We spent Christmas eve with Corey's family, baking waaaaay too many Christmas cookies, having dinner at his aunt's house, and going to midnight mass.
I helped my sister-in-law make sugar cookies, rum balls, toffee, snicker doodles, cheesecake bars, candied walnuts, and a few more things I can't even remember!
Ruby opening her first present.After a good night's sleep, it was time for Christmas at my parents' house. We spent most of the day watching the little boys open their presents and play with every single one of them, chasing Ruby around, and visiting with our grandparents and aunt. It was an awesome, awesome day and night.

It was a great first married Christmas for Corey and I. I am really loving the word "husband" these days! The hubs had an A's sign made for my office and got me a much-needed massage. He always does so good for me!

Our parents make the holidays so special for us. And it was the first time in years I didn't have to work on either Christmas eve or Christmas day or even any of the days around it! I've really enjoyed this break from work and time with my family. Hope everyone had a very merry christmas!
