On Christmas Eve we go to a close family friend's place for dinner, laughs, fun, and this year it was basically about my niece opening the gifts everyone got her. She made out like a bandit.
|Pop and Gram bring homemade jelly for gifts!|
|"I'm not German, I'm Danish". Well, I think it was funny.|
|My sister's cute mantel.|
|Mom, Kelly, Pop Pop, Grandma|
|She loves her GREAT Pop Pop|
|Special Wizard of Oz tree|
Later, at my parent's house, we had dinner and opened our presents. I got a super cool curling wand I can't wait to use! By the end of the meal I am so full that I just want to lay down and take a nap until next year (so technically a week *wink*), but when my mom and grandma make a pie you ALWAYS have room to eat at least a little piece.
|My brother spends Christmas with us too <3|
|Ads and her great grandma who she calls "Dutch"|
|It's Uncle Patrick!|
|She loves the gifts from her favorite sister ;)|
Even though I have been sick for the entire holiday weekend, I still managed to be pleasant and spread that Christmas cheer like I Can't Believe It's Not Butter on a biscuit. The word we are looking for is "smoothly" after that sad attempt at an analogy. I hope you all had a pleasant holiday! What was your favorite gift from Santa this year?
