Christmas Day!

Christmas Day Christmas Day  

Tuesday December 25, 2012

Here's a look at all the fun we had on Christmas day!! Oh, how I love Christmas! It is such a special time to get the whole family together and celebrate. I love each and every one of the members of my family and I'm so grateful to have them in my life.

We started the day off by having a delicious breakfast all together. Everything was absolutely scrumptious and you could feel all the excitement in the air.

Then we proceeded to admire our Christmas tree and all of the lovely presents underneath. As usual, my parents outdid themselves on the presents. Everything was just fantastic!

It was so much fun to open presents, but even funner to watch other people open their presents. I love seeing the smile on other peoples' faces when they just open a present and see it for the first time. Well, actually, I just like seeing other people smile ;)

It was a wonderful Christmas as it always is. The best part of it all was having the whole family together. I'm so blessed to have such a wonderful family ;)

  1. Awee Marie, these photos are so lovely! They really do evoke that family time togetherness which Christmas is supposed to bring. Super awesome memories, for real! :) I'm glad that your Christmas was so very perfect--it sure looks like it. And your tree looks stuffed (is that a Disney calander I spot? Love it!).

    Hehehe, I love you guys' matching cups, too!

  36. Oh my, I LOVE this post! I love how Christmassy your family's house is, your outfit looks amazing (the headband is too cute!), your Christmas tree is just lovely, so many beautifully gift-wrapped presents... Ah, I'm getting all excited about Christmas again, while we still have to wait for another 350 days or something, haha! :p

    And is that the Thomas Kinkade Disney Calendar I spot?! I LOVE IT! I ordered it, but I got an e-mail it had gone out of stock at the last minute :( I really need to find another place where I can buy it, I looooove Thomas Kinkade's Disney work!

    ReplyDelete
  37.  Thank you Annabelle!! Yeah, my parents really go all out for Christmas. Most of the presents are small little things like our favorite candies, or socks, or stuff like that. And then there are a couple that are the big presents! So its fun to open them all up and see what they are... hehe. Thanks for stopping by!

    ReplyDelete
  38.  Aaaawww, I'm soooo happy to see that you liked this Christmas post so much Jody!!! Yeah, I wish it was Christmas again right now! hehehe.

    Why yes, that is indeed the Thomas Kinkade Disney Calendar!!! I'm in looooove with his Disney art, I even ordered several of his pieces to decorate my room. I'm so sorry to hear that they ran out of stock. I purchased mine on Amazon, have you checked to see if they have any in stock!?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ah, that's amazing! Which pieces did you order? I've been thinking about doing the same, but I first need to convince my boyfriend :p I'll check Amazon, thanks for the tip! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hi Jody!! I just realized that I never saw this reply message from you until now. I'm soooo sorry I didn't respond! To answer your questions, I ordered 5 of the square Thomas Kinkade Disney paintings: Princess and the frog, sleeping beauty, cinderella, beauty and the beast, and I think the fifth was snow white. They were all actually presents from different members of my family since they are kind of pricey. I have them stored in a box waiting for the day I can put them up on my wall. Can't wait! Did you ever find the Thomas Kinkade for Disney calendar?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Oh, it's fine, I can completely understand you sometimes get a bit caught up in all the replies you get on your blog! :)Wow, I'm so jealous! It's amazing you got 5 of the Thomas Kinkade Disney paintings! I can't wait to see a picture of your place when you managed to put them up, it will be a lovely Disney room <3

    I actually ordered the calendar at another place, but then got another message it wasn't in stock anymore :'( Instead I got this other Disney desk calendar, which tells you something about a scene of a Disney film every day, so that's really nice as well! :) But I am definitely getting that Thomas Kinkade calendar for 2014, even if it's the last thing I do, haha :p
