Christmas Recap

Hello everyone! I hope that you had an amazing Christmas with your friends and family! Mine was pretty great. Only a few things could have made it better. For instance, if my Mom could have made it home for Christmas. But it's okay that she didn't. I am sure we will see her soon. And if it would have snowed. I don't know what it is, but I am a sucker for a white Christmas. But really, it was a great day!

Christmas started for us on Christmas eve. My family came over to our house and we had dinner together. We made a ham, green beans with bacon, mashed potatoes and gravy and even had some delicious cinnamon apples with vanilla ice cream for dessert. It was deliciously yummy and everyone seemed to enjoy dinner.

After dinner, it was time to open presents. It was more about watching my Nieces rip into theirs, but we also opened a few gifts here and there. It was fun watching them open their stuff. They get so excited about all the stuff they get.

After all the presents had been opened and it looked like a bomb of wrapping paper, boxes and bows went off in our living room, everyone headed home. My Nieces needed to get home so that Santa could come, so after everyone left and after we cleaned everything up, we headed out to go look at Christmas lights for a little bit. We just drove around our neighborhood, but there were definitely some good ones.

Christmas morning we were up at about 8. We gave the kitties and the dog their stockings full of goodies. And they went to town on all of their new toys. They were in heaven. It was like having real kids on Christmas, haha!

While the animals were enjoying their new presents, we opened ours. I loved watching the Hubby open his gifts and see the excitement on his face. He had no clue what any of them were, so it was even more fun to watch. It was pretty much a Batman themed Christmas for him. That's all he wanted. As for me, I got some great things that I had really been wanting. My favorite gift of the whole day was my Wes Welker jersey!!

After opening our gifts, we got ready for the day and headed to church. In all honesty, Christmas Mass is always my favorite mass of the year. However, this year, it was the worst mass I have ever been too. The visiting Father made no sense at all in what he was saying and he must have been trying to break a record for the longest homily ever! It was awful and kind of disappointing.

After Church we headed home and picked up Louie and then headed up to see the Hubby's parents and to have dinner with them. Once we arrived at their place, we all opened presents together. His parents freaking rock and bought both of us some great gifts. We both got new fitbit wrist bands. Which I am absolutely loving!!

After all the gifts were opened, it was time for dinner. It was delicious of course. It always is! We had pork roast, fresh green beans, regular and sweet potatoe pierogie, and a delicious salad. And dessert was sooooo good too. We had homemade apple tarts with homemade froyo! Yummmmmm!!!!!

After dinner it was time to head home. Both the Hubby and I had to work the next morning, so we wanted to get home and get to bed.

It had been a great couple of days celebrating Christmas with our families. And I wouldn't trade it for anything. Did you guys have a great Christmas? What was your favorite part of it all?



  1. It sounds like you had a great Christmas!! I also got a FitBit though I'm pretty sure it's smarter than me. Can't wait to hear what you think about it!!

  2. Look like you had a fabulous Christmas! I love watching my nieces open all their gifts. They get so excited and kids just make holidays so much fun.
