I wanted to post some pics from our Christmas with friends & family .. We Christmas at my mom's house. We have a lot of family, so this year my mom and her husband had a thought to have Christmas dinner in the garage!
So they strung it with lights and set up the tables and it ended up working out! I'll admit, I totally doubted the whole thing and thought it was a little weird. But it was cozy & warm and in case you're questioning the garage: it's actually carpeted and my mom's husband keeps it super clean. He's really organized.. and clean. Carpet garage? A little random. Does anyone else have their garage carpeted? ;)
My beautiful mom, do you like the sweater I got her for Christmas?
I really wanted to get it for myself but it's nice to give instead of receive :)
(maybe I'll get it if it goes on sale!)
Our yearly white elephant gift exchange, filled with random presents and lots of laughs.
Aunt Jerry explaining the exchange and Daniel with a random gift. My brother ended up with the best gift: a energy drink, box of cigarettes with a $100 bill inside! (courtesy of our Uncle Art)
I love my cousins. I love big families. Even though we're all technically 'grown ups', we still exchange gifts and get presents from our awesome Aunts + Uncles. We all agree we never really will feel like grown ups..
The day after Christmas we headed to Missouri, to visit Nick's family. We drove out to Lexington and saw this courthouse with a cannonball still in the pillar from the Battle of Lexington! So legit.
Saw that this shop was located in Missouri so we stopped at her studio and it was so lovely! We also got to meet up with Sandy too, a dear blog friend. Waited an hour to eat at Oklahoma Joe's! Actually ate lot's of good BBQ, my favorite!
Random pictures from the airport.. I must say airport's are full of such cool things. I thought it was pretty awesome that this airport in Texas had a BBQ place. yum. I wish California was more into BBQ!
This was a really cool interactive ad, you just touched the door and it would open with something random behind it. I thought it was cool ;)
To end our very fun travels, we arrived back home and got to see Dionne, as she was hosting her annual blogger meet up. She always throws the best get together's. It was held at Cafe Aroma, a charming little cafe in LA.
& now, I am busy packing orders from my shop, waiting for the sun to come out so I can take pictures of new products, packaging, and my studio to share with you! Soon, hopefully.
How was your Holiday? Have any good memories to share?
