After all those things were completed, we finally got to settle down & focus on good times with family.
We spent Christmas Eve at the Watson's house this year. We attended mass at 4:30pm then went to their house afterwards for dinner & gifts. The girls were SO excited to have received their very first American Girl dolls! I think Izzy was the most excited!
|Someone was excited to get some moola!|
|Maggie's doll is winking saying Heeeeey! :-)|
SANTA CAME!!! The girls woke up Christmas morning around 6:30am to find Santa had come while they slept! I guess we were all really good this year because Santa was extra nice to everyone! Ride on car, ziggle, tablet, bedding, a grill, wine fridge, phones, makeup, bean bag chairs, etc. You name it, we got it! I also got a new shower door from Bo to be chosen soon by yours truly! :-) (why do I suddenly hear a major renovation about to happen? ;-) )
|Izzy got a Samsung 7" tablet & was SO excited!|
|Val, me & Julie with our mommy. :-)|
Even the adults got in on the action!
The rest of the family arrived and we got the tamales on the stove & the turkey in the fryer!

Dinner is served!
Let's open some gifts...
At the end of the night, Maggie grabbed her Hideaway Pet & passed out on the floor.
Long, fantastic day surrounded by family!
The next day, we celebrated Christmas with my dad. Our evening was filled with fajitas, crafts & more cousin time.
Santa even made a special appearance just for us!
I don't know about you, but I was officially pooped after all of our festivities...but I wouldn't change one thing!
I hope you had all a very...
