Yep, I know its late, but better late than never, right? Honestly, I've just been waiting for some pictures to be posted on facebook so that I could share them with you (specifically my footed jammies)
Hopefully this'll be mostly pictures -
Christmas morning, Steve and I got up and went over to my brother and SIL's house for Christmas Brunch and gifts with the whole gang (which is their family, Steve and myself, and my mom and her bf). Steve and I had exchanged gifts on Christmas eve night, and one of the things he bought me was an awesome hoodie that I just had to wear over to my brothers house (because I wanted to make him jealous):
A few others of the morning:
Auntie, Jordan, and her pillow pet:
She LOVES walking, but she can't do it on her own yet:
Little precious loves her thumb!
I love this one!
Cayden Taylor, 8 mos.
Little miss sassy pants kept putting her hand on her hips:
Just kidding! One gift that is awesome and completely worth mentioning: my bro and SIL got Steve and I a very generous gift certificate to Mama's Fish House, which is a very expensive restaurant in Maui. We had already planned to go there for lunch one day, but now with this gift card, we'll be going one night for dinner as well, we've already made the reservation for the last night we are there. I just thought that was so awesome!
Steve and I went back to my house and got changed and stopped over at his parents house to visit for a bit, then we made our way over to my aunts house. In the days leading up to Christmas I had been prepping for the appetizer I was bringing - we didn't have a formal sit down dinner because the family is huge-ish, so everyone brought little foods and people could snack all day or make a big plate to eat or whatever they wanted. I brought little mini open faced meatloaf sandwiches, so I had meatloaf and a sauce made in advance and read to put together upon our arrival; here is what they looked like once they were put together (I hope to get the recipe posted soon-ish):
So... that about sums up the day! Sorry it's so late - I should have a few pics from New Years up later today... they'll all be stolen from Facebook as I took like ... 3 pictures.
