A Few of my FAVORITE Things

I LOVE Christmas time. Everything from the tree, to the shopping, to fun nights with my family, to wrapping and cooking, and of course the reason for the season – Jesus’ birthday and that spiritual renewal that comes with this time of year.

I have so many highlights from this holiday like Christmas Eve church service; watching “Elf” with Husband and the kids; and not charging ONE gift this year – this is the first time I was CASH only (thanks Dave Ramsey); there’s too many to name but I figured I’d share a few pics of my FAVORITES with you.

My family. Hanging out Christmas Eve, too excited to sleep!

Husband – he’s one of my FAVORITE things all year round.

My niecey-pie! Is she just not the cutest? She's rockin' the tam and representing the rest of my family - my Mom, Dad, Grandma, Mother-in-law, Sister and Brother-in-law! (If one of them emails me pics I'll added them to the post - gasp!)

My mom gave Husband the Charlie Brown tree. Classic.

Our real tree Christmas morning.

Husband Santa left these in my stocking. Tennis and Running. He knows me so well.

My mother gave me these. Um, what is she trying to say? Ahem.

My dad gave Husband and my brother-in-law this. Again, with the beer? This might be my favorite gift and its not even mine.

My sister gave me a subscription to Runner’s World. Her and her tech savvy husband created this mock magazine cover to surprise me. LOVE it!

My table. Every year we have table gifts instead of regular place-cards.

It was a white Christmas in Atlanta for the first time in years so you know we had to get out and play in the snow.

Me and Milan having a blast.

You’ve got to have hot chocolate after an afternoon of snow!

We thawed out and played Just Dance 2 on Wii.

Miles hooking it up. My silly children – they actually thought they would beat me.

It was a wonderful weekend filled with family, friends and fun. Oh, did I mention food? Yes, it was filled with that, too. So much that I’m ready to get back to my healthy habits TODAY.

I LOVE you mac & cheese (you're a FAVORITE, too), but you’ve GOT TO GO!

Winks & Smiles,
