2013 Christmas

What a Christmas we had this year! In one week we were able to spend several days in Orlando and Winston-Salem to see both sides of the family which made it extra special.
Before leaving town Matt and I decided to celebrate our own little Christmas at home.
Lots of presents from Caroline this year. 
Our big gifts to each other this year was a banjo for Matt and an iPad for me! 
The next day we drove down to Florida to spend Christmas with my family this year.
Lucky me, I got to squeeze in time on Christmas Eve with two of my besties!
 Christmas Day!
Christmas morning mom cooked up a delicious casserole for breakfast along with bacon and biscuits.
After breakfast it was time to open stockings and presents!
My goodness we got so many goodies this year. I thought we were going to need a u-haul to get all of Caroline's gifts home! Some of my favorite gifts this year from my parents were Nike Dual Fusion Running Shoes, Kitchenaid Knives, a set of sheets, pajamas from GAP, a dust buster, LL Bean  Hearthside slippers, loads of gift cards and more! Matt's favorites included several new ties, a Sega Genesis game system, pajamas from GAP and more...
 {my seester and I got new matching slippers}
And in typical Christmas Day fashion we relaxed, drank festive cocktails {mocktails for me} and ate lots of yummy food!
The day after Christmas we packed up and drove home. The next day we got back in the car for a few days with Matt's family in Winston-Salem where we got even more spoiled! Our favorite gifts? For Matt it was a Kindle Fire and clothes and for me it was my favorite Chanel perfume and a Clarisonic!
What a great way to end such a special year for us. We had a wonderful week and are so blessed by our families love!
