A Very Merry Christmas

Head over to 5 Minutes for Mom for the Christmas 2010 Link-up!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas! We spent Christmas Eve at my mom's house. It's the first time I have seen her since the last of her hair came out (from chemo treatments). I wasn't prepared for that. But, she was in good spirits, and we had a wonderful time opening presents and eating a big lunch including an apple pie our daughter made from scratch.


We also went to the Christmas Eve Candlelight Service at church. Beautiful, as always. The kids aren't bad-looking, either!
On Christmas Day, the kids were up fairly early even though they're not little anymore. I guess everyone is excited on Christmas! We opened gifts, then we went to my in-laws' house where there was a pretty big gathering. It's a tradition for my father-in-law to cook Christmas breakfast. This year, my brother-in-law did most of the cooking, though. We had a fun time eating and opening gifts.Once we got home, it was time for my Christmas nap! A few hours later, we headed over to my husband's aunt's house for a big family gathering, a wonderful dinner, and some karaoke Christmas music. It was a blessed Christmas. How was your holiday?

It looks like you had a wonderful Christmas with your family. It's so nice to have your family so close.
It's tough for us having our family spread out, my one wish for Christmas 2011 would be for all of us to be together. We have kids in Connecticut and Texas and my hubby's sister is in Massachusettes. Thanks for stopping by my blog, you have a lovely family - ours is blended also so I totally get the difficulties. Wishing you a very happy new year!!
