‘Tis the Season!

This is a personal December (which is a wonderful month) blog post filled with what we’ve been up to in the past weeks.

It’s not a proper Christmas in the Spurrier-Villarreal household without The Fleet! The fleet is what Nick calls his arsenal of noise making, light-up, nerdy ornaments from Star Trek and Star Wars.

And in honor of the recent release of the Hobbit and Tolkien in general, Gandalf is our tree topper.

We have figured out the secret to convincing our cats to not destroy the tree: a fluffy blanket around the tree base does a great job of distracting them into sleeping on it (rather than knocking all of the ornaments off or trying to eat them). And they just look so darn cute when they’re next to the tree.

Also, I should congratulate the lovely Rachel Spurrier for graduating from TCU with honors! I was so happy to snap a few family photos before the ceremony.

What is this thing called snow? As a native Texan, I’m unfamiliar with the term…

You can never be too old for LEGOs. Especially if they’re Hobbit LEGOS.

It’s been a great couple of weeks! Feel free to “like” my facebook page to see my most recent work! I’m also working on the blog post of Melissa and Chad’s wedding, so expect that in the coming days!

I hope everyone is having a very happy holiday season; stay warm and dry out there y’all!
