Holly Jolly Christmas

As much stressing out that I was doing before Christmas yesterday was the total opposite! Even though we had to go to two different places that day and us running late in the morning it was a great day. I still have some family and friends to visit for the holidays but the last few days were filled with plenty of food, sweets and family time.
Friday I spent basically all my time baking sugar cookies until I went to work then came home and finished decorating them. I tried my hand at homemade frosting again (my first time was a bad experience) and it turned out so well. On Christmas Eve we went to my great Grandma's for Christmas dinner as always. It was fun and we all had a good time. Then Christmas day started with church service and then lunch at my Grandparents. Instead of turkey we did things a little different and had everyone bring in BBQ from where they lived in NC. After opening presents we headed down to Dustin's Grandparents for Christmas dinner and had turkey and all the fixin's. We hung out and listened to everyone play guitar, including Dustin, and just talked. It was a great day and I am kind of sad to see it over but so excited for next Sunday! I hope everyone had a good day :)

p.s- more pictures to come!

  4. @melissa:I left a link in the parentheses of the post about the bad icing experience. I didn't take tons of pictures but I had so much gooey icing I was scrubbing sugar off my fingers for a while lol.
