I Still Have That Holiday Feeling

Christmas may be over but I still have that holiday feeling! 
Christmas was great this year. I was able to spend the day with my family, eat some great food and I even got some great gifts. 


On Christmas Eve, my mother and I headed out to see the lights. The last couple of years we've made it a tradition to go out and look at all the decorations and lights. This is by far my favorite house in the area...
They do a ginger bread/candy theme and it's so cute! After we got back from looking at lights, we all opened our Christmas eve gift. In my family, since I was a kid we've always opened one gift on Christmas eve and then Christmas morning we open up the rest of our gifts. 
 
After we got our Christmas eve gifts open, it was time to get a few items ready for Christmas day. We got all the presents under the tree...
and we prepared our Christmas day ham to spend the night in the oven...
Christmas morning we got up bright and early and opened gifts. Then headed to my grandma's house for Christmas breakfast. This is the 3rd year in a row that we've done a breakfast and it's so much fun. We always get to exchange gifts together and of course take our infamous couch photo.
I also got to spend time with my favorite baby, Baby Olivia! She was looking cute as ever in her little Christmas outfit! 
My mom and baby Olivia had on almost matching Santa hats! It was such a fabulous Christmas and did I mention, I got satellite radio? Well I did! And there's a 24/7 radio channel of all ELVIS! My other favorite is the 90's on 9. Hello middle school music of my day! 
I also got my new favorite perfume, Twirl by Kate Spade. I originally tried this because it was a sample in my September birchbox and totally fell in love with it. 
It was such a great Christmas. I know I have plenty of dvd's to watch and books to read for the next year. I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas as well!

90's on 9 is great. I never thought I'd pay for satellite radio but we've had it for 4 years now.

I loved your pics!! Sounds like everyone had a great Christmas!
