Here is Part 2! These pictures are of Christmas Day and the day after when we hosted a surprise graduation party for my lovely twin, Sylvia. Enjoy!
The tree with all the presents! Mom and Dad did stockings this year which has been a tradition all my life. Usually we find them at the end of our bed but this year they were under the tree. I like mixing things up a bit :)
Before gifts we had a scrumptious breakfast! This is how you drink coffee on Christmas morning :) Lots and lots of whipped cream!! Love the Christmas mug, I felt very festive.
This is also a tradition. Mama’s apple coffee cake. Even though it is not gluten-free, I totally had a piece because it is the best thing you will ever taste! (Slight exaggeration, but I think everything tastes better on Christmas morning)
Here’s Mom and Dad with their Christmas socks. This is becoming a tradition as well, which I think is hilarious. My sister Bethany brought everyone Christmas socks to wear and we all hiked them up as far as they could go!
Caleb and Sylvia. I think Caleb’s were my favorite. Seeing my brother in knee-high socks was quite hilarious.
My beautiful sister, Bethany playing some Christmas tunes :) Always love when she plays the piano.
This was one of my gifts!! I was so stoked to get a printer. No more hiking across campus to the library to pay ten cents per page!! For an English major, this is the best gift ever! :)
Bethany brought her Xbox Kinect and we played Dance Central. We had a lot of fun. We all wore black leggings, our Christmas socks and tank-tops. It was really funny.
Our Christmas feast!! It was a beautiful meal.
The girls sent me this photo…they went and saw Les Mis. I went and saw Django Unchained with the boys. It was an epic movie!
That concludes Christmas day :)
Sylvia’s party! My crazy sibs and the cake. We had fun.
About to cut the cake. You go, Sylv!
The infamous white board. Always has to be decorated for the occasion :)
The drive home :) The beautiful snow covered countryside.
Just including a photo of myself. On the drive home!! I’m wearing a scarf that mom and dad got me. I love it so much!
It was a beautiful trip! I am so happy I got to see my family and spend Christmas with them. xoxo E
