Well, I've finally gotten through all of my photos from the Christmas festivities this year, so I thought I'd provide you with a little recap! We had a GREAT Christmas with our families, although it went by way too fast!
We started off by going to my grandma, Mama T's house on Christmas Eve to celebrate with my mom's side of the family...
Of course there were plenty of presents...
And plenty of food!
This is JoJo, my aunt Terri's furbaby :)
And after catching up and getting all of our chit chatting out of the way...it was time for PRESENTS!
Caitlin's stack of presents always looks strikingly similar...hmm...DVDs anyone? ;)
And this is the 2nd year in a row Mama T cried after opening her gift... I'm 2 for 2 :)
My dad got this lovely pair of pink gloves!
Actually, that was just a gag gift...he really got some biking gloves. He sure was confused for a minute!
Daisy thought Mama T might need some help opening her gifts :)
After presents we played an intense game of Rummikub
Caitlin, Shelley and I all got a pair of socks from our Aunt Terri :)
Our first Christmas as Mr & Mrs G
After Mama T's we went over to my mom and dad's house to exchange gifts with them (meanwhile there was a BLIZZARD happening outside!)
Aww, aren't they just so cute?!
I really liked this wrapping paper my mom used :)
And I called it! Check out the cute ornament Mom gave us
Their dog Jake was just tuckered out!
Then we came home and each opened one present from each other - I gave Matt a pair of jeans, and he gave me a pair of slippers. (We like to get one "lame" gift out of the way before Christmas morning :)
Christmas morning came, and the hubs had to drag me out of bed... then we opened presents! Sorry, I didn't take any photos. But I got a GPS for my car (which if you know me, you know this is JUST what I need :) And I gave hubby a new Wii game, and a beard trimmer (woah...I just went crazy didn't I...)
We then had to go pick up Mom & Dad, because that blizzard I mentioned was still coming through, and we had like a foot of snow on the ground. Luckily Matt drives a 4 wheel drive SUV, and was able to save the day! We all went over to my other Grandma's house, where we ate brunch, opened more presents, and then ate a great big turkey! For some reason I didn't take any photos there either. Oops.
But our last stop was the In-Laws (ha! Haven't really said that before!) Matt's sister and her hubby just had a baby at the end of November, so she was pretty much the star of the evening. At least for my camera she was :)
This is miss Alexus Taylor
How adorable are these?!
Hangin out with Grandma and Grandpa
"Wow, your face sure is scratchy Grandpa!"
Quite possibly the most adorable hat I've ever seen on a baby!
The hubs getting some practice (holding a fussy baby! :)
Daisy was VERY curious
Well there you have it! Kudos if you made it all the way through this post :) I hope everyone out there had just as great of a holiday as we did!
