We had a very busy Christmas. So busy I got incredibly sick...YUCK!

We actually didn't even decorate until the Sunday before Christmas. I felt like it was a waste of time...which is sooo sad, because I LOVE to decorate for Christmas. I LOVE November... the first signs of Christmas, but with finishing the kitchen, rearranging the house, trying to get the nursery cleared out, and finishing my last weeks of school (work) I felt like there were more important things to do than put up a tree and pull decorations down from the attic....and to only have them up for only a week or so...there are so many other things that need to get done.

However, Jon's parents and younger brother Lars came out from MN to celebrate with us. So we felt like we needed to decorate. I wish I had pictures of our house decorated...becuase (I think) it actually came out great this year. I think this is the best we have done. The day we finished decorating Jon's family got here, and there was no time for pictures before luggage came in. (I will try to get some pictures after I pick up some...but my picking up might turn into undecorating)

We had a wonderful time with both of our families. It was fun to be all together for Christmas.

Christmas Eve dinner. It came out really yummy! Stuffed pork roll, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing, and biscuits. May I say again, YUM!

Christmas day we all went to my moms house for a big breakfast and to open presents.
My moms tree with gifts for Mom, Jimmy (big brother), Matthew (little brother), Jason (little brother), Jon (hubs), Linda (Jon's mom), Richard (Jon's dad), Lars (Jon's little brother), Aunt Doris (aunt), AJ (cousin), and Me.

Jon helping my mom with her big breakfast. He stood in the kitchen for like 30 minutes making 3lbs of bacon...WOW.

We had a blast!
