I know, I have been a negligent blogger as of late. I was also a pretty bad Christmas vacation photographer. But I have lots of memories and warm moments to share.
It all started way back last week. I had to pack up all my presents and fly them with me to Boston. It probably would have been easier to wrap them when I got there, but I’m a sucker for wrapping up surprises.
That gnome wrapping paper was from Ikea about four years ago. I FINALLY used it all up this year!
All packed up and ready to go! Thank goodness for Southwest’s free baggage allowance!
A few of my friends and I have a tradition of getting together for breakfast on Christmas Eve day. This year, we were also joined by the gorgeous baby Harper!
She’s at a fun smiley age now. I was in love.
Katie, me, Harper and Shelby!
I already miss all of them!
Then I spent the afternoon hanging out with my sisters, wrapping more presents and getting ready for Christmas Eve! My whole family and all the cousins head to my grandparents house. Now that everyone is getting older, it’s so much fun.
We’re also pretty big on photoshoots. HAHA
forced invited the boys to join in too!
We also have a weird side!
We sang lots of Christmas Carols before we ate!
We had a great buffet for dinner. Everyone brought something. Since our family is Lebanese, we always have amazing middle eastern food.
It was so nice to be with my sisters!!
Two of my favorite gifts to give this year….
The Golf Sweater T-Shirt!
And our 2010 Vancouver Olympics jacket that we picked up in February in the Olympic Village!
Merry Christmas Eve!!
