Christmas 2011

Hope you all had a wonderfully blessed Christmas!!  

I know it's been a long time since I've written last and hopefully in the next week or so I can explain that, but for now, I just wanted to give a quick update before this year was over.  (mostly of my favorite pictures from Christmas)

Christmas Eve
Christmas Eve is my favorite night.  There is something so special about it to me.  Maybe it's because I always remember it being so magical when I was little.  Who knows, but we do spend it with my side of the family.  We start with a yummy traditional Hungarian dinner and then head into the living room to exchange gifts.  I think each year becomes more fun as we add children to the mix.  However, at times... it did seem quite chaotic.  But all-in-all it was a great time with family and being able to bless one another.  




Christmas Morning
Christmas morning was so awesome.  Four-year-old's have a way of making that magic of Christmas come a live again.  Well, at least for me it did.  Ian on the other hand, didn't really care about the gift he just wanted to play with whatever was opened by anyone.  Jayden was so excited to see what Santa brought for him!!!  He was even excited to see what Santa brought for mommy and daddy!  It was so cute!  

Christmas Day
 Then we spent the rest of Christmas day with my in-laws.  It was a good time with Jesse's side of the family.  We had a wonderful breakfast that Jesse's dad made us, and then we went and opened some great gifts.   I must say... we all made out pretty well this year.  :)

That's about it from us.  I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that your new year is filled with joy and blessings!  Hopefully I'll get some time this week to read over some of your Christmas fun!  

Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
