Christmas Eve 2011

We spent the evening at my parents with my brothers and sisters eating soup, chili, and rolls, opening presents and letting all the little cousins run wild. We played a fun Christmas song guessing game and all had a great time!

Christmas happenings 2011

We had a wonderful Christmas. the celebrations for us started the 23rd when we had a wonderful evening with Trent's family. We had our traditional Mexican dinner, gift exchange, pajamas from Grandma and Grandpa, nativity scene with the grandkids, me singing a solo, and Grandma reading "I Believe in Santa Claus". We love spending time together as a family and its always a treat to have Grandma and Grandpa Summers visit!

Since I have been super lame at blogging (and many other things) I need to put together a year in review post. But at this moment I just have a jumble of things in my head that I have decided to spout off.

My husband is super handsome and I hate that he is always leaving the house super early lately. I like waking up with him next to me.

My children are darling and funny and always (okay maybe not ALWAYS) put a smile on my face.

I love the smell of a live Christmas tree and sitting in it's glow.

I love the smell of the little cutie clementine oranges the kids have been eating all day and hope my hands smell like them all night.

I'm so glad we took a day trip to the snow, even though our plans of cutting down our own tree were thwarted by closed roads.

I am currently still telling myself that I will take pictures of the kids and send out a New Year's card, since I hate the fact that I didn't get a Christmas one done this year.

I am sort of excited for Christmas to get done so I can start focusing on the nursery. Although, I do love Christmas, I'm just feeling exhausted by it this year. I still haven't bought my in-laws gifts. I have 4 days. . .
