Christmas 2011

Christmas was BUSY this year!

We got back from the ski trip around 4:30 on the 22nd, then we unloaded the car and went to pick up the dogs from Lee's mom's house [a little over an hour away].  We went to dinner with his mom and sat around and talked for a little while and got back home around 10:30.  We were EXHAUSTED when we got home so we went straight to bed.  

The next morning we got up and finished up a little bit of shopping.  I got to Target around 8:30 and I was so glad I went pretty early because there was hardly anybody there.  Lee and I ate a late breakfast at Panera [their cinnamon crunch bagels are amazing] then came home and did our Christmas together.  He did really good this year [as usual]!  He got me an Erin Condren planner, a new camera, a zebra hat for skiing, The Help movie, season 2 of Modern Family, and a couple of other little things that I had wanted :)  I got him some new gloves for skiing [I gave him those early so he could use them on the trip], a new keyboard for his computer, a burger press to make stuffed hamburgers, and some other little things.  It was a good Christmas :)

New hat :)

My parents came to town on the 23rd, so after we opened presents we spent the rest of the day cleaning and wrapping presents.  I didn't wrap one single present before we went skiing, so we had A LOT to do!  Lee helped a lot.  When my parents got here we used Lee's new burger press to make hamburgers and just hung our for the rest of the night. 

On Christmas Eve morning we went to Lee's dad's house for brunch and to open presents with them.

After we got back from there we went to my sister's house to spend the night.  We did presents with my family that night then watched my nephew open his presents on Christmas morning.

 This one cracks me up...Riley wanted his mommy!


We left my sister's house around 11 on Christmas morning and headed over to Lee's grandmother's house to do Christmas with his mom's side of the family.  We had an awesome lunch and opened presents over there.  We stayed there until late that afternoon then went to his mom's house to open presents with her.  I made her a wreath I saw on Pinterest and I was so excited to give it to her!

Lee's roommate from college was in town for Christmas so later that night we got to hang out with him.  We had not seen him since last Christmas and it was SO good to see him!

We went to lunch with Lee's mom the next day then came back home.  I've spent the last few days trying to get this house back in some sort of order!  Hopefully we can start the new year with a clean, organized house!
