Our Christmas (in pictures)

My husband surprised me BIG-TIME with a new camera for Christmas! He is so sweet! So, I took about 100 pictures of our Christmas Eve and Day...I deleted most of them...these remain. Christmas Eve was spent at my parents' house. It was kinda quiet this year. My sister and her family had other plans, so they only stopped by for an hour or two and Jay had to work. But, it was a very nice day. I'm just thankful to have such a wonderful family to spend the holidays with.
Christmas Day was spent at my sister's house. She does a delicious brunch every year. Her kids got Wii this year, so we spent most of the day boxing, bowling, and playing baseball. It was a blast! Even Lily got in on the action! My sister created characters on the game to resemble all of us...Lily got sooo excited to see "herself" on the TV screen. Her character had black hair with a pink bow on the side and big brown eyes - it WAS pretty cute. It was sad to see her get knocked out by her cousin in boxing...just didn't seem right. Today it was back to work, but the festivities pick back up tomorrow. We are traveling to spend Thursday thru Monday with Jay's family and have our Christmas with them. Hope you all had a blessed Christmas and I'll be back on Monday to try and catch up with everyone.
Enjoy the pictures and I'll catch you later! ( I do realize that some of these pictures are less than wonderful - I was, and still am, trying to figure out my new camera)...but I LOVE it!
