Christmas Time!

I've never actually had a REAL Christmas post on my blog! Wow!

Well, Christmas around my house is a big thing! We love having our family over here and this year was a success!

Before I get to Christmas Day, I'll cover Christmas Eve! Josh and I always swap gifts on Christmas Eve. He had me completely flipped around on what I was getting. Everything I wanted was out of stock. So I really had no clue! He also had no clue what I got him! It was something he had talked about all year whenever we saw them. Now he finally has them!

Look at the excitement on that face! Such a faker. He definitely knew he was getting those! ;)

#2. Golf balls

and # 3
Ready for this?

He looks so happy!

Pretty loafers!

Lookin' good baby!!

My turn!

yay I love my new jacket! :)

and... my Monkey sticker! haha

Thank you Joshua for my presents!

On to Christmas day!
The boys started off with a little Wiffle ball

There were dogs... carrying things around
Like deer hides.

My mom's Christmas decor. She made those cool boxes.

Cookie watching wiffle ball

We had lots of family time!

horrible horrible picture of me, but great of my uncle Johnny!

Well hey there Toby.
(Did I tell about Toby?! That dog right there... He's the GT frat house dog... another story for another time!)

Blair got a new kitchen! and She played and played!

Kids played games

Adults played White Elephant!

There were some pretty good gifts. I bought a loaf pan by Paula Dean. Pretty nice stuff! Daddy ended up with that! So it gets to stay in our house! I picked what linsey brought- one of those gay cans of popcorn... haha. I pawned it off to my little cousin in the green shirt after her snuggie got taken! I ended up with a mitten coffee cup. I think I should have held on to the popcorn! It was a fun time though!

We had barbeque this year! Last year we had chili and grilled cheese (my fav!)

We also had some baked beans, slaw, lots o' chips, and some yummy desserts.

One of my favorite parts of Christmas is breakfast. Even though I'm not much on Breakfast Casserole... I love eating me some grits and biscuits!

Joshua brought his helicopter that he got for christmas over to my house after lunch. It was definitely a crowd pleaser! 

Even Pop liked it. 
Then he landed it on the roof!

All the guys were having contests to see if they could land the helicopter on the table and who could do it the fastest. It was pretty entertaining! 

Then of course we had presents!


Lola.. hehe

Aunt Sue and Edithlynn

Mom got a Giant cookie cutter!

It was a great Christmas! I loved seeing everyone and getting to celebrate the birth of baby Jesus with them. Christmas always makes me so happy!

Now, it's time to go to Colorado!! I could leave right now and be perfectly fine with that. Josh is working night shift with his dad... and sleeping all day. That alone will make this week go by so slow!

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
