Christmas this year was magical! I spent last Christmas in the hospital, if you can remember, so to be home again this year with my very own baby girl and husband to spoil, I just felt so lucky and in love.
We started off Christmas Eve with some last minute shopping and baking and then I helped Evie open one of her gifts before we got ready to leave for the evening. She happened to choose the perfect present to open first and got her new Christmas dress and sweater. How convienient!
|she has been pulling and tugging on and eating that christmas tree non-stop all month and i can't lie, i don't think it will make it to new years day.|
Christmas Eve this year was spent with my family dining on prime rib and mashed potatoes, exchanging gifts and acting out the nativity with a few hilarious performances by my brothers.

|i made those peppermint brownie cookies that seemed to be floating around pinterest non-stop. they were delicious, in case you were wondering.|
|the wise men enter and andy puts on a show-stopping performance complete with singing and m&m's for baby jesus. he kills us.|
We opened Christmas jams, took some family pics and then headed downstairs to wrap up the night with a little family rock band before we headed home to put our little one to bed.
I dare say I love Christmas Eve even more than I love Christmas day.
Hope yours was equally merry and bright!
