The weekend before Christmas we attended the Holiday Lighted Boat Parade which goes through the channels of downtown Tampa.  It was actually pretty cool!  I cannot wait to take Baby D next year!

I know this post is a little late, Husband & I (and some friends and our family) have been out of the country for my THIRTIETH birthday this past week, so blogging was definitely not my number one priority.  But even though the holiday season has come and gone, the happiness from spending quality time with our families is still lingering.  We had so much fun just laughing, exchanging thoughtful and humorous gifts, and eating tons of homemade goodness!  Feeling super blessed to be surrounded by so much love!  We hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!
