We had a wonderful, but busy Christmas! On Christmas Eve we had an early dinner and opened presents with just our little family. It was quiet and peaceful and the kids enjoyed all the presents and fun. At 9pm we went to Mass. It was lovely, there is just something so holy and solemn about Christmas Mass!
Christmas day Santa came and the boys got up at the crack of dawn to meet him. Nana and Popo came over for breakfast and to check out what Santa had left behind. We got dressed and made our way to Baytown to see my side of the family. It was a relaxing afternoon with lots of good food and company. It made me realize I don't see my family near enough! We made it back home very late and were eager to get to bed.
The next morning we all slept in but Nana was busily preparing yet another Christmas meal! We went to Doug's parent's home and had a great visit with his family. It was so nice to have everyone together. JP says it was the best Christmas EVER...I agree!
