Christmas Recap

I hope everyone had a great Christmas leave and/or vacation,
and safe travels back home if you did any traveling.
Here are some of the highlights from Christmas Eve & Christmas Day.

We had a little shindig at our house, with our Christmas sweaters.

I had to get a photo with Stryker : )

Us on Christmas Eve.
Only a portion of our food from Christmas Eve.

Santa's treats.

Red velvet+cheesecake=amazingness.
If you follow me on Pinterest I pinned this...
Check it out.  It was good, and the red velvet wasn't dry!

Whiskey Sours....Complete with maraschino cherries!

Stryker & me on Christmas eve.  He's obviously trying to steal my thunder!

A family photo of the boys...Obviously there was a lot of cooperation.

"Look, I'm panting just like Stryker!"

Christmas day with Stryker & {one of} his new toys.

I believe that I had a mimosa and Jesse had orange juice.

Breakfast quiche, yummy!

He was happy to have his spot back under the tree.

Do I need to explain?

Spuz and his new gift from grandma & grandpa.

Jesse's reaction when he opened Stryker's gift.  His reaction was priceless, I'm glad I was able to capture it!

He thought it was pretty funny.
Stryker seemed to like his pillow pet, which I'm told is a tyrannosaurus rex. 

Play time!

Life is hard for our pooch.

And our cat : )
I will post more about our leave at a later time, I hope that starting this blog post is starting the new year   in a good way.
I can't believe that it's all over!

Have a great week,
