Again this year Christmas was a blast and a delight. My favorite part is all the food and spending time with family!
Christmas Eve had us heading over to my family where we ate and exchanged gifts. This year Christmas Eve dinner was held at my Aunt’s house and everything she does is over the top. I could write a whole blog post on Aunt Cindy. I am definitely a type “A” personality, but you haven’t seen anything yet until you meet her. This is her gorgeous backyard overlooking the Ashley River. The sun was setting on this glorious afternoon.
Evan really wasn’t too interested in opening gifts. He stole this straw from his Uncle Seth and was perfectly content playing and chewing on it the whole time.
You can always tell which gifts are from Aunt Cindy. Notice the gold present in the background with the huge elaborate bow. And yes, all of her presents are wrapped like that.
On Christmas day we headed over to Lovebug’s family for more food and more gifts. Evan and his cousin Emma strolled around Papa and Nana’s house in their new wagon.
You can tell what Evan is thinking: “Mom, why is Emma in the wagon with me?” We are still working on the whole sharing thing.
Evan is wearing the same shirt as he did on Christmas Eve. No worries, I washed it. I wanted to buy two different “Christmas” shirts with Evan’s name on them so I could avoid washing clothes on Christmas Eve, but a certain someone did not understand this reasoning. I’m not naming any names, but all I will say is that he happens to be my baby daddy.
After we left Lovebug’s family, we headed to Moncks Corner to my parents’ house where we yet again ate and opened more presents.
The day after Christmas we actually got some snow here in Charleston! Evan and I were so thrilled that we just looked out the window. Unfortunately, the ground was not cold enough to make the snow stick. But it was still beautiful to watch.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from our family to yours!
