A little late...

I know Christmas was over a month ago, but we've been a little busy lately.  I always love looking at what people do for the Holidays, so here it is!

I didn't have any time off of work for Christmas (shocker) so we decided to stay in Texas for Christmas.  I guess you could say it was "my family's turn" for Christmas since we went to California last year, but because of work we went to my parent's house for Thanksgiving instead. (By the way I think it's really dumb when couples fight over which family's house they go to for Holidays because your spouse is your family now, but that's a whole other topic) This was our second Christmas out of our four Christmases together that we've done our own thing, and it's always so nice.  Luckily, we have amazing family here so it was even better than our first loner Christmas. 

Christmas morning Aunt Marlys and Uncle Del invited us over to their house to open presents and for an amazing breakfast.  Of course Kylie, Mike, and Preston were there too which made it even more fun.

We got Aunt Marlys and Uncle Del matching BYU basketball shirts.  For anyone who knows Aunt Marlys and her LOVE for BYU sports, it was a successful present to say the least.

I got Sean Lakers, Blackhawks, and USC t-shirts

Look at how cute Preston is in his Christmas jammies!

Our little present to Kylie and Mike for their new house!

Haha!  Grandma's presents from Kylie and Mike.  Do you think she likes it?

Kylie, you crack me up.  I just couldn't leave this one out.

Sean got me a massage!

This was Sean's big present.  I got him Rockband, with the new keyboard too!  For those of you who know what I got him last year...this wasn't quite as cool, but he seemed to really like it.

Aunt Kathryn and Preston.

I've been coveting these earrings forever!  I can't believe Sean remembered, he surprises me sometimes. :)

Uncle Del made Kylie and Mike these sweet bookshelves for their office in their new house! 

Aunt Elaine and Uncle Mark had everyone over to their house for Christmas dinner and games.  It was delicious, as always!  Conveniently the Lakers were playing that night too, so the boys weren't playing games with us very much.

The boys.

Haha, I like this one because of Kylie on the side!

So, I know it was forever ago...but that was our Christmas!  It was our first Christmas in Texas, hopefully to be followed by many more.  It definitely wouldn't have been as fun as it was without Sean's great family that we're surrounded by.  I don't know if I express it to them as much as I should, but I am so grateful for them, they truly make us feel right at home.
