Christmas Recap Part 1

There is nothing like going home for the holidays, even if it's only for one day. Getting to walk through the door and hug on my parents is something I always look forward to. Along with our tradition of going out to eat when I visit (and every Friday and Saturday night) and getting to catch my family up on Will and I's daily outings in Charlotte! The day before Christmas Eve, Will and I drove to Greensboro to visit with my parents and Uncle Perry. 

This year was the FIRST year that I didn't spend Christmas Eve or Christmas Day with my family and although it was very odd and at times different, I think I did a great job enjoying myself and loved getting to see each and every important person in our lives. Some of the things I cherished most from celebrating Christmas with my family and Will this year include:

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls with Chocolate Chips
Dad playing with his new Yo-Yo while sporting his new vest
Momma getting excited for their maid/house cleaning service Will and I gifted them with
Testing out more settings on my DSLR camera ;)
Shopping at Fleet Plummer were I stock up on Christmas decorations each year
Cowboy Boot Stockings
My parents gifting Will with his first pair of L.L.Bean Boots
Having both of my parents home and in good health (Mom even had hand surgery that morning!)
Dad making reservations and taking us all out to a delicious dinner 
Being surprised with my Grandmother's wedding ring...something I will always treasure

Be on the lookout Monday for my Christmas Recap Part 2 about the rest of my holiday spent with Will's family (filled with even more photos)! But in the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I am so glad to be back to blogging, but soaked up every minute I was away relaxing :)
