Christmas this year was a lot of fun and relaxing! Christmas Eve, Dakota and I spend time with my family and we had our 2nd annual gingerbread house contest! We started this tradition last year and it was so much fun. This year everyone definitely improved on their decorating skills. After making gingerbread houses, we read “Twas the Night Before Christmas”, which was another Christmas tradition, and then we opened our Christmas pajamas! It was a fun night and it got everyone excited for the next morning!

Christmas morning Dakota had to go into work at 7am 🙁 so I just slept in, cleaned, and hung out until he got home. Once Dakota got home, we went over to his families house for dinner and it was delicious! After dinner, we went to my parents house where we opened gifts and read the Christmas story. It was a very relaxed and fun Christmas 🙂

Dakota got a nice new suit with some ties and shirts! As well as some fishing stuff, gift cards to restaraunts, a temple bag, some clothes, and a sweet new watch! I was super excited to get my toaster and vacuum!! As well as some jewelry, a pedicure & manicure, a brush set, an apple cutter, and window tint for my car! We also got a lot of DVD’s chapstick and candy. We were spoiled and it was great! 🙂 
Hope you all had a great Christmas!
