Hey friends! Happy happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend!! For today’s post, I am sharing a recap of my Christmas! Was anyone else super upset when Christmas ended? I mean such a big buildup, and it's all over. I sure was.
Christmas Eve was so exciting! Clara and I constantly checked the Google Santa tracker throughout the day just to see where Santa was. We spent most of the morning cleaning up the house for company, and mom and I made a quick grocery run to pick up any last-minute things we needed. While we were cleaning and making the food for dinner, Pip was fast asleep in his bed. Isn’t he so cute!
We worked on finishing up the food, and afterward, I finished up the homemade ornaments we were giving our family.
These were just made out of air-dry clay, we cut out the shapes with the cookie cutters we have, and I decorated them with Sharpie. It was a super fun project, that didn't really take too much time. I made one that said Merry & Bright, one that said Joy to the World, and another one in the bone shape that said Bear on it for my Aunt’s dog.
Before the family got here, I made a quick run over to check on the pets I was petsitting over Christmas!
Once the family came, we snacked on the appetizers for a little while before we had dinner. For our appetizers we had brie stuffed mushrooms! Let me tell you, they were so delicious and were not difficult to make.
We are dinner which was lasagna, chicken alfredo, mac and cheese (we went all out with the pastas), and salad. It was such a yummy meal, and everyone enjoyed it! After dinner, we just talked until we were ready to have dessert. My Nana made a chocolate log cake, which was so good!!
We are dessert, and half watched a Christmas movie and talked. Then I roused everyone to take a picture! Isn't Bear so photogenic! He is posing perfectly for the camera!
Once everyone went home, we all hurried to get in bed so we weren’t tired for the big day!
On Christmas Day, I slept in until 7, which is pretty late for Christmas day. Clara and I hung out for a little while Mom and Dad were preparing the living room for us to come out. We were all so excited for Pip’s first Christmas!
Then Clara and I walked into the living room and we started opening presents!
Clara loved the puzzle I gave her and put it together immediately!
Charles loves Christmas Day!
Clara got a polaroid camera for Christmas, and she loves it! She started taking pictures instantly!
Once we were all done opening presents, I went to go check on the pets! Then we had breakfast!
For breakfast, we had sausage casserole, fruit, coffee cake, and sparkling grape juice! It was so yummy! After we are, we mostly hung out and played around with our new things!
That night we all watched Soul together, which we loved, and then went to bed!
Clara’s birthday is the day after Christmas! We had a pretty normal and chill morning, Clara played with her new things. Then she went to our neighbors house to play with her two friends while we wrapped presents for herm and set out the cake! When she came back she was super surprised! We are cake, and she opened her birthday presents!
After that, we went on a walk in the trails!
When we got back, we are dinner, Clara and I watched a movie, and we went to bed! Clara had a really good birthday!
I hope yenou joyed reading my Christmas recap! Thanks for stopping by! I will see you all back here tomorrow with a makeup haul!
