Happy Holidays!!

Happy New Year

It was a great Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. We spent Christmas Eve at my house with our three kids. This is Aerial opening her candle etc gift. We were so blessed this year with our gift giving to the kids. They also gave mom and dad lots of gifts since they have all been working full time.

We went to my Father In laws yesterday for breakfast/brunch. My husband and I brought Bloody Mary fixins. We had beef sticks, celery, salami, huge olives, cheese cubes and limes to add to the drinks. We totally had a great morning and opened gifts. My daughter was our sober cab LOL, we got home around 4:30pm. The kids all went out with friends, dad went into my office to watch TV and eventually fall asleep. I relaxed with a glass of wine and a fire..

I sent this picture to my Father In law and thanked them for a great day. I got to read and unwind. It was an awesome day. Getting ready to get my hubby up, I let him sleep in this morning. We are going to head out for an early lunch today and some shopping.

What are your plans today?

Happy New Year!!
