one of the most glorious messes in the world is the mess created in the living room on christmas day.

Well, Christmas is over. It's amazing how quickly the day always seems to pass. (I hate that part. I always wish that I could rewind and do it all over again!) This year, my Christmas was lovely. I really needed the break from work, even though I am paying for it now. Christmas was also great because I was able to spend the day with the people I love most...what could be better?

It started off very early in the morning, as it always seems to. My brother and I opened up our stockings, ate tons of chocolate and waited for my sister to arrive. Then my family and I spent the rest of the morning opening up presents and eating way too much food. Later on, my lovely boyfriend came over before dinner. We exchanged gifts, watched Christmas movies, and spent time with the family. Needless to say, it was a wonderful Christmas.

While I try to recover from the holidays (and catch up on my work. Ack!), I thought that I would share a few pictures from the last week or so. From Christmas dinners to baking, and of course, Christmas's all here. Enjoy!

What do you think of these pictures? How did you celebrate the holidays?

  5. Hey girl! I agree....Christmas always passes by too fast and it makes so sad! I too wish I could rewind and really take in each and every moment! It is such a beautiful holiday all about family (and food;). That giant sized gingerbread cookie is awesome! And you look so pretty in the pictures! Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy New Year:)!
