We had a merry little Christmas here. And by “merry” and “little”, I mean crazy and filled with family.
We kicked things off the weekend before Christmas with the annual family party for my Mom’s side of the family.
It was an afternoon filled with cousins, presents and lots of food.
Our annual Christmas card wreath got all nice and filled up. I love getting these and love seeing them all spread out like this.
My parents adopted two new kitties the day before Christmas Eve and stopped by on their way home to show them off.
They’re teeny tiny! Adorable.
Christmas Eve we went to Mark’s Uncle’s house. It was another day of eating way too much. And lots of good company.
Mom and Andy stayed over our house on Christmas Eve. We did “midnight'” mass (which was really at 10 pm!) and then slept in a bit Christmas morning. Santa came!
Rocky donned his bowtie for the day.
And Kali happily tried out her new harness.
It was a lot of playing, and by the time my family showed up she was completely pooped.
There was more food, and more gifts (and the TV Yule log!). PJ wrapped his own. It was impressively bad.
Grandma brought Christmas crackers. She got a bottle opener in hers – hilariously appropriate!
The matched hat club!
I got a lot of great gifts. These are one of my favorites:
Laura knit them for us! I can’t wait to put them up next year!
And, that was Christmas in a nutshell for us. I can’t believe it’s already over!
