Christmas Day

Lets see we got home at about 12:30 am and an hour later we were opening presents. Now don't freak out it was Christmas morning after all. We started with the doggy presents. Here are just a few images from our very early Christmas morning. Frankie got his hat, coat, new jeans, work shirts and ties, a Broncos watch and, thanks to Amber, a gorgeous Burberry dress watch, and a bunch of other stuff. On my list of favorites a Coach wallet to match my purse, also thanks to Amber - more clothes, detailing for my car, Juicy perfume, and best of all my black Tahitian pearl earrings. Yeah!!! On top of all that we got spoiled by our families. Tom and Kalyn got us new luggage for our travels this year, plus clothes, awesome gift certs, and cool car kits.

Christmas Eve

Every Christmas Eve, on my dad's side of the family, we make chicken noodle soup. Actually not we, just my dad makes it. Look at the cute bowls Kalyn got with little snowmen on them. Her tree looked amazing after my step-sister Tamara helped her decorate it. Tamara is very crafty! The soup was great and we got to open our traditional Christmas Eve present which is ALWAYS pj's. Little Alex was not to happy with the non-toy gift.
After Dad's house we took Alex home and then went to Frankie's moms house. Rose and Charlie gave us our presents early cause we (I) was dying to opening something. Frankie got one of his favorite gifts, a picture with him and his Nana, now sitting in our living room. Rose got me awesome pink Victoria Secret pj's, in true Christmas tradition. It is really nice for everyone to carry on the traditions that my mom used to do with me. From their house we went to Jenny and Troy's. We got to see all the family visiting, that even includes Jenny right now and then we watched a little Achmed before heading back 12:30 am or Christmas morning......

Christmas is coming...

As a promise to myself, I am actually going to take pictures this Christmas and post them on my blog, which is amazing.....because honestly I hate pictures. We have a very busy Christmas Eve and Christmas for that matter. And since interest rates have dropped I have been overwhelmingly busy with work, which is good and I wont complain.

As a surprise Christmas present for Frankie I actually put up a real Christmas Tree this year. We give it water and everything. You will see it in pictures come Thursday. In recent years Christmas just doesn't seem to have the same effect that it once did. Most of my X-mas stuff was mom's and it is always very hard to pull it out of the boxes and put it up, especially during the holiday. It always feels like something is missing. She was one of the happiest parts of our family and the holidays seem to remind me of that. She got excited about the dumbest gifts...honestly it was very entertaining. However, I am very much looking forward to Troy and Jenny's Christmas party and I might just be stealing Stacy Deru's costume...ha.

Fun Night Out Continued

Love this picture of Frankie and I. We went to this place called A Bar Named Sue. And it was very cool and chill. Megan and I placed a little pool with some very nice guys and we got our butts kicked but it was fun. People we were missing though.....Katie, Monica, Amber and Henry, Linsey, Ben and Carlee....the list is long....

Fun Night Out

Since I got in trouble for never updating my blog I decided to take out my camera out with us last night. Here are some pictures so you can see what we did. First one of our very favorite restaurants David's Kitchen, owned by family friends. The friend is amazing and the pot stickers our handmade, to die for!!! If your really lucky Henry will order the food for you and you wont even have to look at a menu. The top picture is of Nicole and Tim who are having a baby very soon.
