This year we had a wonderful Christmas and I just loved all my gifts I got and everyone loved the gifts we got them as well. Good times! We also had lots of yummy food and of course I ate way too much. Haha
Friday I decided to take a half day b/c I had a lot of baking to do for the weekend. I spent 3 hours in the kitchen making lots of goodies. I made chocolate snowdrops, quick little devil cookies, Fudge and pumpkin pie.
Christmas Eve morning Shane and I did our Christmas together. Lets see if I can remember everything we got each other....Kira dog got a bed, blanket, bone and a Kong. She is still getting used to her bed. LOL
Shane: In his stocking: Wallet, supplements, KU Koozie and Darth Vader candy dispenser.
His gifts: Rock Shoes, PS3 inter cooler, mesh drum heads for his rock band drums, under shirt, socks, Capital America long sleeve shirt w/ hat and subscription to a Rock Magazine. He's just a little spoiled :)
Me: In my stocking I got: Hat & Glove set, Chap Sticks, Tootsie Rolls and a Candy bar. All my gifts I got a camera bag, Memory card, Rechargeable Batteries, Inter cooler for my laptop and The Digital Photography Book Volume 1. I was so excited for all my new stuff! I love my bag! He did good this year.

That evening we had some of my family over: My Mom & Step Dad, Grandpa, Brother, Sisters, Nick (my little sis boyfriend), Brother-n-Law and Nephew. We had snacks foods and desserts for that evening. We all hung out talked and then we opened gifts. This was the first year we had a lot of people over Christmas Eve. I really enjoyed it and hopefully next year we can have everyone over in our new house. Fingers Crossed :)

Christmas Day we got up and headed over to his dad's house for Christmas over there. We hung out and then opened gifts and finished cooking Christmas dinner. Dinner was so yummy!! After dinner we had to head out so I could go to my Grandma's for Christmas over there. We were busy Christmas Day seeing all our families and eating food! I was so sleepy by the time we got home from Grandma's I passed out shortly after I got home. And sleep pretty good that night.
