Christmas 2011 Recap

It was a very Merry Christmas at our home this year! The RedHead and I celebrated our 8 year anniversary on December 20th and I arrived home to find this mystery gift on the doorstep.
Lilly-Belle is really wondering what it is?!?
Ta-da! It was a Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer (which I've wanted FOREVER!) and the Hunger Games trilogy. If you haven't read this series, go buy the books, lock yourself in your room for three days and enjoy. They are SO good! I was totally surprised by his gift, but the best gift is the wonderful eight years we've spent together since we said, "I do".
Christmas card photos were taken...which is really hard when my children like to make goofy faces in practically every picture!

We put up a really big tree (the bigger the better!) and I named her Lucy. Don't worry, we did adorn her with gifts later.
We made several batches of these yummy treats: Peppermint Bark Rice Krispie Treats  and Christmas Party Mix. On Christmas Eve, the family came over to celebrate and we had a fun surprise guest...
Colson telling Santa he wants a Nintendo 3DS, some candy and a couple surprises.
Lilly-Belle told Santa that she wanted a "horsey".
Bug in her Christmas dress made by her Ya-Ya (my mother-in-law)

Then Santa came back and brought lots of goodies!

On Christmas morning, the RedHead cooked his traditional Christmas breakfast, biscuits and gravy. He also added Apple French Toast this year, which was delicious! His parents and my Mama were here to open presents too.
One more reason I love him!

Cool Chick!

On Christmas day we went to visit more of the RedHead's family and the kids got to ride real horses, which made Lilly-Belle's day!
She was in heaven!

We were certainly blessed this year, and I look forward to seeing what 2012 has to bring. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
