Christmas 2014 Recap

I was so busy enjoying all of our time with family over Christmas, that I didn't take any pictures.  Seriously.  Who am I?  I was able to steal a few from family members, thankfully.  

I did have a chance to make some Christmas cookies and snap a couple of pictures:

Oreo Balls

Chocolate Peppermint Cookies
We had a busy Christmas time, as we always do.  Kevin worked on Christmas Eve and then we headed to his Dad's to have his Christmas there.  Then we all headed out to dinner.  We then headed to my parents' to have Christmas with them and my sister.

Christmas Eve dinner
Christmas morning we headed over to my Grandma's for a big family Christmas party.  That afternoon we went to Kevin's Grandma's for a family Christmas party there.  That night we went to Kevin's mom's to have dinner and Christmas.  My mother-in-law got this awesome picture of all of the dogs wearing the Christmas bandannas that she made for them:

Admiral (our dog) is the one in the middle.  Everyone says he is posing and smiling haha
The day after Christmas I went shopping with my mom and sister and stocked up on wrapping paper, tissue paper, ribbon, and all other things Christmas.  That night, my dad and I headed to the casino.  We gambled for about seven hours and I only lost $3.00!  I call that a win in my book!

My mom sent me this picture of Admiral and Rambo (their dog) while we were gone at the casino.  They were just hanging out!

Saturday was another family Christmas party with Kevin's side of the family.  That night was low-key and we just hung out with my mom and sister and played some games.  We headed back home on Sunday to watch the Lions game and put away some of our gifts.

I hope you had a great Christmas!
