A lil Christmas Eve Love

Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! :) I was off work today!!!!!! (yes!) It was a lovely lovely day. I just did some cleaning around the house, ventured out to Target and layed around. Perfection! Target was INSANE!!!!! Completely insane. I was happy I got some super cheap gift bags, wrapping paper, tags tissue etc. I only have to work 3 days this week! Yippeeeee! I am off on Friday for New Years! :) Tis fabulous. I could get used to a 3 day work week. Well, I wanted to give you a look into our Christmas festivities. I thought I would start with Christmas Eve! We always let each other open one gift on Christmas Eve! :) I opened an adorable shirt that Mr. Tim picked out for me and he opened some cologne!
These are my super duper cutie nephews! We always eat with my family on Christmas Eve. We had made some ginormous chocolate covered marshmallows....and the boys were LOVIN it! :)
A little bit of sprinkles left over! :)
This is our Christmas Eve spread! We always have roast! We call it roast beast (after the Grinch movie)! It is so yummy.
This is my parents cat, Alex! I put a bow on him so he could look festive! haha! I don't think he cared for it much. heehee.
This is my parent's beautiful home. I love how it looks at Christmas.
Oh...here's a look at those chocolate covered mallows I spoke of earlier. ;)
Mr. Tim rolling some mallows.
Me and my love on Christmas Eve.
It was a wonderful night. :) As I said earlier....I'm sad it's over but....but I'm doing okay! haha! I did some cleaning today and that helped me be excited about the New Year. I LOVE cleaning and organizing stuff....so this gets me excited! I have loved looking at everyone's pictures from Christmas!!!! What a fun blogging community we have here! :) Merry Christmas!
xo,
Amanda

It takes so much to get ready for the holidays, it's always a bit of a let down when they're over. But it looks like you got some great pictures to remember it!

We always open one gift on Christmas Eve too, but it's always new jammies (washed and ready) to wear to bed. :) My mom started it when we were little and we do it every.single.year!
