I hope ya'll had an awesome Christmas! Ours was fantabulous! Lots of family time, great food, laughter, and of course presents, equals pure joy for those young and old.
I, as well as our entire family absolutely LOVE Christmas, therefore I just HAVE to document all those new and joyous moments with lots and lots of pictures.
We started our Christmas celebration on Christmas Eve by going over to Brandon's older sister's house and opening a whole lot of presents there and enjoying some quality time with the in-laws. Giada got her first Christmas presents here. She totally slept through 90% of it though.
Christmas was spent at our house with my parents, brother, grandparents and Brandon's other sister's family. A full house and total madness! It was wonderful! It truly was! Brandon and his family like to go a bit overboard around Christmas time as you're about to see.
This is a picture of our tree and all the presents before my family and SIL brought their share...
...and this is our living room AFTER all the presents were brought in. Madness I tell you! It took us about 3 hrs to open them all!
The kids were in heaven with all the presents!
... well, most kids. Giada did a lot of this on her very first Christmas. She looked so stinkin cute doing it too! She had tons of presents given to her, but couldn't care less about them as you can only imagine. She may get a lot more into the whole Christmas spirit next year.
Once the presents were all opened, the food was devoured, and the boys (aka grown a&& men) were done running around and playing with their nerf guns, we took some family pictures.

... and us with my parents, little bro, and grandparents. Nothing beats Christmas with loved ones!
As much as I love Christmas, I'm quite glad all the craziness is done for now. I SO need a break! However, I know that as soon as July comes around, I'll be ready for Christmas to be here again. But till than, from our family to yours, Happy NEW YEAR!
