Christmas 2012

I'm trying to play catch up after a very busy holiday season! 
We had a wonderful Christmas and managed to have 4 family Christmas', a white elephant party & Scarlett's birthday party ALL at our house within a matter of days. It was hectic flipping the house around from one event to the next but SO worth it to be able to spend it with family and friends!

Christmas Eve Day we had family Christmas #1
(Cody's Mom, Grandma, Aunt Arlene, Uncle Randy, Morgan & Gus)

Scarlett got to meet her Great Aunt Arlene for the 1st time and was asleep in her arms in less than 5 minutes

We had enchiladas, tamales, chili, beans, hot onion dip, chips/salsa/queso, sausage balls, sugar cookies, & blueberry angel food cake. Then the girls helped me make cookies for Santa.

After everyone left, the girls opened gifts that were sent from Papa & Carra
 (sorry, I didn't get pictures of the interactive storybooks but they love them)

Christmas Eve Night - Feeding the Reindeer "Magic Reindeer Food"

Christmas Eve Night - Setting Out Cookies & Milk

Then They Waited...

Christmas Morning - Family Christmas #2

Cody cooked us our traditional Christmas morning breakfast (eggs, turkey sausage, bacon, hashbrowns, biscuits & gravy). After breakfast we had Christmas with my mom.

Family Christmas #3 
(I didn't take many pictures at this point but we have a very nice afternoon and made King Ranch Chicken for dinner)

Mom loved her new purse and wallet we gave her!

Thursday was Scarlett's actual birthday. Ashley & Victor arrived that afternoon from Corpus and we ate dinner and sang to Scarlett :)

Family Christmas #4
(Ashley, Victor & Mom)

I made them personalized roasting dishes 
(as well as Cody's mom, grandma & Aunt)

Mom got them the Kindle Fire HD

Cody & I gave Ashley a new bedroom comforter set & Victor Halo 4. 

Friday additional out of town family arrived for Scarlett's 1st Winter ONEderland Party that Saturday morning. That evening friends came back over for our 1st Couples White Elephant Party which was so much fun!! 

We had a very busy but WONDERFUL week of spending time with family and friends! 
What a great way to end 2012!!
