CV and I hosted Christmas this year for his family....
So that meant our guest room, my office (air mattress) and the couch were completely occupied for a week! Oddly enough - I took zero pictures of any people/festivities/games/etc. I literally stepped away from the camera and just enjoyed everyone's company.
Except for the few pictures I took of Paisley in front of the Christmas Tree.
(I've been a bad photographer/blogger this holiday!)
On Christmas Eve, we went to CV's aunts & uncles house to celebrate. His entire family celebrates together - so it was fun to chat and catch up with everyone, and play a fun dirty Santa game! We usually go out of town for the holidays so we've never been able to take part in all the family fun, so I'm glad we were in town this year. (again, no pictures) :(
On Christmas Day, CV made a delish breakfast, lunch and dinner!! We had filets for dinner topped with shrimp (I had salmon since I can't eat undercooked meat) and it was fabulous! We had the traditional ham/green beans/casseroles,etc the night before, so it was nice to have a fancy meal that wasn't so traditional for Christmas.
The morning after Christmas we all went to the Woodhouse Day Spa for massages! I got a prenatal massage and it was amazing!! And the rest of our day was pretty amazing too...but that's another post!! (hint hint: gender reveal!!) :)
We had tons of lovely Christmas décor in every room of the house...but this one is probably my favorite. It greeted everyone who came to our door! :)
I also made a hanging basket for our front porch filled with evergreens and juniper berries! It was so much fun to make.
And happily my friend EJ from L.A. was in town for the holidays - so we met up for an evening of hanging out and grabbed some pizza with some friends. I love her and miss her every day! (Come back to Ohio please!!!)
And of course there was the exchanging of gifts! CV got me the Kate Spade wallet I've been wanting...and a prenatal yoga DVD that I really wanted too! And there were tons of other amazing gifts flying around - and even some for little Baby Vollat too, which was the most fun to open! :)
Hope everyone had a great Christmas holiday.
