Christmas was at my house again this year.
I love it at my house.
My parents arrived in the early afternoon and then my sis and her family shortly after and we had a big slumber party. I couldn't wait for them all to arrive to let the fun begin!!
Christmas in our family changes gears at dinner time and looks a little different because it's also this dudes birthday.
Rodney loves that he shares his birthday with Jesus :)
But the really big surprise was when I was taking their family photos the weekend before.....my nieces Kamisha and Whitney said they wanted to drive up to my house for Christmas day.
My head snapped around so quickly with such glee and excitement and I just asked......okay what do you want to eat I'll make you whatever you want. :)
They wanted my pear salad and chocolate so I made them that salad with dinner and some decadent chocolate mousse (2 girls after my own heart)!. I don't get to see them as often as I'd like so when I do.....I'll do anything for them ;)
Naturally I was in heaven!
House full of laughter and love and fun and fellowship and just being together...happy and healthy and with eachother!
Kam and Whits couldn't spend the night so I did everything I could to make the night last as long as possible before we had to say goodbye to them :(. I made them each a latte for their drive home...you know just to make up for my stall tactics!
So later in the evening we all bundled up with hats and blankets and piled into the car to go looking at Christmas lights.
Then home for some Wii fun and the kids staying up until midnight :)
I had a wonderful Christmas day - I hope you did too!!
