Just like that, it’s all over.
All the prepping, all the shopping, list making, menu creating, etc. The stress. It’s done.
We had an incredible weekend, while I’m sad it’s over, there were tons of memories made and everyone was happy. In the end, that’s really all that matters.
Saturday, we woke up, finished up a few things and then headed over to my Mom’s house with the rest of my brothers, their families and part of our extended family. We had the most delicious Mexican food feast, the only thing I managed to get a picture of was the fajitas…and that was because I was cooking them and wouldn’t let anyone dig in until I got a picture. Then a gift exchange, watched The Santa Clause and then went home.
Once we got home, we set up for Santa snacks, put the kids to bed and then watched one of my all time favorite Christmas movies, It’s a Wonderful Life.
Sunday morning we opened up our gifts at home, then went to Church.
and then after Church, we went back to my Mom’s house for more presents and lunch.
14 year old: UA Curry Shoes (don’t ask what they are, but after a few google searches, I got the right pair.)
11 year old: Tumbling mats
8 year old: RC truck and robot
2 year old: Itty Bitty American Girl
Our last stop on the Christmas express was to my husband’s parents house for dinner. We met up with his oldest brother and family here visiting from SC.
All I wanted was one nice family picture. Emma did not. They all decided to be like her…
Many, many tries later, I got one.
And then it was finally time to go home and go to bed, where everyone slept straight through till morning!
