Hello there, wow it's been a while! I'm glad that I'm off work all week since there is so much catching up to do. Not only with the blog but I have to clean house for our New Year's party, get my oil changed, and other stuff. Surely there are other things to do. Rather than writing a really long post about the holidays I'm going to keep it semi short with mostly pictures instead. They're more fun anyway!
Christmas Eve started with my first ever oats in a jar! Here is the pb I started with
I added oats, cinnamon, stevia, and apple butter. Cooked with about 1 cup hot water.
Yummy! When I was done, this was the cleanest pb jar to ever go in our recycling.
Now for the good stuff!
We spent Christmas Eve night at my parent's house. This has been a tradition for as long as I can remember. Here's a peak...
Lots of good food and company!
My FIL with the silly cat.
Good news! I'm going to be an aunt!! Me with my SIL who finally shared the news that she is 3 months pregnant.
(for those who didn't know, shhhh!)
And being silly with my mom
Christmas Day was also spent with my parents. We had too much fun opening gifts and trying on our new onion goggles that I forgot to take pictures. woops.
I was able to snap these of my parent's cute dog.
He loved the camera!
And I have to show off my Mom's favorite gift this year- Lenox Christmas china.
Saturday we spent the day with my in-laws and family. Once again I didn't get out the camera but we had a blast together. We laughed our butts off playing charades!
The entire weekend was wonderful and we couldn't have ask for a better time with our family and friends! I'll admit it's nice to be home and away from all the Christmas cookies though :) Now I have to get back on track.
I'm enjoying my morning coffee and Good Morning America this morning. I'll brave the cold weather for a run this afternoon.
I keep this mug out all year since it fits me so well... thanks Mom!
Well that's all for now but I'll be back with a Monday recap.
I hope that everyone had a wonderful holiday! Have a great day!!
