Long Christmas Weekend

I am really enjoying the time I've spent with my family, and with only working one day in the office this week I've been soaking up the ME time. It also didn't help that I ended up with a cold and missed Christmas Eve service for the first time in forever.

Thursday I took a vaca day and scheduled a car tune up, yay. Then I packed up and headed to my parents. Even though my sister had to work, my brother still came over and hung out with the family. He also delivered his presents for under the tree.

When I woke up Christmas morning, my sister had gotten home late but still managed to get her presents "wrapped" in bags and under the tree. Plus Santa had visited.

The animals were in full swing right in the middle of the action and oh so cute.

We ended up behind "schedule" but since it was just the five of us we just figured out how to roll with the punches and ended up having a great day. I got so many things on my list and things I didn't ask for that were perfect for me! The animals were pretty happy with their gifts, too and Boomer got a little crazy unwrapping his treats!

We watched some cheesy Hallmark movies Christmas Land and Family for Christmas and we also finally watched Gravity.

I really hope you had a great Christmas and tell me what you're doing for NYE?! I still don't have my plans in concrete as like the last couple years.

Today we're heading to pick strawberries and tomatoes. I can't wait to make salsa and strawberry shortcake!
