Christmas 2017 Recap

We went on a road trip the day after Christmas, so I never had a chance to write about our Christmas.  We went to church on Christmas Eve Sunday and my parents hosted Christmas Eve and Christmas.


As much as I appreciate a nicely wrapped gift, I just cannot be bothered.  Although this pile of presents may not look like much, they took forever to wrap (plus stocking stuffers not shown).


The faux fireplace on television is always fun to have on Christmas morning.


I bought these mini mugs at Crate & Barrel years ago, and the kids still use them!  Perfect for hot chocolate.


The only time you can find D in the kitchen is for breakfast on the weekends.  I really appreciate it, though!  My only contribution was “making” the cinnamon rolls from Trader Joe’s–pretty good!



Our artificial tree is a behemoth that takes up two boxes in the garage.  It was a hand-me-down from my sister and BIL.  D wants to downsize, but I would prefer to keep it until we really need a new one.  And yes, a tree skirt would be nice.  One of these days…


Some of my favorite ornaments!


Thank you Amazon, for making it easy for Grandma in Napa to send Christmas gifts to k and n!


You know a Christmas gift is good when it comes with safety goggles!


Christmas roast dinner prepared by my mom.  I am afraid that I will not be able to carry on this tradition!

So grateful to spend time with family in celebrating the birth of our Savior, Jesus Christ!
