Christmas 2014 Recap


As usual I feel like Christmas flew by! It was definitely a busy one for us! Christmas Eve is also my birthday, so we always start with a birthday breakfast with family.  My aunt makes the best Eggs Benedict and we have mimosas. My sister also made me a cinnamon roll tree/cake! We always go to the Moravian church on Christmas Eve- one of my favorite traditions. Our Christmas Eve evening varies a little each year.  Last year it was just me and Dave- we got take out and then drove around to look at lights.  This year we hosted Dave's parents and grandmother, brother and sister-in-law, sister-in-law's parents, and my dad for dinner! I made it super easy on myself and ordered a Honey Baked Ham. Dave & I made a new dish- Gordon Ramsey's Gratin Dauphinoise.

Christmas morning we made our first stop at Dave's brother's house. It was Natalie's first Christmas! After breakfast and opening presents we went to my sister's house to see what Santa brought my nephews and niece. They are so cute at this age!

I loved everything I got for Christmas and my birthday! I feel super spoiled! My in laws got me this watch with a blue face that had been on my wish list for awhile. My sister always finds the best gifts- I spent the days after Christmas curled up on my couch with the amazing throw she got me. She also got me an awesome marble cheese board set from Anthropologie- can't find it online!

I need to take better pictures in 2015 and use my nice camera, not just my iPhone!
