Merry Christmas EVE!

Merry Christmas all! It has been such a wonderful Christmas Eve. Unfortunately, like most, I had to work this morning. But the salon was busy, so the work day came and went. We are spending the night over at my dad's house. My whole family was here tonight. Brittany and her friend Tiffany, drove up from Vegas this morning. Kalie & Jesse came over and Robyn & Jarron stopped by for a bit as well. When we're together, there is A LOT of noise and some yelling. All good of course!!! We always have such a good time. Getting the family together is one of my favorite memories and past times. We had a wonderful dinner, thank you dad. APRICOT CHICKEN!! Yummy! There was a good game of Apples to Apples as well - can't wait for the rematch tomorrow! We've had a few Christmas movies on in the background. Home Alone 1 & 2, Mickey's Christmas Carol and believe it or not Havana Nights. (Don't know where that one came from...but hey, its 11:30pm...)

But now we are up wrapping presents and sharing some good times. Kalie & Jesse and Robyn & Jarron have headed home, to get their kids in bed. Santa's coming!!! And the rest of us are listening to Havana Nights, wrapping gifts or jamming to Rock Band downstairs. The rest of us are having 1 big sleep over. Joe & I, Andee & KJ, plus Brittany & Tiffany, and Jessica, Dad & Nancy!!!! I love this time of year! I love my family and all the good times we've had! Joe and I are so lucky...we both have such loving families. Plus, we get Grandma's quiche in the morning - HECK YES!!!!

Happy Holidays to everyone! I'm just psyched for tomorrow and I hope you all are as well. I wish you all a VERY MERRY Christmas!

I must go...we're now putting in The Hangover....where did the Christmas movies go? Oh well, I'm up for some more laughter!! Good night - and hope you've been good....Santa knows it!

Love to all!!!

I made gingerbread people!!! That was my one and only holiday indulgence. Its tradition in my family to make toffee or sugar cookies...well I started my own tradition! A ginger kid making more GINGERS!!! Not homemade unfortunately, I used a mix, but I decorated each and every one all by myself!

I made about 3 dozen, so I don't have lots to pass out - but you just might get one!!!
