i started off christmas up at my folks house where all the family gathered.
we opened presents and of course had a BIG FEAST. my mom always makes a yummy spread of ham, potatoes, and yummy chips and dip. it was a little chaotic opening presents and trying to keep up with everything since jeremy wasn't there. he was working again
but not for long . . .
he showed up with lights and sirens to surprise everyone. i
t was hilarious because all the neighbors were running out to see what was going on and even paula welcker came out and hollered over to ask if everything was okay.
some exciting news i learned . . . my brother david got engaged!!!
jeremy and i hung out for a little bit longer while all my other siblings trailed off
we then headed home to have our own little christmas since we didnt open any presenta in the morning.
(lucky for us the kids are little enough it didnt matter to them!)
we hung out in our cozy little house and relaxed. opened presents. ate some pizza. took a bath with the new bubbly elephant. and baked some peanut butter temptations. (yum)
and i just have to say... i dont EVER get sick of my christmas decorations. i love them. i love the way it makes my house feel. i dont think i will ever change them!
