let me first say that it should be made mandatory to have the week off after christmas. one day to spend with family just isn't enough sometimes. christmas eve and christmas day were awesome! i had such a great time
at both family celebrations. both different and both excellent in their
own ways :)
the night before the festivities, i decided to do some festive nails, this is my rendition.
my brother makes the yummiest appetizers: trix, tuna, chedder cheese topped with a jalapeno. pop those bad boys in the oven and way-la! they literally do not last long when put out.
we played a couple of rounds of scattergories and can you believe this was our first holiday picture as a family? after desert tom and i headed up north to his parents house and called it a night.
we woke up super early on sunday and got down to it! we were all still pretty much asleep, clemie-buns face is priceless and bowie-man's just cracks me up.
kelly-anne made me this deer hat that i had been drooling over for a while and it is so awesome! she loved it so much she made one for herself too! aren't we so cute, hehe. she makes other really awesome hats and when her shop opens up again, you should check em out! what you also can't see is she made me a lace collar and i love it!
we hand make most of our presents and almost every year tom does a drawing for everyone. i showed you what he made us and this is the rest of the family. they turned out so perfect, he is just so amazing!
we got clemie a bamboo log cabin and the men trying to built it. it came with no instructions but they finally got it :) i think they liked it more then she did. hehe
we sat around watching movies in our pj's for the rest of the day and then it was dinner time, dave's famous tacos! tom made him a sign for christmas so we could keep track of how many taco's we eat. the rest of the night was filled with champagne drinking and the boys playing a couple rounds of trivial pursuit and then it was nightie night for us.
i had to work early today so tom's dad made us breakfast and coffee and then were on our way. tom has been saving money for a surfboard and he came back to the shop to surprise me with our newest addition :) now for a wetsuit and we can catch those winter swells! here we come santa cruz!!!!!!!
