I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!! I enjoyed relaxing and spending time with family that I love so much. I think even I take for granted my AWESOME family and this Christmas season I really thought about how blessed I truly am. I didn’t NEED anything for Christmas but God has blessed our family so much.
I got my husband a gift card and on it said “Happy Birthday”. I guess I didn’t get a great look at it when I bought it. But I told him when he opened it that its Jesus’ Birthday! That is the true meaning of Christmas and I hope everyone got that message too 🙂
I just want to start the day by showing you how lazy my “Sir Jackson” is: He lays down when he eats his breakfast!
Ill start with Monday:
After the Christmas Eve service at church we went back to my moms house to eat an assortment of appetizers and drinks! We also had awesome homemade beef vegetable barley soup and sandwiches. What is better than soup on a cold day, homemade at that!!
There was also an assortment of desserts, which I told my mom not to have. O well its the holidays, back to the grind now 🙂
The Christmas “Yule Log”
And then we headed over to open gifts, of course!
We all went in together and got my dad the gun he had been wanting. He loved that thing!
Don’t you think its so funny how men wrap gifts!! My dad got my mom a bottle of her favorite wine, and wrapped it in the bag from the store!
And I got a kindle Fire!
We played Wits & Wagers until about Midnight to conclude the night. It was a blast.
For Christmas breakfast I made a sausage, egg, and cheese bake with hash browns.
The dogs enjoyed their Christmas breakfast too and then their gifts.
And then we opened stockings and gifts.
Eric was pumped about his whole outfit, so he put everything on.
We headed to Eric’s parents house for lunch and to open more gifts!
I love my new headbands!
And then we played a game of “Apples to Apples” and laid around all day. It was glorious!
Alec tried to get one of every dessert! He of course, didn’t eat it all!
Guess I better get baking 🙂
It was an amazing Christmas and I hope yours was just as good 🙂
