Thankfully my mom was able to fly in for the weekend. It was very nice to see her after 4 months.
We spent the weekend laying around, eating and shopping.
It was a year where everyone got thoughtful and surprising gifts and we were all pretty pleased.

|The pups got lots of loving|
|Ernie likes to watch TV sometimes. It's so cute.|
|The table all set|
|The spread: Ham, turkey, mac n cheese, dressing, squash, corn, potatoes, brie en croute, cheese bread, salad, gravy, pecan pie, oreo balls, turtle bars, fruit|
|Some of my haul: houndstooth scarf, purse, Sperrys|
|Beautiful headband from hubby, boots|
Monday mom and I braved the stores to pickup some half-off Christmas decorations in preparation for next year. It's always fun unpacking them next year to discover all the new things, since I tend to forget what all we bought.
All in all it was a very relaxing and special times- just how Christmas should be!
