Sorry for the radio silence over the last week or so--we've been busy spending time and celebrating Christmas with my family. They left early this morning, and the Mahan's are on there way here as I type. I know there will be an overload of pictures to come, but here's a (partial) recap of what we did on Christmas Eve.
Charlotte posed with all her presents.
Cole bonded with Jack.
Charlotte contemplated destroying the puzzle.
Here's another shot of the cupcake puzzle, which turned about to be much harder than we originally expected.
We spent Christmas Eve morning at Piedmont Park. The weather was beautiful and it was a perfect day for exploring.
Jack and another pup in action at the Piedmont dog park.
On Christmas Eve eve, we drove by a house that Thomas found out about from a work friend. The house has over 200 inflatable Christmas decorations displayed on the lawn. It was a crazy sight, and unfortunately didn't photograph well. Trust me when I say that it was amazing.
After the Christmas Light Tour, we returned to the house for some delicious appetizers. We had...
3 Onion Dip (amazing recipe courtesy of Martha Mahan).
"Chicken Tiddies," courtesy of my dad (chicken, bacon, pepper jack, and jalapeños).
Our favorite, Poppyseed Sandwiches.
Some fresh veggies, because we obviously care about health.
AND, Stuffed Mushrooms.
Luckily I was able to pause the feasting long enough to snap this photo.After dinner we watched a Speed family favorite--National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation--and finished up the puzzle. Overall, Christmas Eve was quite the success! Tomorrow I'll be posting pictures from Christmas day--I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
