Holiday Pictures

Jon and I celebrated our first Christmas together in Kentucky with my side of the family. Unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of Christmas Eve or Morning because Christmas morning is when I opened my camera :). I did however get some pictures of Christmas Day, New Years Eve, and a few in between :)
The only picture of present opening that I have is of my grandparents opening the gifts Jon and I got them - Fort Myers Sweatshirts :)
Lo cleaning up the dishes from Christmas dinner - she is going to make a great wife ;)

The original Anderson's - my dad with his sis and parents

Jon and I after the festivities
Nanny and Pap with the grandkids - I'm not sure why Jon and Chad were left out of this picture

On Monday after Christmas we went shopping for bridesmaid dresses for Lo and Chad's wedding... Linds and I are both bridesmaids, so it was a ton of fun! Before trying on dresses we ate - of course - why do we always eat before trying on clothes anyways? haha! We had wonderful sushi at a cute little store on Lexington Rd.
Here is mom with Linds and Lo
And me with Linds and Lo
We tried on lots of really cute dresses - this particular one was Lindsey's FAVORITE - haha - she is going to kill me for this picture
Lo also tried on her BEAUTIFUL wedding dress. She looks like a princess in it, and I got lots of pictures - that WILL NOT be posted on here - at least not until mid October :)
Here is the soon to be Mr. and Mrs. Keeling on New Year's Eve

Linds came over on New Year's Eve, and so did the Ringo's, the grandparents, and 4 of Stew's friends. 
I have never seen the movie "Step Brothers" but Linds said we looked like the cover of the movie in this picture
I'll let you assume what you want about the kind of partying Lindsey did on New Years...

Since Lauren and Chad aren't married yet she had to settle on a kiss from Cooper at Midnight :)

We had a fantastic time in Kentucky and enjoyed being there so much! We did so much more than I have pictured! We got to spend great time with my parents - see Stew at his 1st job - Starbucks in the Kroger on Bardstown Rd. in the Highlands, Jon got to play paintball with the guys of the fam - and Lauren of course - she wouldn't miss that for the world, we had a great time hanging out with The Laing's eating at Wick's, playing Wii at their lovely home, and going on an adventure to see the movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". All in all it was a blessing to be in Louisville - and sad to leave, though we are happy to be back to life as we know it here in SUNNY southwest Florida where it was a beautiful 83 degrees today! We love all our family and friends in Louisville and can't wait to see you again.
