This year Christmas was a beautiful day filled with so many different groups of people I love.
My day started with opening gifts. Rich bought me the most beautiful vintage jewelry box, and had a few surprise presents inside.
My reactions all looked something like this.
I got dressed up in my red velvet dress and a cozy cardigan.
Then it was off to Christmas dinner at my grandparent's house where we eat Christmas goose with potatoes, veggies, and homemade cheesecake. My grandma loves to take pictures.
The advent candles glowing.

Then I was off to LK's birthday dinner at her house where she had her traditional sip of champagne from the bottle.
We got bundled up and headed out to celebrate.
Rich's house was crazy and in full on party mode, so instead of going to a bar we stayed here all night. It was almost impossible to find a place to stand in the kitchen it was so crowded.

With Rich, Linds, AJ and Dave, the best people to hang out with.
