Here is the continuation of the last post with a look at family, presents and dessert. We had a great time exchanging gifts. It’s always so much more fun when there are little ones to buy for and play with!
My grandmother is ridiculously talented at gift wrapping. She even does all of her own bows and is so creative.
My grandmother and I have been exchanging this same gift bag for over 10 years. Each year we alternate who gets to take it home. This year mine was full of fun stuff like lip gloss and nail polish.
OPI’s top ten. I’ve already broken into this today and painted my nails Alpine Snow (top left).
My grandmother was way excited to receive a Neato robotic vacuum cleaner. We got it all set up this morning and it’s been circulating the downstairs all day. The dogs aren’t quite sure what to think.
My grandmother gave me an adorable hat and scarf that just happend to match my outfit along with beautiful pearl studs for all the girls in the family. 🙂
And I gave her an Erin McDermott disk necklace that’s stamped “love you to the moon.”
Why play with your toys when it’s more fun just to sit on the box? This is literally where she wanted to stay and play all night.
After all the gifts were open we moved onto dessert. I baked Ina Garten’s Apple, Pear and Cranberry Crisp. It was perfect warm out of the oven with a scoop of ice cream.
And my dad made his famous red velvet cake. I don’t think we’ve had a Christmas without if for as long as I can remember.
Such a happy evening. 🙂 🙂 🙂
