Better late than never right?

So yeah... it's been almost 3 weeks since Christmas (wow) but I still wanted to share some of my First Married Christmas with you all! I will let the pictures speak for themselves, but it really was a lovely Christmas! We are very fortunate to live in the same town with his parents and only 1.5 hours from mine, so we got to spend the holidays with both of our families. Yeah it was a little busy but so worth it and I wouldn't have it any other way!! Christmas Eve day we were with Hub's family. That night with mine, well part (My half brother from my mom's first marriage, my dad and mom). Christmas morning we opened RIDICULOUSLY awesomely large stockings from Santa (aka-my mom). They were actually Santa sacks (think like 3 or 4 feet tall) filled. She's awesome!! Then Christmas lunch and afternoon my dad's three sons from his first marriage come over and we all celebrate! So it was jammed but we were very blessed with wonderful gifts and memories to last a lifetime!! I took over 200 pictures but I am only posting a few :) Enjoy!

First up... some of my favorite gifts!!

From Mom! You all remember this post yes?? Well here it is... I got it! And I FREAKING LOVE IT!!! Finally I found one that I love!! And don't feel all "I just got off a Harley" in it!! :)

Guess who this was from?? Hubs might have been thinking about himself a little when he bought me this little number :) ha

And these... :)

Talk about a great man. Hubs got these for me after I sent out an email to he and my mom seeing if they needed to get me something last minute :) haha! That's how I roll! They are freaking awesome!!!

To commemorate my weight loss... on Black Friday, mom and I went in search for me some designer jeans for Christmas. My very first pair. I have always been a Gap girl! Well I fell in love with these right when I put them on!! 7 For All Man Kind Roxanne in Mercer! They are fabulous and I will be purchasing MANY more in the future!!

I have been DYING for something "Lumberjack Plaid"! And Hubs knew this. I talked about it often. But I couldn't find anything that I liked at the right price. I didn't want to spend much because next year I will probably be painting in it because this look won't be "in style" long! He found this and when I opened it, I was so proud of him! He did great!

Mom got me #7 and #8 in my Waterford "12 Days of Christmas" Flutes! Love!

I got so many more gifts that were great. Hubs got me a new huge wooden cutting board and some WONDERFUL things in my stocking (VS gift card, iTunes gift card, and lots of necessities!). My mom got me a new ESV Study Bible with my new name on it, awesome book ends, and so much more! Needless to say I was spoiled this Christmas! It was wonderful and I feel so blessed and lucky to have such a wonderful husband, mom and dad!!

These pictures are from 4 different Christmas events so that's why I have different clothes on! I didn't do wardrobe changes-ha!
My last living grandparent, MawMaw Clark (mom's mom)! With her three grandchildren. My cousin Bryant (behind me) and my bro Joey!! (he's like a real brother to me, not half)

Christmas looks like it was lots of fun! LOVE the new jacket :) -- I need to do better at having "wishes" -- Sweet Dan was pretty much left to figure it out for himself... didn't do to badly, though I must say --
