The most wonderful time of the year

December 28th....already December 28th. I sit here and reflect this whole week and how much it meant to me. The days leading up to Christmas, Christmas Eve, Christmas day and now after Christmas. It is all so sweet and my heart is full. 
I hope you had a VERY blessed and joy filled Christmas! 

Celebrating a first Christmas as a wife was definitely a new experience for me. The day before Christmas Eve, Sean came down with a bit of food poisoning {Wendy's chicken nuggets are now a big no no in our home} So he spent the beginning of Christmas in bed while I cleaned the house and took care of him. Luckily on Christmas Eve he was feeling a bit better. We woke up early and started cooking. I made deviled eggs and Sean made this DELICIOUS green bean casserole {I'll tell you, I wish I could cook half as good as that boy} We attended his Christmas Eve party at his parent's home {unfortunately I didn't take my camera :( } After more food we opened our gifts and just enjoyed each other's company. It was bitter sweet. 

On Christmas day, Sean and I woke up and opened our gifts to each other. It was so nice to wake up and just run over to the tree and open our presents together. Afterwards, we went to my parent's house to open gifts from Santa with my brother and sister and eat more food. 
Everyone remember The Hills? When she opened these my inner teenager came out again
Nobody plan on breaking in to my parent's house anytime soon....
And of course, it was a day of The Christmas Story. Over and over and over again. 
Then the food began....
After the pups opened their gifts, it was outside to some football, softball. airplanes and Nerf guns. 
It was such a sweet day. Nothing is better than being surrounded by family on holidays...or any days for that matter. Today we have our last Christmas celebration of the year with my side of the family. I'm joyous, ready to eat and anxious to take millions of photos of the memories. 

Have a very sweet Saturday lovely :)
