Pre-Christmas Festivities

December has been such a busy month getting ready for Christmas, shopping, end of year hustle at work, fun celebrations and seeing our family all around Texas.  As soon as I stopped a few days ago, my body shut down on me!  I was describing to Jason yesterday that I felt majorly hungover...but I hadn't had ANY alcohol the day before.  I will call it my Christmas hangover. 

We had a WONDERFUL Christmas and still have one more set of family to celebrate with...how lucky are we?  Lots of posts coming to document all of our celebrations, but first I want to list all of the pre-Christmas festivities I had so I can remember this whirlwind month. 

Dec. 3 & 10 - Shopping day with Jason
So fun to spend the day with Jason, shopping for our family and getting in the Christmas spirit!  We even carved out some time to look at houses in the area. 

Dec. 4 - Cookie & Ornament Exchange with the Junior League girls
Adrienne was the hostess of the year!  She organized this wonderful idea to get all of the "waitresses" together to share our favorite recipes.  We had the best ornament exchange too.  Love the ornament I won (from Erin) that is a picture of us gals in Fredericksburg from our summer trip.  I brought Hello Dollies, a family favorite and so easy.  Recipe post coming soon.

Dec. 7 - Pi Beta Phi Alumni Ornament Exchange
Lauren hosted the annual Pi Phi ornament exchange in her beautiful home.  Best part was Darcy, our junior group President, bringing her "special" ornament from last year's exchange!  Why didn't I take pictures?

Dec. 15 - Christmas Lunch with Ashley
Ash and I accidentally made a new tradition of eating at Pei Wei every Christmas for our gift exchange...gotta love their kids honey seared chicken!  So great to see her and catch up.  She always gives the most thoughtful gifts...bows to be re-used included!

Dec. 16 - Shopping Day with Mom
Another favorite Christmas Tradition: Lunch and shopping with my mommy!  Such a fun day including lunch at Cheesecake Factory and a late afternoon treat at Tea Cake Factory (what was our deal with factories that day?).  We even managed to get in come Christmas shopping.

Dec. 21 - Christmas Lunch at work/Dinner with Grandma and fam.
Full day!  Lunch at our corporate office from Luby's!  That night Jason and I hosted dinner at our place since my Grandma was in town from Arkansas.  All of the "Townsend" family was there including Carter's dog, Zeke!

Dec. 23 - Tacky Sweater/Enchilada Night at Dad's
This will get it's own post later this week!

Dec. 24 - Church and Chinese Food with Mom and LE
Full post coming on this one too...
