We had a fabulous Christmas with my family and sadly only had phone calls to Kyle's family. They celebrated in Fargo and we were all over Denver. Christmas Eve we went to the church I grew up at, it was so nice to be back. They have the best Christmas Eve service! We enjoyed dinner at CC's house and from the sounds of it, that may have been the last year she wants to host Christmas eve dinner?! She said she is making changes in her 80th year.
Christmas morning we spent at my mom's house with Dan, Kel, CC, Mom, and the three of us. It was so nice. The Christmas tree looks like it had presents under it for 40 people....which turned out to be 50+% for Josie! We opened gifts for hours! It was fun. All Josie really cared about was the bows. After she very short morning nap, we set her in a box of bows and she had a blast.
Christmas dinner Kyle and I typically spend it the two of us, but this year my Uncle Steve came Christmas afternoon, so we had CC, my mom, Uncle Steve and us for dinner at our house. About 5 years ago we started doing New Mexico style enchiladas on Christmas, totally non-traditional, but a very loved recipe from my grandma. Oh they were so good....maybe I'll share the recipe soon?! It was a wonderful holiday filled with lots of love and family.
