Christmas 2015

Another Christmas is in the books. . . it was a fabulous long holiday weekend and the first one in over 10 years where I had Christmas Eve off! We spend that evening at my brother Allan's house with our traditional Chinese food dinner. Lol! We opened gifts (I got Hunter boots and socks) and we watched my favorite Christmas movie, Elf! It was a nice night with unusually warm temps outside!

Christmas day was spent at my parent's house. It pretty much consisted of eating all day and watching my nieces open gifts. . .  all day! Ha! They sure did get a lot of gifts but it was so fun to see the looks on their cute little faces while they opened each and every one.

I looked high and low for the game Pie Face b/c I just knew my nieces would get a kick out of it. They actually had never seen it before but that didn't stopped them from being excited about it when they opened it. We played it for all of 5 minutes and it gave some good laughs. Somehow I avoided getting pie in my face (lucky me)!

Peyton got these cute little doggie slippers (that went great with her dress) and Ella got ANOTHER unicorn! She is obsessed with this unicorn that makes noises and moves. Two girls who were very pleased with Santa this year!

Uncle Allan gave the girls a scavenger hunt game and it was a big hit. They pretty much torn the house apart looking for all the items and got the whole family involved when they needed help!

Our annual Yankee Swap was a lot of fun this year with a lot of stealing! There were gift cards, scratch tickets, liquor and a few other odds and ends! I ended up with an Amazon gift card and will be purchasing some essential oil supplies!

We always take a family photo on Christmas and this year it came out pretty good! We were missing my cousin Chad and his family who were in NY but otherwise it was a great day! Oh and a very warm day - we had all the windows open!!!
