Christmas 2013 recap < 3

Hi friends! I hope you enjoyed your holidays and time spent with the ones you love! … The past few days have been a whirlwind of  family, friends + f o o d, lots of food. I feel as if every time we stopped somewhere we dropped off goodies but came home with 2x as much!

Here’s a little recap of this years Christmas ❤

Christmas eve was held at my dads. Where my sisters and I exchanged our gifts, the boys exchanged theirs and watched little Oliver experience his first Christmas! We had lots of good food prime rib, asparagus, salads + a festive Brussels sprout dish which I saw on Cait’s instagram.  Tons of appetizers, brownies and peppermint ice cream <— please try. This year George had to work at night, but came in time for left overs, Christmas lights & our gift exchange<3 I was a good girl this year! so very thankful 😀

… We then went to sleep, where sugar plums danced in our head.

Christmas day, George & I enjoyed breakfast, coffee and our “new toys” before heading to a quick stop at the gym & then his aunt  & uncle’s house {fun fact.- they are his only Greek realties here in the US} we drank wine, relaxed and Yiayia gave us lots of Greek goodies!

Christmas night we then went to Cassidy’s in-laws where my mom & her friend rick were too! The whole gang was together for an Italian meal. Mmm.. pasta : ) Oliver got to practice opening MORE gifts. And then we enjoyed MORE sweets ! … cannoli dip and Oreo truffles to be exact.

We lingered awhile longer and decided it was time to pack all the food up & head home.

With full bellies, presents & more memories.. another Christmas has come to an end!
