Christmas #3

The final celebration of the year...and first celebration of the new year happened this past weekend at my parents house. I hadn't planned to go and spend the night at my parents house....but my hubs encouraged me to go so that I would miss any bad weather that might be headed our way and to just spend some time with my family.

Boy am I sure glad he did. I really need a night away from our house and needed some good old family time. I texted my sister to tell her I was coming up...but no one else new...boy you should have seen my parents faces when I walked inside the house.  They were surprised! And the bonus was surprising my brother, sil and niece! I was so happy to spend some time with everyone!

I didn't take any pictures on New Years Eve.....I spent at least an hour sitting in the recliner rocking Miss P....I was soaking up my time with her...and we enjoyed rocking as we listened to the conversations going on at the dinner table. Yes..I totally have baby fever after being around her this weekend.

My sis, bil, brother, sil and I spent the late evening hours playing Apples to Apples. I had never played...and it was really fun and we got some great laughs out of the game! I loved every minute...even though I was ready for bed and stayed up way past my bedtime!

Little "I" and I shared the same bed together. He tosses and turns all night and his feet ended up in my face on New Years morning. I loved having him wake me up and ask me if after our nap we could unwrap presents. :)  He had waited patiently all night to have Christmas at Grandma and Grandpa's house.

It was pretty much just like Christmas morning...Mom made breakfast casserole and cinnamon rolls and we unwrapped presents and sat around in our pjs all morning. I loved it! It was so much fun watching Little "I" unwrap his gifts...he definitely got distracted...but it made it last longer...and I loved that.

Here are some pictures of our morning...WARNING!! Picture OVERLOAD!

I loved snuggling with my little princess. She is so snuggly! I am going through withdrawals!

I had a bloggy friend make a couple of items for my niece and nephew...and they turned out SO CUTE! We even played dress up with Miss "P"....the pillowcase dress is a little big...but she looked adorable in it! And I loved watching my sil's reaction when she opened the gift!

Check out Brandy's etsy shop at: She did SUCH a wonderful job! Thank you Brandy!!

And just a few more snap shots of our time together...

So thankful for Christmas with family a great way to start 2011!
