Family Christmas 2014

Ah, Christmas. The lead-up to Christmas is always full of anticipation laced with extreme stress. Gifts to buy and wrap, food to make, so much stuff to do! The day of can get pretty stressful, too. This year, though, by some miracle, the day was super not stressful. And actually fun! Got to rock an awesome dress and shoes from my awesome fiancee, got her her first blanket scarf, and had a great time celebrating the day with my family!

Her first blanket scarf, from asos!

Ignoring the disgusting face I'm making at 100% fault of the sun, check out these killer shoes!

We were up at my aunt’s house this year. It’s a bit of a drive but totally worth it. She’s an amazing hostess and we always have a great time.

My cousin did grandma’s make-up.

We had some good old fashioned cousin time on the couch.

And [finally] a photo of my dad smiling. This is a rare occurrence. And required wildly inappropriate jokes from my uncle.

Definitely an amazing Christmas, one to top past Christmases.

Do you have any silly holiday traditions? What are they? I’d love to see them in the comments!
