[ ♡ ] Christmas 2010Posted: December 27, 2010
I’ve been neglecting my blogging because I’ve been too busy with the holidays. This like, like every year, we went to my grandmas on Christmas eve to cook dinner and sleep over. We made some yummy turkey, beef roast, potatoes, macaroni and cheese and crepes! The crepes made me cough like crazy but they were so good I did not mind at all!
We also stayed up and played games with the cousins. We tried out the clue game that kay gave me for my birthday and gave up about 15 minutes in because it was just too hard to keep track of all the rules. We instead opted for charades which turned out quite fun! Damien played charades for the first time and was so into it even though he kept getting frustrated.
Then we all went to sleep and woke up the next morning to open gifts. My sister and cousin Michelle woke up extra early around 6 to put on makeup and do their hair so they would look nice for pictures lol! Michelle does this every year!
We’re actually pretty organized about opening our gifts. We make everyone sit in a circle and pick a spot on the ground. Then we hand out gifts and set them in piles around peoples spots. Then we go around the circle and each person opens one gift at a time until there is not more. The kids hate waiting to open their gifts but this way we can appreciate everyone’s gifts and also keep the trash organized. Here are some pictures:
After all the chaos, we went home to get ready and open gifts with our parents. Then we drove to other grandma’s house and opened gifts over there with my mom’s side of the family. I took some shots while waiting for the gifting to start.
I let my little cousin Natalie take pictures with my camera and here are some of her shots lol:
And finally here are some shots of what I got this year:
Here are some other ones:
And last but not least, the biggest secret I was hiding this year!
I’m so glad I found it and overall, this year was great!
