Anyway, as I've already mentioned in a previous post, we got a new Christmas tree this year that replaced what we call our Charlie Brown tree (it was a good starter tree!).
I baked this year... but I have a confession to make. They weren't from scratch as I usually make my Christmas cookies from. They were tube bought... ::shrugs:: I wasn't feeling the whole baking thing this year but the cookies turned out great (they were delicious!) and I decorated them myself.
Here are some pictures from Christmas 2010!!
|Me and my little sister, Tara|
|Tamales for Christmas Eve dinner -- Thanks to my Aunt's Mexican heritage :)|
|Jake was Santa's helper.|
|There were soooo many stockings Christmas morning!|
|The tree and all the presents!|
|The other half of the presents -- and my cousin waiting patiently for everyone to wake up so that they could open presents!|
|View of the pool and lake on Christmas morning from my Aunt and Uncle's house.|
|Jake and I Christmas morning in our Christmas PJs <3|
|My Uncle telling the kids the Christmas Story. We then proceeded to sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. Such a sweet moment.|
|This is how Jake labeled all of my presents he got for me -- each one differently of course. lol.|
|Jake didn't believe the chaos that pursues with my side of the family. There is wrapping paper and gifts everywhere. Really, it's pure craziness!!|
It was a good Christmas :) Can't wait to celebrate with the other side of the family next year. Which will be fitting as our first Christmas as husband and wife!! yay!!
