A Wonderful Christmas Was Had By All!!

I hope each and every one of you had a very blessed Christmas with loved ones!

WOW!!! What a week! We all had such a fabulous Christmas spent with lots of family and friends. On Christmas Eve we all went to my husband's mom and dad's house. All of his brothers, sisters and family friends gathered there as well so there were tons and tons of friends, cousins, aunts, uncles and of course lots of yummy food and baked treats! We had such a great time. Then we came home and had Christmas morning at our house. After we opened our gifts and had breakfast, we packed up and went to my mom and stepfather's house. Another day with lots of fun and food. My sister came from South Carolina and my brother was there too. We had a delicious dinner of Smoked Cornish Game Hens, Broiled Asparagus with Garlic Butter, Cheesy Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Dinner Rolls and of course a table full of delicious treats to choose from for dessert! Then, on the day after Christmas, we gathered with my sister and my dad at my brothers house and we did it all over again. I love this time of year! We continued to visit more family through out the rest of the week and yesterday my mom and my sister came over and we all went shopping. Then afterwards, my husband met us for dinner at a brand new pizza place that just opened up in our town. It was delicious!! Whew!!! It's been a long week but lots of fun!

As we're slowly drifting back into the swing of things, we decided to take it easy today. It's cold and raining here so we decided to take this day and make it cozy. I got out the popcorn popper and we made some good old fashioned popcorn and snuggled in to watch Mary Poppins.

I want to thank all of you sweet bloggers for visiting our Christmas Home Tour and for all of your kind and generous comments! You all are the best!!

And speaking of gifts, would you just look at the gift bag that my mom and sister made? They actually made lots but this is the only one I got a picture of. So cute!!

They made really cute gift tags to go with them too. Those crafty ladies!!
