Happy New Year

Happy New Year dear friends! 2013 is over and so is our 3 month hiatus from the blog-o-sphere.

And to reassure you that we’re still committed to this internet friendship, we have some mouth-watering recipes that will make your friends say, “so good! what the heck is in thaaaat?!”

We spent a wonderful Thanksgiving with the whole fam at the cabin, Loon Lodge.

Cousins

Cousins, say cheeeese!

Thanksgiving Turkey

And now say, Turkey! Look at that big guy. Cooked to perfection on Mom’s Weber grill. Yum.

Family!

The happy Zimmerman clan.

Christmas Cousins

All the cousins cozy on the couch.

1st Christmas Tree

Merry Christmas! We celebrated our first Christmas in our new home, the Blue Door. We decorated the tree with ornaments that we had received as gifts over the years and for a creative touch we added pheasant feathers, real ones from Dad the hunter.

Cozy by the Tree

We loved how cozy the living room felt with all the lights.

Christmas at the Blue Door

This ornament was a gift this year. The Blue Door! Every year growing up our grandma would give us ornaments that her neighbor had hand painted. We’ve received surfing santas, basketballs, Swedish horses, but this one is our favorite. It’s so special and a great way to remember our first Christmas at the Blue Door!

God Jul Time

God Jul to all!

Festive Eats

We enjoyed festive snacks…

Holiday Indulgences

and sweet holiday treats.

Christmas Cousins

The cousins again! Merry Christmas!

Climbing Fences

And as a respite from all the parties, we enjoyed peaceful sister winter walk in our neighborhood.

Snow Angels

And made snow angels in the front yard (after shoveling 6 inches!).

Ice Beauty

We reveled in the beauty of winter. You have to take in the scenery when the temperature is -20 below zero!

Fun with Friends

We ended 2013 by celebrating the marriage of two close friends from college. It was a beautiful wedding and we couldn’t have thought of a better way to bring in the New Year than with friends, laughter, dancing, and love. Cheers to 2014!
