I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas… and have a Happy New Year!!! Being that it’s smack dab in the middle of the holiday season…and I am nearing the end of my orientation as a Labor and Delivery Nurse~ (which I am LOVING by the way)…I am extremly busy this week! So…I thought I’d leave you with some pictures of my Christmas festivities~ after all a picture is worth a thousand words!!! :)
My family and I spent Christmas Eve at my Aunt Lorrie’s house! This is a Christmas Eve tradition, and it’s always wonderful to spend time with the family, and Celebrate Jesus Together!!!
I spent Christmas Eve with…My hubby….
What a wonderful time of year, the time to celebrate our Savior, Lord and King~ Jesus! Merry Christmas!!! I thought i’d share my menu for the next two days (Christmas Eve and Day).
I will be spending Christmas Eve at my aunts house, and she will be making a ham, and everyone generally brings along a side or two!
For The Side Dish to Pass I Plan to Bring:
For Dessert I Will Be Bringing:
Christmas Morning’s Menu Includes:
Christmas Day Lunch/Dinner Will Be:
Merry Christmas and Many Blessings to You and Your Families!!!
I can’t believe there are only 10 days until Christmas!!! Which means the Christmas parties, special events, and holiday gatherings are in full gear! I know personally this month has been extremely busy for me so far…I’ve stood up in my friends beautiful winter wedding, decorated for Christmas, and made Christmas cookies with my family…and that’s only the beginning of the many Christmas traditions that are to come!
No matter what holiday traditions and/or events you may be partaking in this season, i’m sure two things apply to just about everyone~ one- it’s an extremly busy time of year, and two- there’s food and treats every where you look! When you combine these two things, it’s no wonder why the holidays generally come with the wonderful gift of weight gain!
As common as this may be however, this does not have to be the case with you! I have found that I always enjoy the holiday season, without gaining weight, all by making a simple list~ and checking it twice! It really just takes a little extra ‘planning’ to keep my body fit this time of year~ all while enjoying some of my favorite holiday traditions and treats!
