Christmas in a Nutshell.

We had an amazing Christmas this year. Our Christmas eve was busy and full of family.

Brent’s mom holds a Mexican Christmas eve party each year. We have enchiladas, tacos, beans, and of course chips and salsa.


I got some baby love from my sweet new nephew.


All the cousins made our traditional Christmas. I’m always surprised with the amount of creativity each year.  Most of the sleighs had rockets connected to them. Ha!


It is also tradition to do a pinata on Christmas eve. My MIL is building a new house so we were able to get out of the snow this year and go for it inside.

After Christmas eve at Brent’s mothers party we headed to my mom’s side of the family. I am so happy that my sisters and I are able to still have this party every year. I know my mom would want it that way and she is missed at every one.

It is my families tradition to have crab every year! I LOVE this tradition. Mainly because I love CRAB!

After dinner we play a pictionary and “what’s in the stocking” game before opening presents.

Its pretty funny to guess everything and gets a little crazy at times.

Christmas morning came and it was nothing but smiles from these kiddos.

After enjoying the early morning at our house we headed over to my Dads for Christmas Breakfast. We had German Pancakes, fruit and egg nog.


We had an amazing Christmas, celebrating our savior and spending time with our loved ones. I don’t think it could have been more perfect. It goes by so quickly, I really tried to savor every moment of the day.
