Home For Christmas

Dec 27, 2013

Brittain & Me

This year, we seemed to cel­e­brated Christ­mas a lit­tle bit at a time. We had a fam­ily get together with Terri and Laren at their loft on the 23rd then a small Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tion at our house Christ­mas Eve.  Christ­mas morn­ing, my nephew Brit­tain and I headed down to Beau­mont to see fam­ily and cel­e­brate Christ­mas with my par­ents. Alan and Ans­ley both had to work on the 26th so they couldn’t come along but when I return home they’ll have a small Christ­mas cel­e­bra­tion with the gifts I bring back.

Lots of gift giving

We arrived at mom and dad’s house in the late after­noon and every­one was ready to exchange gifts. It’s always a flurry of excite­ment dur­ing Christ­mas at mom and dad’s. I’ve been very blessed to always have an amaz­ing Christ­mas. Mom and Dad have always enjoyed this hol­i­day and to this day make it spe­cial. But when your dad is Santa, really how could you not have an amaz­ing Christmas?

It's a selfie Merry Christmas

And of course, I had to take a selfie fam­ily Christ­mas photo. I drive every­one crazy with this type of photo but I think it’s fun and I always love the photo so they all just sit and humor me for a sec­ond, or two, or three.

Me, My sister, Nieces & Nephew

And to keep up with the tra­di­tion of my selfie pho­tos I had my nieces Amanda, Made­lyn and Bel­lie pose with me along with my sis­ter Belinda. I love how my nephew Brit­tain photo bombed our selfie.

Mom's Sugar Cookies I’ve lit­er­ally eaten Mom’s awe­some sugar cook­ies for break­fast, lunch and din­ner. They are the best sugar cook­ies ever!

Madelyn & Gingerbread House

Gingerbread House

Mom and I helped Made­lyn and Bel­lie make a Gin­ger­bread House. They LOVED mak­ing it and I think they ate just as much candy and icing as they put on the house.

Reindeer Noses

To fin­ish out the night, I showed Made­lyn and Bel­lie how they too could have a red nose like Rudolph by stick­ing a small Christ­mas light up each nos­tril… oh how they glowed and the gig­gles were price­less. I can remem­ber my brother Richard and I doing this for years when we were their age.

I hope you and your fam­ily had a won­der­ful Christmas.
