A Family Filled Christmas

Sunday, December 29, 2013

I finally have all the pictures so I can share some of my favorite things from this Christmas! 
First of all, just spending it with Mom, Dad, Matt and Grandparents was the best. Mom came up for this awesome week last year but I was definitely missing everyone else! It was great having Pa and Grandma with us too, pealing pecans, sharing stories, and enjoying time together. We, of course, did multiple Christmas light looking trips, watched a Christmas movie, and typical Christmasy things. I spent time with Papa and Mimi on Christmas Eve since I had to leave early Sunday. Christmas Eve dinner couldn't have been tastier and I always love Mom's breakfast casseroles. More things to add to a Florida Christmas would be having fresh squeezed orange juice on Christmas morning from our Backyard Oranges. Listening to Dad play Christmas songs on the piano is always a favorite. We ended the morning with some football before I had to leave for work. 

I was glad I "had" to work on Christmas to be able to spend it with these girls. Coming to work Christmas night to these sweet, smiling girls was totally worth it, and we ended the night driving around to look at lights. The best part about it was hearing a quiet request from the back of the van to dance on the beach. Finding it was from shyest girl here that never asks for anything, I said we had to do it then!
Great end to the day. 

Love my Pa and Grandma!

 Watching Papa light up when he got his sentimental train running. After around 20 years, it takes a little extra work, but it's still chugging. 
Dad playing piano... Always a Christmas favorite...
