Weekend Update: Christmas

Anyone else completely lose track of what day of the week it was over Christmas? I am still trying to get back on track. . .  And I’m still on vacation this week! So, honestly, it really doesn’t matter. Winking smile 

But, I did want to share my Christmas holiday with you. And in the spirit of Tuesday and treats, I am linking up with Becky for TYT.

Our Christmas celebration started on Christmas Eve with Scott’s family.


His parents and brother came down for the evening. IMG_4058

And my MIL brought the best hostess gift ever. Huge sprinkle sugar cookies! IMG_4033

So, we had dinner, but the highlight is always our dessert table after church . . . it’s epic. Smile 


Then, presents. . . .


And Santa came! A new backpack, dump truck and shovel for Luke.


He loved every minute of it.




And I gave the boys matching Purdue sweatshirts.


And totally scored with a new winter coat from Scott!


Abby got a new bed.


Then, we headed up to my parent’s house. And I brought the most wicked cold I have had in a long time. No fun! Thankfully the Afrin helped. . . .


Grandpa and Luke got a new sled.




And Luke loves his new John Deer tractor.


The day after Christmas, Scott and I headed out to do a little shopping. . . we almost bought a 2015 Toyota highlander. . .but decided to sleep on it for a few nights.


And then the final Christmas gathering was with my extended family – including my grandparents. And the most adorable part of the afternoon was when my Grandma said that she made my balsamic crockpot chicken. So cute. Smile 


The rest of the weekend was spent at home. Laundry, playing with new toys, and watching the Packers play the dirty Lions – btw omg – did you see that game? What a jerk that Lion was to step on (and stand on!) Aaron Rodgers injured leg!


Anyway. . . hope you had a great Christmas too. Smile 

Tell me what your favorite part was!

  1. Luke is one lucky boy! He made out great this holiday. & yes I saw that play. Did you see that Suh has been suspended this weekend? I totally don’t think that was enough – especially since it’s not his first time.

    Buy the highlander! It’s like driving a stick of butter. Soooo smooth.

  7. I bought a new winter coat last spring from eddie bauer and its finally cold enough that I need to use it! I feel a little ridiculous being so short in a long coat, but the warmth is worth it.

  8. What a great Christmas! Ours was awesome, too, lots of good food and hanging out with family.
    Love your new coat, and hope your second week of vacation is just as awesome!

  9. I can’t believe the announcers were even questioning if Suh stepped on Rogers on purpose. Of course he did…he is a dirty player!! Ugh! At least he is suspended for the game against the Cowboys!
