Christmas Day

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas day! We sure did. We spent the day eating, relaxing and opening presents. I think eating was the biggest part of the day...I'm still full! =0


I kept forgetting to take pictures but luckily Kevin took a few.


Here's Chase after opening up his Ipod. He was so excited...that was the main thing he wanted.



Here's me...I don't know what I was doing with my hand on my stomach. Probably trying to push my belly in from all of the food I ate! lol...I could have dressed up a little more, but I was in a hurry to get ready.

Here's my mom holding up the jacket I bought her. That color is really good on her.


I love this picture! My dad bought Sassy Cheez-its for Christmas...they are her favorite treats! Every time my mom and dad come over she will not stop barking at them until they give her Cheez-its. I think she's a little spoiled!




I wish I had more pictures to show you. I didn't even get any of my brother or grandma! Shame on me!


We have another Christmas next weekend with my dad's side of the family. I still have more presents to buy...so I will be out shopping again tomorrow. I thought I would wait until the after Christmas sales.

I still can't believe Christmas is over! After next weekend I will be ready to get things back to normal. I will also be listing new Etsy store items this week and next. I am anxious to get started on some new everyday items.


I hope you have a wonderful week!!

I'm glad you had a great Christmas! I had to laugh at the Cheez-It's. Our doggies love them, too! Have a blessed new year!

Merry Christmas my sweet friend - you look beautiful! I didn't even put on my makeup until 4 o'clock in the afternoon and that's only because we had to go out. Your home looks absolutely stunning for the Holidays.
xoxo,
Kim
