Christmas 2018

Thursday, December 27, 2018

Happy Thursday!  Dustin and I had a really great Christmas with our families so I wanted to make sure I documented it!

We started Christmas Eve Eve (the 23rd) with a cookie decorating contest.  Dustin worked that day so I pre-baked sugar cookies for us to decorate.  I didn't have the time or energy to make my own dough and then use cookie cutters, so I just bought the tube of sugar cookie dough and sliced it.  Then I chose the best cookies for us to decorate...and compete against one another because let's be real, Dustin and I love competing against one another ha!
 I set us up stations at the table with everything we would need to decorate.

 Dustin did great!

 These are mine 🙈

These are Dustin's--he may not look it but he's very creative!  We did this instead of decorating gingerbread houses and we enjoyed it!

On Christmas Eve, we went to the Shaneyfelts for finger foods and presents.  We played Dirty Santa--and this year we played differently with much fun!!--and White Elephant.  Of course, I'm wearing my favorite sweater haha!!!

On Christmas, Dustin and I work up early (just kidding, I woke up early and then woke him up) to exchange our presents.  We give each other our stockings first and open those.  Dustin always does so good putting things in my stocking!

 He's excited to see what's in the big box!

 After opening all of our presents, we had to take our traditional picture in front of the Christmas tree!!

Then we got ready and went over to my cousin's house for the Wiley Christmas breakfast.  We've been doing this breakfast my whole life, and I asked my dad when it started and he couldn't remember a time when we didn't do it!  It started with my dad's parents (Gran and Popo) and their 3 kids (my dad and 2 aunts) and their spouses and children.  For my entire life, we've had breakfast on Christmas morning and we're still doing it!!  Now that Dustin is married to me, he says it's his favorite thing ever and looks forward to it every Christmas that he's off work 😂  I didn't get any pictures because we were having so much fun!

 Then we went to my dad's house to exchange gifts with him.  I got him that vest and hat he's wearing and he was really excited about that ha!

 Then we went up to my mom and stepdad's house for a late lunch and presents!

 My sister Rachel and me!

 Mom and me!  
(I'm used to crouching in every photo with Mom and Rachel lol!)

I hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas, too!  
T-minus two months until BABY!!
