Anyways... Where in the world do I begin with Christmas? It was Phenomenal. We celebrated with Jake's family the Sunday before Christmas, his brother is a flight attendant and that's when he would be in town. We had our Christmas dinner tradition of Hawaiian Haystacks. Which are bomb. Then we all did our sibling gift exchange. Jake got from his brother this candy vending machine for Jake to have at work! Then my future brother in law to be gave me one of those White Willow figurines. Its a mother with two sons, yep I cried. Cause I am a boob baby like that.
Christmas Eve Day
On Christmas Eve, it was spent with my family. We did appetizers. So wings, Pulled pork nachos, desserts, chips and queso. Ya know, the works! My parents started the night out wuth a slide show. It started with saying we are taking you guys on a trip, the next said with beaches, and sunshine, and then they told us they booked, paid for our flights, and our trip to...MAUI, HAWAII!
No kids. 7 FULL days. Our own condo. Our own rooms. Beach. Sun. Heaven on Earth. And at the beginning of February! SO soon!
Then the next best part...yes there is more. My parents when they have us over for Christmas Eve do Deal or no Deal. Well this year Jake and I picked the box with the most cash $500! It wasw the funniest Deal or No Deal game ever. Jake was freaking out and wanted to take the deal but I was CERTAIN we had the $500. Luckily he listened to me cause we won it!
That night just our little family spent the night at my parents so we could do Christmas morning with my parents and brother.We laid out cookies for Santa, poured Reindeer Food in the snow and went to bed in our new Christmas Jammies.
We woke up to our stockings and the boys got gifts from Santa. Ashton got a Car Mat with cars and Boston got his stuffed animal and a toy that crawls. Jake fixed my wedding ring that has needed some serious help and got me some new clothes, and some gym clothes. Jake got a new basketball hoop which has been his lifelong dream.
It was definitely a Christmas to remember and what made it even better was how much snow we got. The most perfect White Christmas.
