It was a wonderful time spent with friends, and family, eating way too much food, being very spoiled, making lots of memories and just being together.
The trend of being super busy still continues so I'm just now finding time to write a few words about this great season.
This year, we spent Christmas Eve with hubby's family. We made the traditional pyrogies which everyone has come to look forward to! It was a bit difficult to get good pictures between my ever increasing slow movement and Audrey never stopping for a moment. Thankfully my SIL took over the camera for a bit so we have some pictures to documents the fun! (Thanks, L!)

Christmas Day morning was lots of fun! Due to the late night before, Audrey slept in till 8:30am!!
We took our traditional Christmas morning picture in front of the tree, wearing our new PJs that we got from Santa's elves the night before.
After we properly fueled up, we opened the rest of the gifts. Audrey was quite interested in the camera set up on the tripod and wanted a picture taken of her new indoor shoes, with pandas on them!

The middle of the day consisted of cleaning up and getting ready for Christmas dinner with my family. We hosted it this year for the first time. It definitely makes me appreciate all the years that others have hosted Christmas dinner since it's a lot of work! Thankfully hubby did most of the food prep while I got the house presentable and dealt with all the other non-food related prep.
Once everyone arrived, we feasted on hubby's hard work! The food was so good and I was seriously stuffed afterwards! I could barely move! My stomach just can't handle big meals anymore!

I'm so thankful that our families live close enough that we can celebrate Christmas with everyone each year. It might be a bit more hectic now that we have a little one but it's so fun and I love it!
Now for 2014!! I can't wait to see what this year brings!
Happy New Year!!
