The Weekend Diaries: Christmas Style

So, I am going to be cliche here and say, I can't believe Christmas is already over! I mean in three days it will be a completely new year. What. In. The. World. I'm blown away by how fast this year has flown by... Well, I guess I better get started on how fast my weekend flew by. This Christmas weekend can be described in three ways, Christmas parties, pajamas, and lots of Sherlock. I'm going to be honest with you all, I was incredibly lazy this holiday weekend. But hey, we all deserve some laziness every now and then, right?


Christmas Eve! Every Christmas Eve, with have Christmas with me grandparents on my mothers side. Tradition goes as follows; eat, take crazy family pictures, open presents, and then laz around watching Christmas movies. I would say we were pretty successful in following those traditions, wouldn't you?

 Kate, was officially done! lol. 



After relaxing for little while, we had another family dinner to attend. This one was for one of my great grandmothers. I wasn't able to snap hardly any pictures due to one of my cousins having a seizure; However, I did manage to get a couple of my adorable, little cousins opening their gifts! 


That was a REALLY long day. So, after my great grandmothers dinner, we all went to my Nana's and crashed.  


Christmas day is here! Christmas day we have to be at my mema's by 12 in the afternoon. Anyone who knows my family, knows what a struggle that can prove to be. Luckily, we made it there a whole five minutes early!  

 My parents 


 Me and my big, crazy, family! 

The great grand kids with mema. Missing two.  

After leaving my mema's, I went home, changed into my pajamas, watched yet another Christmas movie, and then headed to Bethany's for a Christmas pajama party!  

Bethany's dad, Johnny, was passed out from a long hard day of doing nothing. 

The very "last minute" decorations 

The food 

and lastly, the pajamas!

 Wesley being a goof... 

 Game time! 

Sarah, Wesley, Sean, Mallory, Me, Bethany. 

One word, Hilarious.

After our night of too much food, cozy Pj's, and one LONG game of monopoly, it was time for me to pick up my sisters, and head to Stacy's house. I have the pleasure of house sitting for her this week! 

 Bailey, loves my sisters! 


Friday was a lazy day, full of watching Sherlock and running few errands.


Okay, so here is where you start to see a pattern... Yet again, I did pretty much nothing... lol. I spent all day watching reruns of Sherlock. You can also see that I have a huge obsession with Sherlock. In case you were wondering, this is actually my second time watching all the episodes. They're just too good, people! P.S. You can find them all on Netflix. #you'rewelcome 

At least I managed to snap a picture! 

Later on that evening, me, my sisters and Bethany, all went to see Into The Woods. I really liked the movie; However, they changed a few things and I will say, I did not like the route they took. You will just have to watch it and tell me what you think. 


Yet another day spent watching Sherlock.... I think I may have a problem... Seriously though, who could resist these faces and their amazing knack for solving mysteries... I sure can't.  

At around 3:00, it was time for me to get ready for my besties Christmas dinner. Man, was it a good time! 

If you can't tell, mustaches were a popular theme... 

Funny story: Bethany had gotten a really pretty constellation necklace for Christmas. As we were discussing it, I heard a loud pop sound. The next thing I knew, the Christmas tree is falling towards me. I went into panic mode. "what do I do?" "There's no possible way for me to move out of this tree's way" So, I did what and good citizen would do, I caught the tree... However, I was not expecting that thing to weigh a good 500 pounds! So, I guess it was more like I tried holding the tree up, in hopes of not being squashed like a bug. Thank God, Sarah and Bethany got there fast!

Rest in peace, dear Christmas tree... 

How was everyone's Christmas break?? I hope your Monday is short and sweet! :)
