A Merry Little Christmas

I hope everyone had themselves a very merry little Christmas! We sure did! We went to Michael's Grandad's house on Christmas Eve where we cooked dinner and had Christmas with his family. It was a lot of fun and since we don't get to see them very often, it was great to spend some time with everyone.

Some of our food, it was not all out yet when I took the picture.

We slept in until about 10:30 on Christmas morning and then we got up for breakfast. During breakfast you could hear a cell phone ringing, but we thought it was on tv. Michael kept telling me that it was coming from a stocking. So, I pulled my stocking down to find a Blackberry pearl inside!!! I had been wanting one for a long time, so I was so surprised and excited to find one in there!!!! Michael got a cabinet for our garage to help with his garage project he wants to start when we move back in. I got my mom a digital camera to help ease her into the 21st century and my dad a gift card to his favorite store along with some other things. Then in the afternoon, my mom's family came over.

Michael, me, and my Nana (please do not pay attention to the little fat girl sitting in the floor!)]

Here we are all tired and ready for bed after a fun, but LONG two Christmas days!

Today, I went shopping at the mall with my best friend, Lauren (the one that lives here, I know it gets confusing!). We ate at Abuelo's then went to the mall where we were so overwhelmed and frustrated that everything was basically picked over, we decided to drive about 40 miles south to the outlet mall in Calhoun, Ga. We did much better there! I got a few cute things at the Old Navy outlet and a cute pair of pjs at the Ann Taylor outlet (since all I want to do this weekend is hang out in pjs!).

Michael and I are going to dinner somewhere tonight then I plan on crashing this weekend in my new pjs. I may help my mom take the tree down at some point, but other than that, I will be parking my big butt on the couch or in the bed watching lifetime!

You are cracking me up with the "little fat girl" comment. :) Um, no.

I love your sweater, too!
