Christmas In Photos

For the past 11 or so years, my family gets all dressed up and goes out to dinner for Christmas Eve. It is one of my favorite Christmas traditions!



Dinner usually lasts about three hours, and Lizzy did so well, even though she was up WAY past her bedtime!


(my sister and I)

Then, we spent the night at my parent's house on Christmas Eve. In the morning, I made monkey bread.


And we opened some presents



Then, we headed back to our house, got Lizzy down for a bit, and hung out at home for a little while. Usually, we open presents to each other, but Justin and I had exchanged gifts earlier in the week (he gave me a gift certificate to get my hair cut, and I gave him a book of DIY boudoir photos). We were so blessed with gifts to Lizzy this year that Justin and I decided we would keep the two bigger gifts that we had purchased for her birthday, so we really only gave her a stocking this year...which was totally fine.

After being at home for a couple of hours, we headed to Justin's parent's house for Christmas dinner. It was a great time, and unfortunately, I have NO photos...I don't know what I was thinking! 

We got home shockingly early (around 8pm!) and thankfully got Lizzy to bed. I went for a run, and then we watched A-Team (well, Justin watched A-Team and I fell asleep).
On Sunday, my parents came over and we lounged around watching the Colts game. Lizzy LOVES to watch football: 


She also checked out some of her new Christmas gifts:



It was a great weekend. I feel so blessed--I have an amazing family, and amazing friends!
