Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend!

Mine was full of family, friends, food, drinks, gifts, music, cooking, baking, traditions, movies, and sleeping in. My office was closed Friday and Monday and I decided to take it a step further and take Thursday and today off as well to fully relax before finishing off the year and ringing in 2012.

It was a wonderful Christmas starting off with my family at a family friend’s on Christmas Eve, spending time with boyfriend and family on Christmas day and night, and relaxing all day yesterday with a surprise visit from boyfriend’s mom. All of my loved ones in one weekend – can’t ask for anything more than that. (Except maybe a puppy, but there’s always next year!)

Rather than recap all of Christmas, I’ll let the photos do the talking.

I’d like a pony for Christmas

Stockings were hung by the chimney with care (or on the floor because they’re too full)

Blazing fire

Dinner and Vino time (I’m only drinking 2001 vintages from here on out)

Hope your holiday was just as merry!
