It’s amazing how time flies these days. It’s Christmas time again. Are you traveling to see family and friends and spend time with them this holiday season? Or, are you staying home and host a big Christmas Party? Whichever it is, I bet it’s going be a wonderful event for everyone.
As for me and my family, we are celebrating Christmas Day at my parents-in-law’s home in Tyler. While making this post, my dear husband is currently prepping the brisket to put in the oven in a few for tomorrow’s Christmas Day dinner.
This Christmas Eve, we attended the church service at 6:00 P.M. When we got home after church and had dinner, we started the party. The children could not wait to open their Christmas presents. So after dinner, we head on and started the Christmas Party. They started opening gifts from the youngest kid to the oldest. Boy, they were so excited and anxious!
So, the young ones had a great time opening their presents. I think everybody loved the stuff they got from the family. K was so excited to see if Santa will give her nice gifts for Christmas. We brought the reindeer food she received from the class Christmas Party at school since we’re at the grandparents’ house. We had to make sure Santa will stop by and drop off her presents. 🙂 Na-Na helped her scatter the reindeer food in the backyard. (FYI: Reindeer food is a mixture of oatmeal and glitters or sparkles.)
After the kids’ unwrapping presents, it was adults turn to open gifts and play the White Elephant Gift Exchange. We missed my brother-in-law and his wife in this year’s family Christmas Party because they’re both sick. Nephew M is in Florida and niece M and her family will be coming over tomorrow, Christmas Day.
It was a fun evening. So thankful for family, love, time, and the blessings we received all year.
Happy Holidays, everyone! How are you doing? Are you starting to relax now from the hustle and bustle of holiday shopping and decorating? Whether you are hosting a party or not, it feels nice to see our homes all decked up for the Holidays.
Speaking about shopping, I tried very hard not to spend too much on home decorations this year. I had so much Christmas decorations from the past 8 years, and honestly I am not ready to get rid of them. Anyway, I would like to share some holiday cheer from my home to yours. I am not very good at home decorating but I did my best. 🙂
Now this big flower arrangement was quite expensive because it was priced $20 at a local garage sale. I bargained for half the price but the seller’s lowest price was $15. I bought it anyway because I really, really liked it. It looked taller on the round oriental vase.
Do you enjoy decorating for the Holidays? I do. As soon as the stores put their Holiday decorations on discounted sale, my family, friends and I buy whatever we can find that we like. Most of my Christmas decorations and pieces were more than 5 years old. These poinsettia placemats were given to me by my mother-in-law. Aren’t they pretty? The table runner was from Ross.
The centerpieces were bought from a on online local garage sale.
candle holder – $.50
crystal vase – $5
crystal candy dish – $3
colored balls and fillers – $2
This mesh Christmas wreath was also given by my mother-in-law two years ago. She won this at a raffle (door prize) at a Christmas Party with her group of friends.
I am so feeling festive now. I love Christmas season. How about you?
