We were so blessed to have an abundance of family in town this Christmas. Joey's mom and brother flew in from CA, his sister is local, his Grandparents, Aunt and Uncle drove in from a couple of hours away and his cousins drove in from FL and IN. We had a house full of laughter and love...just the way I like it!
And another thing that I really like...the sweet picture of my family below. My Grandma sent us jammies in the mail just a few days before Christmas. She started the tradition of giving all the grand kids the gift of jammies (often matching) on Christmas Eve, which we would then wear to spend the night at her house. I've gotta be honest....I loved this tradition when I was a little girl and I not so secretly LOVE this tradition at 28!! I definitely look forward to continuing this tradition with my children. Thanks so much Gram and Pam:)! I didn't notice Daisy's little wave until I was uploading the picture. Such a cute surprise!
I of course had to get the family in on the picture frenzy. Here we have Joey's Aunt Kathy, Uncle Mike, cousins Daniel and Robin and her boyfriend Ben. Daisy is pretty much a given in their family photos now days. lol.
And perhaps you would like to see me being my usually awkward in front of camera self...see, there is a reason why I am a photographer. I prefer being behind the camera. Just sayin'....
Coffee is a must at any social gathering in my house. Love the coffee aroma wafting through the air. Love the warm cup between my two cold hands and love handing out a cup for everyone to enjoy. Warm and cozy beverage = happy people!
And along with coffee comes chocolate. I know you are just dying to come to my house now:). Sometimes it takes a while to decide which chocolate is calling your name. This picture was thus appropriately titled "The Dilemma." LOL. Truth be told, I am not a big chocolate lover which is probably the only reason I was willing to share this box of goodness with others.
And there was never a shortage of cute things to look at. Daisy took care of that!
