Christmas day at the Merkleys.
The holidays come and go so fast, but I still wanted to post some pictures of that wonderful time of the year. Christmas is one of my favorite holidays and I love that we get to spend so much time with family and friends. It was also so wonderful having Christmas with Lily. She really didn't know what the heck was going on, but it was still so much fun to celebrate with her. It was also nice to have Lorin around more since he had over a month off from school. Now, it's back to the grind and he's back at ASU. We keep reminding ourselves that he only has a few semesters left (thank goodness!)
