Christmas Wrap Up ~ Part 4

Well, I've finally finished the final CWU post!

Christmas Wrap Up ~ Part 4: The Goods
I know that the following video isn't about a gift...but my Daisy is just too cute lol

Ok, onto the goods!
Every Christmas Eve we exchange's a tradition that my mother started with all of us kids since I can remember. What's really fun about it is that we ALL still do it with our individual families now, and if I ever have children it's a tradition that I will continue.
Chris was VERY excited about the gift that he got me for x-mas eve...this made me think that he got me something cute for Victoria's Secret or something....BOY WAS I WRONG. lol
Always the kidder my hubby-to-be thought it'd be a great idea to get me Pajama Jeans, yup you read right...Here is my reaction:
 hahahaha, he kills me!
Every year after opening gifts I make a big breakfast
So yummy!
ok ok, onto the gifts.....for real this time.....
Here's what I got Chris:
SodaStream, Rocksmith, Skyrim, Starwars BluRay Collection, a new knife, knife sharpener, ITunes gift card, Oakley's, a Northface Jacket, NF hat, NF neck gate, and Adidas shoes and various other do-dads

wearing all his gear lol
What I got:
all from Chris
Chris always does an amazing job on Christmas~ I never give him any ideas for gifts, and he never strikes out...the best part is that he puts so much thought into the things that he gets me.
He got me my IPhone 4s {!!!} and an amazing blue tooth {a jaw bone} so that I don't have to use the speaker phone all the time. He got me two new pandora charms in the wedding colors {<3}, a beautiful phone case, 2 new dance games for the kinect, an ITunes giftcard, a gift card to payless, and yummy snacks in my stocking.

My mother completely spoiled us...she got us so much stuff...but best of all, she got us our champagne flutes and cake knife and server set for the wedding! They are absolutely gorgeous! I'm so thankful! xoxoxo
all from Mom

And don't worry...the pups got spoiled too:

I think that just about does it.
All gifts aside, I'm so very thankful for the family and friends that we have and for the wonderful times we get to spend with them.
I hope that your holidays were filled with warmth, love, and friendship.

Here's to a happy 2012!

I do the pj's thing with my little family too. I also give my son an ornament each Christmas so he will have his own when he eventually grows up. My mother started the pjs' and ornament thing with us.

That's awesome. Traditions like that are the best!
