Christmas in NY!

Alright, so I know it's been FOREVER since I've updated my blog. But here's my excuse...My life really isn't that exciting and I'm not great at remembering my camera. And everyone else that promises to e-mail me the pictures never actually does. So I have no pictures to put up...so I just don't end up blogging. I was going to wait even longer to put this up, waiting for my dad to send me pictures. But he's busy and didn't so I don't have a ton of Christmas pictures. But here ya go! Matt and I went to NY for Christmas and it was so good to be with family. But it was also super crazy because my sister, Carissa, got married 2 days after Christmas. Anyway, here ya go!



While I was in NY, I spent a day with my best friend, Tiffany, and her little girl, Maddie.











My dad has two of these hats. Apparently he thinks he can pull off the "Indiana Jones" look...even after I told him he probably shouldn't go out in public like that.




My adorable little nephew Dean. Every time you tell him to smile, this is what he does. ha ha So cute!


Snow in NY...nothing new. We got waaaay more than this by the end of my trip. It's always nice to have a white Christmas.


I didn't really take a lot of pictures on Christmas day, but I did catch a picture of the living room with a lot of presents before everyone ripped into them.


Scott and Nate with a couple of their presents.


*Disclaimer* It was Christmas morning!
I know I look terrible, but I did have to take at least one picture with some of the gifts Matt got me. My Bare Escentuals Beautiful Eyes kit and my awesome Clark shoes which are super cute and waaay comfy! My hub definitely spoiled me this year.

ha ha I got Matt some of those old fashioned chattering teeth for his stocking. You can tell he's really thrilled about it. ha ha

Because we spent Christmas in NY with my family, we couldn't bring all of our Christmas presents with us. So we came up with a brilliant plan. We took pictures of all each others presents and then put them in envelopes so that we'd still have something to open on Christmas day.


Matt definitely is still a little boy sometimes...and it's very cute. I had put all of his "presents" in envelopes and then he asked me to wrap the envelopes so he could open them...what a goof. So, I wrapped every single one of them. I also had given him one of his presents early and left it home. He brought it out to NY with him and asked me to wrap it so he could open it on Christmas morning. ha ha


My sister Kalin and her little boy playing Guitar Hero. Isn't he so stinkin' cute?


Everyone took turns playing Guitar Hero, since my little brothers got it for Christmas. My cousin, Jake, is amazing at it. He can play on expert! It's exciting to watch him play.


Deano!
