 9+ days, it was a Christmas for the books!
