Ah. Christmas. Family. Love.

Christmas Eve starts at 9am at my parents house. We gather for a big ol' country breakfast. What a great way to start the day! Then after we've had our fill, it's on to the gift exchange. Among other things....Ryan got a nice pair of gloves. (and all of us Mother's know that boys need new gloves every year :)

Kyle got a new hat! The kind that keeps your ears warm....like Elmer Fudd wears.....

My niece, Tayler, opening gifts. By the time she was done she had a head full of Christmas bows.

We got Dad and Mom a new Garmin. Whoo-hoo! Mom was ready to go for a drive and try it out!

This is my brother after opening the gift we gave him :)

Purple was the color of this Christmas! I got two of these awesome fleece jackets in different shades of purple, a purple scarf, purple gloves, a purple shirt and a purple robe. Good thing I love purple!!

It fits!!! I have worn it everyday since I got it. It is sooo warm and soft. I wish I didn't have to cover it up with a winter coat..unfortunately it's too cold for the jacket alone.

....and my hubby got a purple dress shirt and tie. I love that he has to dress up for work now. He looks so handsome!

After work, Briahnna came over to open gifts, too. Isn't she beautiful. I have never seen a bad picture of her, she is very photo-genic. (hey, nice bag....lol!)

Our tree....Christmas morning.

The boys bright-eyed and ready to rip and tear! This is my favorite Christmas moment every year!

How appropriate.....a Beatles ornament for Kevin :)

OK....never thought I would do this....get a gander while you can.....me without makeup or my hair combed AND in my jam-jams. It's a first and probably a last!!

Even the furry children received gifts!!! Buster was the only one that opened his all on his own. Oh my another squeaker....how many does one dog need Santa???

We spend the rest of the day with Kevin's family starting off with Christmas dinner. Then the massive gift exchange with all 29 of us! It is utter chaos and I didn't get any good photos. We are all in one huge great room and everyone is opening presents at the same time so I have photos that encompass several people at once. Not any good candid shots....my bad. I will keep that in mind next year because I would love to show off my in-laws.....they are amazing folks!

Well.....there you have it......our beautiful Christmas moments. Hope you all have a warm, loving, joyful Christmas as well. Now onto the New Year's festivities!!!
