What a nice Holiday I had! I really enjoyed that Christmas fell on the weekend this year. I was fortunate enough to be able to spend the holidays with my family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The weather was beautiful and warm; we didn’t get any snow, so that made traveling quick and easy.
Christmas Eve morning was spent with my Dad, step-mom and youngest brother. We had brunch at their house and played a few holiday games. In the evening we traveled to my husband’s cousin’s house for Christmas carols and a nice dinner. Late Christmas Eve night we arrived home to enjoy some time alone and with our dogs.
Christmas day we got up early and went over to my in-laws house. My mother in law made a delicious new pecan French toast recipe. We opened our traditional party poppers and exchanged a few gifts. After cleaning up my husband and I headed over to my mom’s house were we saw my brothers and my cousins. We had a nice traditional Christmas ham dinner. The men moved to the couch to watch the Chicago Bears Play football and the women played a trivia game.
Everyone loved their personalized notes and notepad gifts. And everyone noticed the personalized gift enclosure cads. This year I went with the monogrammed gift enclosures on ivory paper. They were beautiful and we got lots of compliments. I even have a few personalized cards left over that we plan on using this New Year on our gift favors.
Wishing you a Happy New Year 2012 !
