Can we please go back in time to Christmas weekend? I had too much fun and would like to relive it. But then again, who wouldn’t want to relive a weekend full of festive festivities? So since I can’t go back in time, I will just have to do this whole reliving thing through pictures. Of course I took no pictures with my DSLR. So there is some work to be done..
We started the holiday with the reason for the season and went to church with my family. One of my favorite traditions my family has is mass and then coming home, getting in PJs, and watching a Christmas movie with appetizers. My mom makes all the favorites and we enjoy! Plus, her trees and decorations are spectacular!
Christmas Day was split between mine and Kevin's family. We also enjoyed lots of sports, spoils, laughs, and food. My mother in law also finally was able to teach me how to make a pie crust. I cannot tell you how many times I have failed in my kitchen at pie crusts. Good news is I successfully made TWO! What?!?
Growing up in New Mexico we are used to a lot of the yummy Hispanic traditions. We did skip making tamales this year, but my sister spoiled us with a meal of beans, rice, burritos, chile, and posole.
I have 10 pounds to remember the weekend by. I will try and get rid of that. But the laughs and memories were nice! My mom, sister, and I decided to spend some of our Christmas cookies calories by going on a short hike.
This weekend was jammed packed with just about everything and it made me one happy girl. It was also filled with hours of driving as going home often is.
How was your holiday season?
