Get ready for picture overload.
Everything started off on Christmas Eve. I was beyond busy in the morning. Between making cinnamon rolls, going to the grocery story and cleaning, I did not sit down until 3 pm when we headed to my in-laws house for dinner.
The girls tried some egg nog and were not fans of it.
We opened some gifts.
These were rocking horses that the girls are afraid of.

After opening presents, we had some appetizers and lite some fireworks.
Then we had the best ham dinner followed by a yule log.
After dessert, the girls were getting fussy, so we packed everything up and headed home. Once we were home, we put the girls to bed and started setting up some of the girls gifts and setting out cookies and milk for Santa.

The stockings were hung.
Once everything was set, we watched some tv and went to bed.
Christmas morning came fast and we got up, built a fire, and got the girls up. They were very excited to see that Santa came. They immediately started playing with their art easel and sitting on their new couch.
Obsessed with this couch.
The girls received a ton of presents and would open a present, play with it some and then move onto the next one. And they had to sit on their couch the entire time.
I cooked some bacon, poured some mimosas, heated up the cinnamon rolls and we had Christmas breakfast. The girls LOVED their cinnamon rolls.
We played for another couple hours and then put the girls down for their nap. While they napped, I prepped the prime rib, showered and cleaned up a bit.

Family arrived at 3 pm where we had appetizers, opened more gifts, worked on dinner, had some drinks and had the BEST time. It felt so nice to hang out with family and have everyone experience Christmas with the girls.
The girls opened so many gifts that evening. They received clothes, so many toys and baby dolls with strollers. These have been a hit for the girls. They love pushing their babies around, brushing their hair and carrying them around.
The prime rib came out perfectly. I was so nervous to cook it in our new oven, but it came out beautifully.
We served dinner of prime rib, roasted potatoes, salad and rolls. Between 9 of us, we ate almost the entire prime rib (the girls didn't have any). Everything was soooo good. Awhile later, we had some apple pie and vanilla bean ice cream.
We put the girls down and everyone got ready to leave. It was a very successful night.
We cleaned the kitchen and relaxed for the rest of the evening.
Monday we played with all of the girls toys, ran a few errands (big time sales on Christmas stuff) and headed to families house for dinner. We had another big meal of beef tenderloin, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, kale salad and bread.
Tuesday we had to go to work, but we had a date night with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law at Campo as our Christmas gifts to each other. I skipped out on meat as I have had so much red meat in the last weekend.
Overall, it was an amazing weekend and one that I will be remembering for a long time.
How was your Christmas?
