I can’t believe Christmas has already come and gone. All of the time, preparation and stress is now behind us and we can revel in the memories that were made this year. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and holiday season. Over the next few days, I’ll post our photos from our Christmas this year. There are a LOT, so I apologize in advance for the excess of them!
Every Christmas Eve we go over to Tony’s Mom & Dad’s house. It’s always a great time and this year was even more special since Amy’s fiance, Scott, was with us for the first time. It’s crazy to think that next year we will have a 9 month old with us as well (and maybe Amy & Scott will have one on the way?!).
My poor Mother in Law had her oven give out halfway through cooking our delicious annual prime rib. It definitely provided a good story to reflect on over the years ahead. They tried to take it over to Bev’s mom’s house, but couldn’t get into the house. Then, we thought we’d just cook it on the grill. The guys dusted the snow off of it, fired it up and the roast caught on fire, not more than 30 seconds later, it died since it ran out of propane! So, off to the neighbors we went in our last attempt to cook the darn thing. Thankfully, their oven was free and we had a delicious dinner after all of that.
Anyways, now onto the photos!
