The holiday post....finally

Christmas Eve was at our house. The pre-made dinner worked out nicely. Especially since everyone's schedules were a little off and dinner had to be a little later than planned. Before the rest of the family arrived we (P, me, R, H (his finance') and C) exchanged gifts, since R and H would not be with us Christmas morning. One of H's gifts to me was this frame she made for me.

Here R tries to figure out why we gave him snowboard bindings? Perhaps he should look under the sofa to see. He was pleasantly surprised to find a new snowboard, especially since he thought he was getting nothing for Christmas since we have given him money for his new apartment.

My bf dropped off this cookie tray to us. She does this every year. Thankfully she has decreased the size over the years.

P was in charge of photos and obviously neglected to take ANY of the festivities. R did get this one of Zoey in the den. Oops, I think she has dress issues.

Rosie, well she was just plain EXHAUSTED.

We never did get to my aunt's house. After everyone left, around 9:30pm, P and I headed over to my dad's for some quiet time. He and A had been at our house, but she really wanted us over for more dessert.

Forward to Christmas morning. After sleeping in until 8:30am! Presents got underway. P decided the gang should get dressed again and Marty put on his Santa Suit.

Chloe was very intrigued by the whole thing.

Heh, C what did you get?????

Zoey - "She got a laptop Chloe, can't you read?"

Lucky you, getting to sleep in until 8:30! My brother still insists we get up early, but he graciously allowed us to sleep until 7:25 on Christmas.

Love the frame! And those cookies look sooooo good. Jason put us on a post-holiday diet, and I am hungry!
