Weekend Recap

I had a wonderful weekend!  Friday night we went to dinner for the husband's birthday and then drove through the neighborhood and enjoyed all the beautiful Christmas lights.

The husband's birthday was actually on Saturday so he opted to wait to open his present until the morning.  Sammy loves watching her dad open presents.

I think she was hoping something would be for her.

During the day on Saturday we had Christmas lunch with the husband's mom, sister and our niece and nephew.  I was excited to set a pretty Christmas table.

I chose some of my grandmother's dishes with the green edges to go with my red place mats.

I think it turned out well.  I just wish I had put the plates on the chargers for this picture.  Next time.  :)

The husband and I served beef tender with roasted asparagus and mashed potatoes.  The sister-in-law brought petits fours from the fabulous Moeller's Bakery.  Yum.

They looked pretty one one of my grandmother's trays.

The kiddos got to open their Christmas presents from the husband and me.  We will be with my family in Mississippi on Christmas morning this year, so this was our Christmas morning with them.  I scored cool aunt points by picking out clothes that both kids were excited about.  Go me.

Jett said he is not going anywhere without this vest.  Good thing it is reversible.

Pretty in pink!

We also gave the kids the game Headbandz.  They loved it.

On Sunday the husband and I got massages and vegged out in front of football and A Charlie Brown Christmas.  We watch the DVD every year on the husband's birthday.


This week is going to be packed with work and celebration.  I can't believe Christmas is only a week away.  How did that happen!?

I hope you have a fantastic week!!
