Christmas Whirlwind 2011

This year Christmas fell on a Sunday, which is great for most people. Except dentists. Sam didn’t get a day off for the holiday this year, so that means we squeezed ALL of our Christmas into 2 days. Saturday we drove to Guthrie for Christmas Eve at my grandparent’s house. These little guys make Christmas so much fun! These are my cousins, yes, cousins. I’m 30, she’s 5, and he’s 1… so I go by Aunt Daisi since I’m so much older.

Here is Aunt Jo and her cute little niece. A little blurry but so cute!

We even had an elf from the North Pole come to visit us – isn’t she adorable??

We try to take a family photo every year… here is ours from this year, I thought it turned out great!

After midnight mass (at 8:30), Sam and I headed to my dad’s for games with my brothers & sister. Unfortunately, I only took one pic at my dad’s Christmas morning but it’s OH so cute. This is the Christmas outfit I bought for my little Piper Rene’.

After my dad’s we hit up my uncle’s house, my grandparent’s house, then back to Tulsa for Sam’s mom’s Christmas. Then we did one more the Monday night after Christmas with Sam’s dad… I’m still in recovery!

And since this is a Christmas post, I thought I’d share with you the best house I’ve ever seen decorated for Christmas. This is our neighbors house, almost better than the Griswald’s. They do this for every major holiday, I have no idea where they store it all or how long it takes to put it up and take it down, but we always enjoy it!

Hope you had a very Merry Christmas and have a happy 2012!
