Weekend Rumination {Christmas Edition 2015}

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone enjoyed a wonderful Christmas weekend!  A quick little recap here before we start prepping for the New Years festivities!

Brandon and I started a tradition a few years back of getting Christmas Eve pajamas to wear as we celebrate Christmas Eve night at home.  This year I added our monograms to make them a little more special.

Our tree went ornament-less this year due to a light string that didn’t work and a busy holiday season.  There is something about the simplicity that I really loved.

Found this gem of a picture at my parent’s house from the December I was born.  I am pretty sure this needs to be framed and added the Christmas holiday decor next year.

Brandon had to work Christmas day this year.  He left the house bright and early, so after watching my nephews open presents at my sister and brother-in-laws with the family, the boys and I headed over to visit with Uncle Brandon and the other firefighters.  Gabriel, the oldest, had a blast seeing all the trucks and getting a chance to ride inside.  Jack, on the other hand, may be the only 4-year old in history to be entirely unamused with the whole thing.  There is a playground in the park right beside the firehouse and once Jack saw the slides and swings he was dead set on getting a chance to play and wanted nothing to do with the lights and sirens.

So after a quick visit (and a stop at the playground) we headed back to my parent’s house to open presents and have Christmas dinner.

The most popular present under the tree was the pie face game!  A simple concept and a can of whipped cream had everyone laughing so hard!

Dinner had a table full of family and friends and was a great ending to a very merry Christmas!

I hope you and yours had a very merry Christmas too!  Now back to a short week and goal setting for a whole new year to make wonderful!

What was your favorite part of Christmas?  And have you played the pie face game yet?!?
