Merry Christmas and a Busy New Year

So the Post title might give it away that I maybe shouldn't be blogging right now, I should probably be packing. We're headed back to school tomorrow (New Year's Eve) and we haven't finished packing... at all.

I know, I haven't done anything with this since we got married. ha ha anyway, Marriage has been awesome and we just had a WONDERFUL Christmas! We were able to celebrate with both of our families which is totally awesome. We had Christmas Eve with both of our families at Benny and Laurie's Beautiful Newly Reconstructed Home. It was AWESOME! We had Paninis's (a personal favorite of mine) played games and hung out which was awesome. I love the Holidays it gives you a chance to reconnect with family because you have all this time all year long and everyone is so busy it's hard to take time to just relax and know that you don't have any job or school to go back to the next day! Anyway, Jeff and I had our own Christmas Morning then headed over to Benny and Laurie's for Wafflecakes (a mixture of waffles and pancakes) and opened present with Jeffs side of the family! It was AWESOME! and so much fun with the little girls to see how excited they got over presents and the huge DOLL HOUSE Laurie got them and Jeff got to build. I haven't had a christmas with little kids for a while so it was great! WE had matching pajamas which had a funny story behind them. (we thought they had been stolen.) Laurie could not find them on Christmas Eve, and thought she left them in the car but they weren't there. So sadly the girls would not have matching pajamas that year. Benny asked what color they were and Jenna told him Red. So he shrugged it off not knowing where they could be. We all came to terms and were fine that our pajamas would not match. Later after everyone had left for the night we were playing cards and Benny came out... HOLDING THE PAJAMAS! ha ha ha Laurie was like Benny! haha I thought you didn't know where they were! His reply was You said they were Red! These are STRIPED! ha ha ha oh my goodness! It was really quite funny...

Christmas day with my parents was great and DELICIOUS! My dad made Prime Rib which ahhh, was the BEST! Wow it was so good! My aunt sherrie made amazing Rolls! I think I had like 10. we also had really good salmon and ate and ate and ATE! Mmmm yum. Anyway, I was so much fun, We exchanged presents before dinner and my uncle and his Kids were there as well it was good to see them again. We also played a really fun New game that we got for our WEdding. It's called Dicecapades! I recommend it. However, beware when you play with a bunch of people who apparently have ADD you may be there playing for a while... Chad and Melanie and Baby Jack came over later and they are such a cute little family. We had so much fun with my family, it was weird it was my first Christmas partially away from home. :(. And their traditions and fun still went on even though I wasn't there! But, I can't wait for Jeff and I to establish our own traditions!

I LOVE CHRISTMAS, JEFF, FAMILY AND LIFE :) That was an awesome Christmas!

Well as I said before, this is a busy New Years for us. We're planning on heading out tomorrow (New Years Eve) and I am avoiding packing right now. which isn't the Best of Ideas. So I'll get back to it. I'll get better at this I swear! I love you all! Happy Holidays!

love, annie
