Merry Christmas you little sweeties

I have a confession to make. 

While I like the Christmas season and everything that comes with it (music, treats, trees, decor), I'm not a real big fan of Christmas itself.

My family really doesn't do much for the holiday, so Christmas Eve and Christmas Day have always been kinda awkward. We all just sit and look at each other because it's the holiday and we should be together, but since we aren't doing anything it's just weird and slightly annoying. 

I was dreading the holiday so much that I was in a pretty shitty mood the days leading up to Christmas. My expectations were very very low. 

Christmas Eve I woke up and headed to the Boone's to make Christmas goodies and give the boys their presents. My holiday was off to a good could it not be with these little sweeties? 

After that I went down to Dad's. He was getting ready to go out and be Santa, and of course Kate and I couldn't resist a photo shoot with his Santa gear. 

When Dad, Peg and Kate went out to greet the neighborhood with candy canes, I headed down to Grandma's. 

Grandpa was truly amazed at the self facing camera. 

The best part of the night was when Grandpa busted out his accordion. 

Christmas Day was more low key - first I went to Nicole's to give the boys their presents and I set Gavin's wii u up for him. Then lunch at Mom's, dinner at Dad's and then a very intense game of Jenga.

So between those great days, and the fact that I overdosed on cheesy Christmas movies and music this year, I think the Christmas jinx is over.
