{Christmas Eve // Christmas Day}

I will get caught up...I will get caught up....

I am sure everyone is way past Christmas and already decorating for Valentines Day by now, but I couldn't go without posting about our Christmas.

It was good.

Real good.

I didn't take many pictures and was more present this year. But I do have a few to share. Our Christmases worked out well this year and we didn't have to be at 6 different places at one time. It was so nice! 

Christmas Eve we hung out at our house for a while and then went to Nate's parents house as we do every year. Nathan's mom orders a chicken nugget tray and fruit tray from Chick-fil-A and we eat that and other snack foods. We just hang out until 7 pm when the Christmas Story marathon starts. Mason got more into it this year than ever before. Nate's mom let him open one gift, which was a Ninja Turtle pillow. He was so excited!!

After the Halls we went back to get our cookies & reindeer food ready. Mason actually went to sleep pretty quick. But, not before singing Happy Birthday Jesus. I got it on camera. {It's just a black screen because we were in bed} It made me cry like a baby. I want to remember this sweet little voice for always.

Santa came and we caught him on camera this year. ;)

Christmas Day we woke up a little before 8:30 to get ready for Mason to see what Santa brought. I went to the living room to get the camera ready and such while Nate woke up Mason. He had a hard time waking him up at first! Nate had to remind him a few times that Santa came. I got the cutest video of him!

After Mason opened presents at our house and played with them a bit we loaded up and went to Nate's parent's house to open more gifts. We got way too much stuff and had a way good time withe everyone! We took our annual bow on the head and had 3 more people in our pictures this year {Michelle/Ty's girlfriend, Kelli/Jordan's wife, and Diesel}.

I can't believe it's all over! I'm already looking forward to next year!

Hope you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
