I have to give my SIL credit, she decorated her house beautifully.

We got a lot of wonderful gifts from his family. His mother and I apparently share a brain since her and I bought several duplicate gifts including a makeup case for my niece, an ornament using the same exact photo for my SIL and almost identical headbands for my other niece. I think next year we'll need to compare notes while shopping.
Christmas morning Kristian and I woke up bright and early and exchanged our gifts. I got him a bunch of smaller gifts including the Katy Perry CD (she is #1 on his "Free Pass List"), a Shutterfly calendar with pictures of our cats (I made him one last year and he loved it), an ornament and the Walkie Talkies he wanted. I swear I married a 12 year old stuck inside a man's body.
And he got me one "big" gift which was a beautiful green Coach wallet. Apparently I needed an upgrade from my Target wallet I've had for years.
After we opened gifts I started cooking the sweet potato casserole and mac n cheese I planned to take to my brother's house. Fortunately the snow held off and we were able to make it up to MD to see my family.
*Kristian and my mom. Yes he's wearing the same sweater as the night before. He has decided this is now his official Christmas sweater*
*Here we are with one of my brother's two daughters. My other niece was too busy playing with the toys Santa brought her for pictures*
We ate a ton of food and once again we got some great gifts from my side of the family including my new Redskins Jersey. Yes I know they suck
all the time right now, but I'll always be a fan!
*Here I am on Sunday and they actually WON! Maybe I brought them good luck!*
Unfortunately due the snow that the Eastern shore of MD got hit with our gathering with Kristian's extended family got postponed from Sunday to this coming weekend which gives me more time to practice for the tournament.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend.
