Talk about a lazy morning! Or, I suppose I should say afternoon now…
Jay and I decided last night that we were not going to set an alarm for today (we both have the day off). Well, no alarm = a wake up time of 10:00am – about 10 hours of much-needed sleep. The extra sleep was definitely necessary after our long day yesterday – let me fill you guys in on where we last left off!
After about an hour of waiting, my camera battery was finally ready to go. SO exciting! I basically spent my entire day playing around with it…
Rye Bread Dip (YUM)
My Chocolate Saltine Bark
Mom & Dad’s photo album I made for them for their upcoming trip
The Christmas Dinner table
Each of us got a Mrs. Prindable’s Gourmet Caramel apple at our seat (another one of mom’s QVC purchases).
Eventually, dinner was served…I just LOVE our Christmas day lasagna!
I loaded up with lots of everything.
I swear, it was one of the best batches yet!
After dinner, Jay and I headed up to Saratoga to spend some of the evening with his side of the family. As always, things were hustlin’ and bustlin’!
There was some singing of Christmas songs.
Time spent chatting with family.
And then, there was a visit from Santa!
Santa visits every year and it’s always so fun to see everyone (yes, everyone!) take a seat on Santa’s lap and get a gift.
Santa even commented on my new hair color this year – I was quite impressed at how observant he was.
Once Santa left, Jay and I headed back home to finally have our own Christmas at home. We were both exhausted, but too excited to wait until today to have our Christmas. Plus, Cody really missed us, so we had to spend some time with our little guy.
So we changed into our cozies, settled in, opened up some gifts, and played with the Codester.
New perfume by Rihanna – WOOP!
Under shirts – so exciting (but so necessary!)
I’d have to say that Christmas 2011 was definitely a great one. So much to be thankful for, so many fun times spent with family.
Now today, Jay and I are planning on being super lazy – and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Have a great day, everyone!
