Ahhh, Christams – jam packed with festive fun!  Christmas Eve Eve has become a new pub crawl tradition with friends so we went to dinner at Joey’s house and then headed out to Queen Anne.  The next day was followed by an early morning drive to Moses Lake for Christmas Eve with the Anderson family.  There was quite a bit of snow (well compared to a balmy 50 degrees in Seattle) and our Bernese mountain dog LOVED the white stuff!  We had a great time seeing my family but it was a short trip as we headed back over the pass on Christmas day for the annual dinner with Tony’s family.  As always it was so fun to see the kids rip open their presents, gorge ourselves with more food and my favorite part -the heated Christmas ornament exchange! We headed home with tons of leftovers and too many presents…our families are too generous! 

The day after Christmas we had family over to our house for a quick brunch and we were left with the rest of the day to enjoy lounging around and recovering from our food hangover.  We are so very blessed to have such great family and friends in our lives.  Wishing you all a happy holiday season and best wishes in 2011!!
