Incredible Christmas! {Recap 2010}

Hi Friends!! Did you have a happy, happy CHRISTmas? We sure did. More than words really could express :-) I am going to let a lot of photos do the talking if that is okay with you? We started the celebrations really on Wednesday night. We went to a Christmas Eve,Eve service at Substance church here in Mpls (my parents home church). It was fantastic!

Thursday was our last day of work for 10 days! We jumped out of bed that morning ... it was fab. We finished Christmas shopping+wrapping and geared up for the next couple of FUN celebratory days.

Rosey knew she needed to nap before the partying began :-) She is too cute -- Christmas sweater!

Christmas Eve was spent celebrating at my parents house. It was my dad, mom, sis, grammy, Josh & I. Lovely!

Grammy & Josh get along real well.. It is fun to watch. We love our Grams!

Opening Presents. Always so much fun! Rosey got a few too :-) (Look at her... she loves my daddy)

Rosey's cute new heart sweater from my parents. She loves it!

Jonna and I got cute coach purse wallets from our Auntie Amy!

Gifts from our family in Seattle! :-) Lots of cute things... including Rosey's vest!

Gift to Jonna and Kyle from us for there new house!! Jonna wants a wall of Cross's... that will be her new last name!

CHRISTMAS MORNING! Always a fun time with just Joshy and I :-) Stocking gifts! His big gift was a Wii!

Rosey had her own stocking! She loved it!

Christmas day was spent with Josh's side of the family. It was fun! :-) SO fun!

Fun presents... what a blessing! Aimee got a Belle Outfit & Belle Barbie Doll. So fun!

Mark & Sherrill opening their "date night" package :-)

Rosey got a LOT of attention by all the cute cousins. They love her... and she loves them!

Playing Wii... some of the cousins!

Cute, Cute Aimee and Mama Steph!

We had a blast and are continuing to celebrate this week by all going to a hotel together. It should be lots and lots of fun!

Ending our "Christmas" weekend we had our sweet friends Bre & Dana over. They are home for Christmas and it was a blast spending time with them. Chipotle was our dinner (they don't have them in Alabama). It was delish!

I may be a little MIA this week. I am off work for 10 days and trying to just soak it all. Postings may be spuratic and I am okay with that :-) Hope you are too!! Blessings!
