Christmas/New Years- Recap

It was such a nice break to take almost 2 weeks off and hang out with my family and friends.

Christmas Eve:
I worked until 4 pm, made a reservation for 5 pm for Chinese food, this is the first christmas that we were alone with out our parents etc - we wanted to make new traditions and this was decently one of them, we will do this one for a long time, the food was so fresh, the buffet plentiful and the company made me happy ;)
After we ate we decided to go to 2 light shows, they were both nice but the first one was much more popular and it was busy, here is a link. We also went to visit some friends and drop of their christmas cards. Came home, Brooke always opens a present on Christmas Eve from my brother and his girlfriend, this year they got her Giraffe print  PJ's, the kid loves Giraffe's
After Brooke went to bed, Santa came ;)

Christmas Day
We woke up around 8 to open presents, Brooke was so excited, we got her a 5ft giraffe that was sitting beside the tree, which made her day, she was so happy.
She also got a laptop, clothes, more giraffe's boots, paris related stuff for her room, giraffe blanket
 she was is  spoiled.
Hubby spoiled me too- I got a gorgeous Boston jersey, Boston watch, beautiful camera, shoes, clothes, office stuff.

I got him a new wedding band as his original is to small for him, clothes, hot sauce( he loves it) books.
We had friends come for lunch, I made a full turkey dinner, I love to entertain and host, they brought their adorable 5 month old

this little guy makes me smile, he loves his Auntie Terri <3

Boxing day:
We went to visit friends that are more like family, we had a great visit, got spoiled more, Brooke had a great time hanging out with their daughter, the mom use to babysit me when I was younger ( much) and now we are the closest friends <3

New Year's Eve
I had to work til 5 pm, no biggie, it wasnt busy at all.
We had a church pot luck and a candle lite service, it was a nice time. The pot luck had so much delicious food, then we played some games, went to bed just after midnight after getting my New Years Kiss for the 17 year :)

New Years Day
Friends from church invited us over for a ham lunch, we ate lots of yummy food, played games, met new people, laughed a lot :)
