Christmas recap

This year we spent Christmas with Eric's family and we had such a great time! We ate, we talked, we ate some more, we opened tons of gifts, ate tons more food, laughed, ate, played with the kids, ate, and napped. I love Christmas :) I didn't take one picture but I assure you that it was a fun time for all! And good grief were we spoiled!
I love that my family knows the way to my heart... FOOD! Since I signed away all my gifts for the year I wasn't expecting anything but Eric surprised me with jerky! 2 bags of jerky that are bigger than my head! Be still my heart. The man loves me! And my in laws gave us the Bosch version of a kitchen aid, yay! I can't wait to get mixin' :) Eric got his first ever leather jacket and I got beautiful pearls. We were spoiled with home decor, movies, games, treats, and 72 hour kit supplies! Eric thinks I'm crazy to be excited about the last one but I was serious about getting my 72 hour kit put together :) Thank you to our awesome families for the spoils and love!
The best surprise of all was finding out that Eric didn't have to work on Monday! We hit up the after Christmas sales. I mean who doesn't love scratching, elbowing, and kicking a few people just to get some half priced ornaments?!


This is Eric's "our tree is going to be so ugly next year" look. Charming
Mom, doesn't his jacket look good? Thank you :)

We ate at Cafe Rio. Blessed Cafe Rio.

Ummm.... yeah. Best nachos ever!

We attempted to go see Sherlock Holmes, along with the rest of the city. We'll shoot for that another time. Instead we vegged at home the rest of the evening.


It was so great to just be together. Christmas was definitely good to us this year :)

I should totally hit up the after-Christmas sales to get Christmas decorations cause I have NONE. But I should also buy winter clothes when they are on sale at the end of winter and all that but I have such a hard time buying something I know I won't be able to use until next year! Haha.

I'm glad you had such a great Christmas. I wanted those glittery ornaments from Target for our tree next year, but we ended up buying snowflake lights instead. ha. Also, you need a warning at the beginning of your post if you're going to post a picture of delicious Mexican food - now all I want is a big plate of nachos! yum!
