It was a such a nice holiday this year. I was super organized ahead of time, the girls helped a ton, and Mark did the grocery shopping. All that made it a very stress free time.
In fact, we went out the night before! Adrienne was meeting some dance friends at a restaurant for a birthday celebration, so Mark, Sof and I sat in the bar and ate. The girls brought Sof a piece of cake and balloons!
The next morning the first thing on my list was working out. I counted cookies in my head the whole time!
Sof was out of her mind excited! She was dancing all over with her balloon:)
The house was ready, minus the kitchen! So all that was left was getting us ready. Like always, the girls looked perfect!
We had a nice crowd to start with, and enjoyed the usual eating, drinking, and chatting.
Mark pulled out the lottery tickets again, and Sal brought the poppers!
After awhile we were left with just our little regular group. We carried on with our usual routine of dinner and presents.
Sof got a tea set from Grandpa Culley. She loves it and spent the rest of the night serving tea!
Lexi loved her bouncy chair(so did everyone else!).
The best gift of all though, was the automatic mopper from Mark to me! I’m in love. It’s everything I need in a man.
Mark and Sal ended the night with the moose mugs, and the kids set up the cookies for Santa.
We were lucky to have Sal spend the night again this year. Everyone went to bed happy and excited for the next morning.
