The past three days have been full on family get togethers and fun! On Christmas Eve I headed to my Aunt and Uncle’s house, to celebrate a very special birthday. It was awesome to see my cousins…it’s rare we are all in the same spot at the same time. Thanks for the wonderful evening…it was great to see you!
Christmas Day was so much fun! My nephews handed out all the gifts… then the craziness began.
This holiday I found an awesome shop from the states, Blue Q. This online store has heaps of awesome items. I got my family some ‘piggy banks’ and some “lavatory mists”…check them out… The Cheese Cutter, Baby’s Head Smell, Fanny Rosebottom’s, Jack the Ripper and Abe Lincoln’s Log! (check out to the backs of the bottles and the descriptions…) Blue Q were so helpful in doing my order, and it came in 2 days!
Dinner was awesome. It was a team effort…I stuffed the turkey and put in the oven. I pealed potatoes until I pealed off a good chunk of finger along with a potato peal. Kat and John helped with checking on the turkey and putting the casseroles in the oven, while Dana made the ‘candy’ (Squash)….then Jamie did the carving. My mum was very helpful, she directed from the dining room table in all steps of the process. But it was such a fun day!
Boxing Day…we went to visit my Gramma and Bart. They have the most awesome sets of Christmas Villages!!! It was so much fun to see them all the village lit up. Bart has been collecting pieces to villages for years. It was awesome to sit and hear the stories about where pieces were picked up! My Gramma has made stories about what all the people are doing at in the scenes. This display is something they add to, and keep it set up year round now! Thanks for sharing your villages with us…
It’s been a very fun Christmas so far…and family time isn’t over yet! Currently as I type this we are starting some family trivia… it’s hilarious, I need to get in this game. Until the next time…hope you are all having a fabulous holiday filled with fun family times!
