Christmas Eve and Day

This year we likely celebrated our last Christmas at my parent's house. They have big plans of traveling and becoming farmers in the new year. To celebrate they got the widest Christmas tree known to man. It blocked half of the television AND half of the doorway to the living room!

For Christmas Eve, we typically have paella but this year Everyday Dad switched it up and we had jumbo stuffed shrimp, wild rice, and roasted veggies. It was delicious. Dessert was my department. I frosted the cupcakes left over from my work gifts and added some "snow" for good measure.

I also made a raspberry trifle which is Everyday Dad's favorite. This year I baked the pound cake myself and it was quite an adventure. The cake kept growing and growing.

On Christmas Day, we traveled to the great state of NH to celebrate at Everyday Aunt's house. I chose "Four Calling Birds" for my official Christmas Day cup.

And was peer pressured into trying shrimp flavored chips....gross. (I also tried half a brussel sprout on Christmas Eve!)

L and I hung out and snuggled with a puppy...

While she found a solution to taking DSLR self portraits.

After dinner we opened Christmas poppers with silly toys and giant tissue paper crowns inside.

And L had fun wearing the hat she bought for her dad as a Darth Vadar face mask! 

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!
