This year we had a wonderful Christmas! Chris made a delightful Dinner on Christmas Eve. We had a brown sugar and clove roasted Ham, Some scalloped potatoes, some brussel sprout hash with caramelized onions, some delicious rosemary, sage and thyme stuffing, and some homemade squash soup it was so delightful. To top it off we had sparkling Cranberry juice and Missoni helped set the table. She actually did it all by herself. She is such a big helper, it is no surprise Santa brought both girls such nice presents, since they are such good girls.
This was Zeze and Soni all ready for church the morning after Christmas. What little dolls!

We went to Orlando Temple!
Chris and I were sealed to eachother and then to Missoni in the Orlando Temple. I have no words to describe the wonders of the temple and how we felt on this day. They brought Missoni in to the sealing room in her white dress and the entire room burst into tears. Even people who had come into view the sealing that didn't know us were crying. It was amazing. My mom and dad were there, Chris' bro, Les and his wife Kim, and Tiff and Brock. It was a very special day. I love my family so much and so grateful for the great sealing power of the temple.
Boy meets girl in South Florida!
This is the Thompson Family love story. We should have started our blog a long time ago. So to make up for it, I am going to start back to the time I met Chris and move forward to now! Enjoy reading about our love story and how we are now doing as we make the LONG journey through Law School in Syracuse, New York! We now have a wonderful, beautiful busy 18 month old. We love her and she is the light of our lives!
We had a wonderful time down in South Florida......
We loved living in Ft. Lauderdale. Chris and I had nothing but a shabby studio apartment when we got married, but we loved it. It was so nice to see Chris ever day, while I finished up my degree at the Art Institute. He was working for Franklin Templeton and I was so busy with my thesis but we still found time to get away to the Botanical Gardens in the Gables, and Naples on the west coast. We had so much fun together our first year of marriage. Maybe too much fun, thats when I found out I was pregnant about 3 months after being married, with the biggest blessing in our life, Missoni, our gorgeous, lovely baby girl.
