Advent: Week Four Recap + Christmas

Ok, so the fourth week of Advent was reeeeeeally, reeeeeeally short, but I figure it's still nice to talk about!  Even though I was pretty purposeful this Advent, I felt like Christmas crept up on me.  I knew it was coming, and I still couldn't BELIEVE it was so close! :)

Advent Day 22, I finally decorated my tree!!

I also got my hair did that day. :)

Advent Day 23, I spent an evening eating a yummy meal with friends.

On the morning of Advent day 24, I said a rosary, for all of you who
read this little bloggy.

AND THEN FINALLY IT WAS CHRISTMAS!!!!!! :)  On Christmas Eve I hung out with Mart and the babe... we relaxed, chatted and prepared our evening meal.  It was delicious, per usual. :)  Then, we opened gifts.  I just love watching people open gifts that I really think they will like.  It's so fun! And, Zuz seemed to enjoy it too! Even though the paper and the containers the actual presents came in were more entertaining.
That little apron she is wearing... I got her that! :)

Yay! It's Christmas!!

My church looked beautiful!

Christmas carols before Mass.

Christmas at Midnight: Jesus is born!!! :)
Christmas Day: Breakfast, snuggles and hugs from friends.
After enjoying a nice Christmas morning with Martha and the babe, I was off to the airport so I could get to my mom for Christmas evening!!

It was like looking at a real life Winter/Christmas village!!

I have to say... walking into my mom's house was awesome.
She worked so hard, cooking all day to have a delicious meal, and decorated
beautifully. The fire going made everything all the more cozy.
It was just perfect.

Kori, Mom, Paul and Alex! :)
So fun to spend time with these special people.

WIth me this time! Sorry, Paul... I think this was the best one!

Alex getting some tickles from Papa! :)

Alex checking Jones' ear... she is just like Doc McStuffins!
(have you heard of Doc McStuffins??? I hadn't... interesting little show!)

Me and my momma! :)

Kori and I! :)

Yay for selfies with cute kids!
 Christmas Day wrapped up for me this morning:
I really forget how beautiful the snow is!
I know that it can be miserable, but I haven't seen it in years, so I am a little giddy about it.

And that, my friends, was my amazing Christmas! :)  I am just so thankful to have wonderful friends and family that love to celebrate and bring joy to my life.  I hope all of you were able to spend time with loved ones, as well.  I know this time of year can be hard, but know that you are not ever alone. God loves you.  So many blessings to you and your family! 

Abrazos y amor!
