(In your face, critical Mcjudgey pants!!!)
This past Saturday, Peyton, Amy, the kids, Dad and Maw-Maw came down/over for a late Christmas at our house. It was the first time Maw-Maw's ever seen my house, so I was excited that we did it here. I was also excited about Dad's steak, which is pretty much the best steak I've ever tasted. I made twice baked potatoes and Peyton and Matt made an excellent salad. Amy provided the coconut cream pie and apple pie (referenced in the previous post). It was a GREAT meal, and I was glad it wasn't turkey and dressing. We followed up the eating with even MORE gift opening, the boys playing basketball, the girls relaxing on the deck, and "Pop" and the kids roasting marshmallows in our new chiminea that Dad gave us. It's great to have it out in Gabe's garden, and I'll be sure to take a pic of how it all looks once the Spring comes, and it's looking all nice again.
And last but certainly not least... Raya , who is always super sweet and cute, but somehow always gets left off the blog.
So, after an hour of uploading photos and re-doing spacing a thousand times, that was our Christmas this year. Hooray! Shaina took the majority of these pictures, which is awesome, but is also not IN any of them, which is very sad. Don't worry, we didn't celebrate Christmas without her.
