Christmas 2013 in Photos

Saturday, 28 December 2013

I typically do a lot of writing, but I am going to keep this simple. The past couple of days have been a crazy mixture of non-stop fun, freezing cold yet beautiful road trips, delicious food, family, Christmas lights, wrapping paper, gifts and a baby who was NOT interested in getting her photo taken. 

December 23rd
Great-Grandma's bday and annual tradition. I look forward to this day all year.

Off to celebrate with Daddy's family
Christmas Eve 

My aunt hosted Christmas Eve this year. My mom had recently done a whole home makeover and helped her decorate as well.

 Christmas morning!! We had Ellia's Nanny &  Nonno, aunties, uncles, great aunt & uncle, cousin and her great grandparents come over to open presents. Hence the large amount of gifts! They were not all for us...although, let's be serious, a lot of them were for Ellia.  Hubs made an awesome brunch for everyone and later in the afternoon, Ellia's other grandparents came by to exchange gifts. Christmas Eve has always been out big dinner, so later in the afternoon, we all packed up and went to my grandparents and had dinner and played some board games in our comfies. It was PERFECT!
This is pretty much sums up how she felt about sitting for photos.

I hope everyone had the Merriest Christmas and is enjoying their holiday!
