Christmas with the Family

Dec 26, 2011

This year Christmas came and went so fast! We had a wonderful Christmas. It was a little stressful and a little crazy at times but overall it was fabulous. We were all spoiled rotten and watching Sterling open his gifts was priceless. My mom busted out these napkins last night and I could not stop laughing- so true!

This year, I drank way too many of these. Lord I love a dirty martini.

Ate so many sweets I swear I gained 5lbs but I am avoiding the scale til I feel skinny again. (check back tomorrow for the recipe for this amazing sweet treat, you don’t want to miss it!).

And loved watching the joy in my little man’s face. Children really make Christmas that much more special. He was so excited about all his gifts, he absolutely loved Christmas. Santa brought him this new red electric car that he is obsessed with! Watch out if you live near us, Sterling is a speed demon in his car!

I hope you all had a very merry holiday season with your families! xoxo
