Christmas Twenty Eleven

This Christmas was a little different than any other Christmas but it was blessed nonetheless.
It was my first Christmas Eve not spent at my grandparents house along with the rest of my family. We spent the evening at Mr. Stox {a family favorite restaurant} and enjoyed a delicious dinner and made lots of memories around that table!

 Christmas Eve


We spent the night at my parents house like every year on Christmas Eve and woke to a beautiful morning. 
75 degrees and sunny I might add!

Kate was thrilled to see that Santa came during the night!


 The tree was overflowing with gifts..
So much love was shared.
The girls in our new jammies
{yes, I realize I look like a big blown up Minnie Mouse}

.four generations.

We matched and didn't even plan it

My blue eyed babe


We missed sharing this beautiful time of year without grandpa. It just wasn't the same but we kept picturing him celebrating with Jesus and all of our other loved ones who have gone before us and then everything seemed ok.

We ended the day with Chris' family...opened more beautiful gifts and enjoyed an awesome prime rib dinner. I don't have any pictures from our evening but I got a new camera so rest assured there will be no more pictures with black dots in the middle of them!

Hope y'all had a great Christmas! All our decorations are down, we I am cleaning and organizing like crazy. So ready to ring in the new year and welcome our son into the world!

Many blessings.
