Christmas Memories

This Christmas has been wonderful, and it is not over yet! We aren't officially having our family Christmas until the 30th. But so far it has been a Christmas to remember!

I wanted to recap the last couple of days!

I headed home Christmas Eve, I don't think my car could get me to Toxey fast enough. We have a Christmas Eve tradition at my house, which consist of basically whoever that wants to stop by does and we all eat boiled shrimp-per my grandmother's request, shrimp is her favorite!

These cuties helped me...
cut out Christmas shapes! We had so much fun!

Christmas Eve at Mammie's house! (What the girls call my mom)
These four have my heart! 

 My mom and I had gotten up early Christmas morning and made our rounds to the little ones house to see what Santa had brought. Santa wasn't stoping at my house until Adam arrived!

Christmas Morning Coffee Date with my grandmother!!

Christmas Day was wonderful..full of laughs, family and making memories.

Adam came to Toxey Christmas Day. I could not wait for him to get here. This will be our last major holiday we spend apart, thank goodness! (PS: we are down to the 5 month mark before the big day. Wedding planning is moving right along. A wedding post update is coming in the near future.) I could not wait for him to get to my house! All is right when Adam is with me.

Santa was good to Adam and I! We got a TV for the house!!

Santa brought me a sewing machine! I have made my first pillow.
 I can't wait to dive into the sewing world! 

Adam also surprised me with this adorable necklace and a Michael Kors watch!

We are beyond blessed. We have so much to be thankful for. It is so nice to be with family and to make memories this time of year. I pray we never take that for grated. I pray we always remember the true reason we celebrate Christmas. It is about Jesus Christ. It is about how He came to this world, fully God and fully man. He came to die on the cross, so that we may have eternal life. He is the real reason for the season.
Never Forget..
This picture blessed my heart. 
We told the girls they could decorate the Rice Krispy Treat however they would like.
We came back and this is what they had written.
