Christmas Fun!

I don't know about you guys but this was a strange Christmas for me...We have been trying all month to keep a right focus and talking about the true meaning of Christmas, the house was all decorated and the presents were wrapped....but somehow it didn't totally "feel" like Christmas.

Dominic's mom was really sick so we weren't able to go back to Parker for the weekend...so we spent that time at home as a family.  We didn't do anything terribly special....but it was fun to have a couple of extra days off to spend with family.

On Monday we went back to SD so that we could see my parents and then have Christmas Day with my sister's family.  We had cajun chicken linguini for Christmas Eve dinner and I have to say it might be my new favorite choice!! :) YUMMY!

Beth hosted on Christmas Day and we arrived to an awesome Christmas brunch! And her beautifully decorated house!

Someone had a little too much fun in the discarded wrapping paper...

It was such a fun and relaxing day....I just felt so blessed that we could be together. While we missed having my brother and his wife with us....they get a pass since their sweet daughter was born a few days ago, and traveling from CA would have been too much! We got to Facetime with them though and that was nice!

As long as everyone stays healthy we hope to celebrate with Dominic's family on New Years Day!  I hope that you all had a blessed Christmas!

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
