Christmas Wrap Up

I hope this post finds you filled with joy after the holiday season.
Ours was filled with lots of cheer and family time

Christmas Eve is always spent at my dad's mom's house
Nan and DB's
This year we had 2 new additions to the family
My cousin and his wife just had Rylan, December 8th
She's just a little peanut
and it was also Palmer's first christmas, who is 2 months old
and Palmer's sister, Addison
After Christmas at Nan's we all head to the 11pm church service

Christmas morning we woke up and had Justin's parents over for breakfast and to exchange gifts
After breakfast, we headed down to Justin's cousin's house in Lancaster to celebrate another Christmas
and then back to my parents house for my immediate family Christmas
on our way back to my parents house, I turned to Justin and asked how Santa does it all.. because I was EXHAUSTED!
My dad is probably one of the biggest rudolph fans out there
{which I didn't know until I came home from college one year, and I declared I was home, and he said.. shhh rudolph is on! who knew that he liked rudolph SO much}
so when I saw this bumble sucker I had to get it for him and add it to the top of his gift
{yukon cornelius is from his co-workers this year}
even Lily dressed up for the holiday
My sister and brother in law received an ice cream attachment for their mixer as one of their wedding gifts, and we have been fortunate enough for Alli to make us home made ice creams twice thus far.
Christmas dinner she made a peppermint ice cream with dark chocolate brownies!
Hello heavenly! seriously!
Last Christmas Justin, my mom, dad and I went bowling with several other family members after Christmas dinner, and this year was no different, except Alli and Doug were able to join us
my dad wore this shirt!
I about died when he pulled this shirt out, it was given to him by his neighbor across the street. The neighbor was about 80 and he gave him the shirt in 1983 {i'm pretty sure its safe to say this shirt is every bit of 50+ years old!}.. it was his favorite bowling shirt and he wanted my dad to have it!
I'm so thankful he has held onto it all this time!

I sure do hope you had as much fun and family time as we did!
