I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas weekend! I sure did! It was filled with TONS of food & laughter! My baby cousins were a HOOT with all of their new toys! Santa was so good to them as well as to our entire family! I got my new camera Whoop Whoop (a Sony a5100)… super excited to start using it & to begin YouTube!! So stay tuned for that! But anyways, this Christmas was definitely one for the books! The holidays are always fun with my family, especially watching the girls grow up a little more each year!
We drove to Atlanta on Christmas Eve to begin the family festivities! I gave the girls my box of goodies I made them and the holiday poppers were a huge hit! They played with those all the way until dinner time, shooting everyone with those little red balls! It was hilarious! Each year the girls receive a message from Santa and he tells them whether or not they have been naughty or nice! It’s the cutest thing! Good news, they both got green aka they made it to the nice list! After that news they were so ready to head to bed so that Santa could deliver their gifts.
7:30 am call time, although early, I think we were all ready to start Christmas morning! It’s the best to watch my baby cousins open their presents! Paper and bows flying everywhere!! Afterwards it was time to get ready for the BIG Christmas meal! For the last few years we have gone to the St. Regis Hotel for their Christmas feast! It’s an unbelievable experience! Food Galore! Anything & everything you can think of they have! This year it was a little different set-up but definitely an experience to remember. Santa & Mrs. Clause made a guest appearance. There was a juggler and two men on stilts, acrobats and ballerinas, and a live band! It was such a great time and left the whole family in a food coma!
We decided Christmas wouldn’t be the same without seeing some Christmas lights! We went to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens and Oh My Goodness it was crazy beautiful! Definitely one of the best light shows I have been to!
We ended this year’s Christmas night with our favorite holiday movie, Family Vacation. It’s a tradition in our household to watch it every Christmas. Although we can recite every line it still gives us lots of laughs and it’s a great way to end the night!
Until next year! Thank you for following this years Blogmas!! Now it’s time to get ready for NYE! Ready or not, here we come 2017! Can’t wait to see what is in store!
