Later in the afternoon we headed to my parents for Christmas dinner.
All dressed up and ready for a very special part of Christmas.
I say that I'm truly half my mom and half my dad. My mom taught me all things cozy (and pretty) and making a house a home... from my kitchen to the pillows on the couch. And my Dad, a teacher and musical theater director taught me how to make it all magical.
I'm always so tired (in a good, mellow way) by this point in the day that I hardly pick up my camera.
But even for this little bit I'm glad I do.
There were big presents and little ones too (like those ear muffs that she loves the best)
Such sweet memories that we'll hold on to all year. Just a thought of this day and we'll feel the warmth all over. I love Christmas Day at my Mom and Dads... just like it was for me at my Grandparents when I was my daughters ages. Oh how I love tradition!
