We celebrated our Christmas with the Bergs on December 31st. I titled it the Trifecta because it was our Christmas celebration, Papa John's birthday, and also New Year's Eve! Whew....lots of reasons for eating goodies!
We took our family pictures first and had some really cute ones.
Then we all ate homemade pizza! YUMMY!!!
Then we snapped a few pictures of the grands with the Grandparents before unwrapping presents. This is the only one I got. They were taking others that I am sure are better, but I liked this one anyway :)
Jeff got a Juicer and I got some new running shoes with our money, and then we opened some other fun presents too! We are beyond blessed by all of our families all the time.
Thank you Grandma Debbie and Papa John!
We then celebrated with another family favorite Chick-fil-A Nuggets and Stirfry (and Chicken Lettuce Wraps too!) and ate and celebrated Papa John's birthday! Yay!! Another excuse to eat cake and lots of food! Oh my goodness I was stuffed. (had nothing to do with eating 3 or 4 Katy's Pantry cookies either:))
We headed out much later than planned (we didn't want to be driving so late on New Year's Eve) but it ended up working out as for 1.5 hours of our 2.25 hour trip we were THE.ONLY.CAR. on the road heading to Tulsa. It was kinda creepy. But nice. We made it home just after 11:15 and got the kids in bed and celebrated the New Year by unloading the car and heading to bed right at midnight. I don't think our kids have a clue about "celebrating" a new year. We just don't do it. For me it's just another day, another night. A different number on the end of the year. But I must say I welcome a new year, as this one has been a hard one.
