Christmas 2013

I will go ahead and warn you this is going to be pretty lengthy.
I will start with Christmas Eve Eve. After work I headed to the mountains for the annual Ford Christmas party. They have been having this party for years and let me tell you, you will never go hungry. It is so much fun to just catch up with everyone that you don't get to see often. But this year there was a new little guy at the party.....
This time last year this bundle of joy was still in his mommies belly. Now seriously isn't he adorable!

I see a future model :)

But now that he is walking he is a quick little one. This is the best way to keep up with him ha.

After the party all the ladies went to our normal spot to really catch up, like always.

Days like this, reminds me how fabulous my bias are.

The next day, Christmas Eve, mom and I went shopping for our own family tradition. Every Christmas Eve we all split into teams and have a pizza making contest.

This year I introduced the cauliflower pizza crust. Let's just say the only people that liked it were the healthy eaters.

Team 1

Team 2

Team 3 (my sister is normally with me but she wasn't coming in until Christmas day)

Team 3 is just plan awesome!

The pizzas turned out yummy, I have to say it was the best cauliflower crust I had ever made.

That night we got in our comfy pj's and watched, It's a Wonderful Life. I still can't believe I had never watched it. I loved it, obviously. Then we all went to bed so that Santa could come.

The next morning it was odd because I was the only kid home. Everyone else was coming after lunch so I got the parentals all to myself for a little while.

But thennnnn my favorite little man got to town.

I have to watch or his grandparents will steal him and not give him back.

But since I had to leave early to go spend the rest of Christmas with the fiances family I got to hold him for a while.

After everyone got home, it was my favorite time. PRESENT TIME!!!

Carter got to go first. Well because he is most important.
The fiancee picked out this shirt, of course it's Ralph Lauren.

He loved all his toys but most of all I think he loved the paper the presents came in. I think next year I will just get him a box of wrapping paper.

But all this present opening wore this little man out. So I gave him some kisses and he went off to nap.

We then finished up with all of our presents.

After we finished I hugged everyone and thanked them for my fabulous presents and headed off to spend the rest of Christmas with the fiance's family.
Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Never forget the reason for the season!!
