I promise to be up and writing about health and fitness again, soon, but right now I want to share my last day of Christmas Celebrations.
As I briefly talked about, my dad’s family has always celebrated Christmas on the 26th. We love getting together, and having Christmas last just a bit longer. Our day usually starts at 3, and up until about 5 or 6 years ago, it was always celebrated at my Grandmas. Since she was placed in a nursing home, and since passed, my aunt and uncle have taken over, and this year another one of my aunts and uncles decided to host. It was a blast, as usual, so let’s get to some pictures.
We ate lots. This wasn’t near what they had, but I was too busy stuffing my mouth to get any more pictures There was also a dinner with some kind of meat, ham, mac and cheese, cheesy potatoes, salad, and fruit!
We laughed, and had fun with each other.
We hung out with my cousin’s adorable kids. These would be like 1/5 of all my cousins kids. There are many, many!
We do grab bag every year on this side. However, you have to either 1) be married, or 2) be 25 to participate. That meant Aaron and I were in it this year! Not only did we have a great time getting out gifts, we both received awesome ones (sweater and scarf for me, and mini tool bag and kit for him). Unfortunately, due to the whole postal service being behind deal, my mom and Aunt Jeanie didn’t get their gifts! This year was an “off” year in that most of the out of towners weren’t in (they do every other year), but they were still in grab bag! We Facetimed, though, and they both found out what their presents were. It was too funny that they were the only ones in the room without a gift! haha My cousin felt terrible, but they really should have been there on time!
It was a fantastic day, and a perfect end to our Christmas celebrations!
