A Very Merry Christmas!

Merry day-after-Christmas everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas filled with more love than your hearts could handle! My Christmas celebrations started Christmas Eve and ended a few hours ago today. I enjoyed every single last moment, too. My church had a sweet little service on Christmas Eve and my Mom and I went to her friends Christmas party after that. Is it just me or do little kids on Christmas just totally make you wish you were five again? Ok, so maybe there’s A LOT of times where I wish I was five again…

The ONLY way to open a box.


Reindeer canes! Stealing this idea.




 On Christmas I woke up at my usual between-8-or-9 o’clock hour (strange for a 21-year old, I know) and was greeted downstairs by two blessings…my Dad and my pup. Oh, and Santa was pretty damn good to me as well. After breakfast, presents, card-reading and making myself a little more glittery than usual, we headed over to my Aunt’s house to celebrate. I adore my family, they’re absolutely hilarious and I never fail to almost wanna piss my pants at something someone says. This year was no different…and no, I haven’t peed my pants yet. Don’t worry, I’ll wait til I’m older and it’s a little more socially acceptable and I can blame it on my aging bladder. We ate, opened presents and chitchatted our day away. It was marvelous!

I don't even wanna talk about how many pickles I ate.




Happily opening her gifts!


Smiles allll around.


This morning, after recovering from my Christmas-feast and pickle coma, I met up with my brother, sister in law and Mom for lunch at Applebee’s. Of course, my beautiful niece Mia came along as well. She smacks a big cheesy smile on anyone’s face she passes. After lunch we opened presents at my Mom’s house until the snow forced us home. Speaking of – it’s still snowing! I love snow!

Her Daddy loves her! (and the Redskins)


Cute gum Mom!




Opening my goodies from Santa

Again – hope you ALL enjoyed your Christmas! I cannot believe how fast it came & went…and same with this year. I really don’t even want to think about how it’s almost 2011. I’m done with time flying. It needs to knock it off, right now. I’m off to watch a movie and snuggle by the fire with my dog and my Dad. I love being in good company on snowy nights 🙂

What did you do for Christmas (or whatever you celebrated) ?

Pickles…bread & butter or dill?

Peace and love!
