So Christmas came and went, can you believe it, it's already past us by. I know I can't. I wish I could live it all over again. Not for the gifts, though they were all greatly appreciated, and boy did our kiddos get spoiled. But for the family time; which is always so important to us. I can't help by be a bit saddened that our months of preparations and planning have now come to an end. Let me explain... this year was extra special for us all! My parents had started planning over the summer to join us for Christmas and after their flights where situated, the mister and I got to planning out own little Christmas surprise. You should have seen the look on my parents face when they went into our garage (a few days before Christmas) to so-called "help bring presents inside" and opened the door to my brothers and gf which would all be joining us. It was pure and uttery happiness, and yes I cried over it with the excitement that we could all be here together as a family for the Holidays. It still makes me tear up thinking about how awesome it all was, cause before this, we hadn't had a holiday together (the parents and us kids) since I was in college somewhere over 12 years ago. I hope you all had a fabulous holidays, spent with the ones you love. Please be warned that this is a bit of a photo heavy post. Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!
