So the Sunday before Christmas, we had lunch with Reagan's Nana. She made delicious food and we had a great family afternoon watching the Cowboys game and opening presents. After time with family was over, we rushed to the grocery store to grab and appetizer (which took almost 45 minutes since Christmas Eve was the next day and the lines were crazy) to take to our friends Christmas party that was that same night! Good food, friends, and a fire pit... what could be a better way to celebrate the holiday's?!
Monday morning, we both got to sleep in and be lazy since it was Christmas Eve and Reagan did not have to be at the office. We made breakfast together... waffles.. mmm so good. We watched movies and stayed in our pj's all day and wrapped presents. It was such a nice and lazy time together and I loved every minute of it. We hardly ever get that much time to just slow down and do nothing but be with each other. Though, once the presents had been wrapped we were off to get dressed and head to Reagan's dad's house to celebrate Christmas with them on Christmas Eve Night. We had a yummy Italian dinner.. (my favorite) and opened gifts and just hung out. It was nice and chill... just what I needed to end my day.
Oh, and that night we found out some EXCITING news!!! One of our sweet couple friends are expecting their first baby! We are so excited for them and cannot wait to meet their precious bundle of joy. Love you bunches Teri and Nate!!!
On Christmas Morning as soon as we woke up I felt like the day was going to be a blur. We got dressed quickly to head over to Reagan's mom's house to celebrate Christmas with them.. which included brunch and opening presents. I honestly forget sometimes what it is like to be a kid on Christmas morning. Reagan's little sisters were so excited when we got to their house they could hardly sit still. It was fun to be a part of their excitement and remember the magic of Christmas for a child! For brunch, it was eggs benedict and homemade cinnamon rolls (a tradition that is oh so good). Then we opened gifts and listened to the girls squeal with excitement after every present they opened, and we finished the morning with them by doing the annual Christmas scavenger hunt. The one thing I love about Christmas with Reagan's mom... there are a lot of traditions they do each year and I love hearing the meaning behind each one. After our time with their family we headed home to grab gifts for my parents and headed over to their house. Every year my parents do a big Christmas dinner and we open presents and play games with The Roy Family once they come over. I love this part of the day... good food, great company, and lots of memories. The food was delicious as always, the games were crazier than ever, and the laughter and friendship filled the house. It was a wonderful day and I was grateful that we were able to celebrate with everyone!
To say the least, we had many wonderful Christmas celebrations. Yes it was so busy going from house to house and here, there and everywhere!! But... as I reflect on those couple of days that is what makes it the best... Being able to spend the Holiday's with ALL our family because everyone is back in Texas. That is definitely something to treasure and be grateful for.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and is enjoying time with family and friends.
From our Family to Yours... Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
