Excuse the hideousness of this post...I chose to go without makeup or grooming for the 24 hours surrounding Christmas Day.
Yes, as you can see, I was the stocking elf this year.
I got to pass out all stockings to family members wearing horrible Christmas sweatshirts...
Rewind to pre Christmas Eve.
We got this brilliant idea to make hideous Christmas sweatshirts. Shortly after this picture, multiple bottles of wine were consumed and this idea went quickly downhill.
Let's just say my husband wrote "Junk in the Trunk" on my mother's sweatshirt, I decorated my sister's with a magical horse named "Sparkles", my sister helped make sure my dad's sweatshirt featured a naughty snowman, and Ryan's sweatshirt featured a whispering, joker-smile santa claus.
Fast forward to Christmas Eve.
I woke up and helped my dad make his famous American Beauty Red Velvet Cake.
I set up our beautiful Christmas table.
We all got ready for Christmas Eve service

And the two of us
After church it was time for dinner.
I went for a Southern feel.
I saw this idea floating around on Pinterest. I think it came out really well!
Then I made this cornbread stuffing rosemary stuffed chicken...It was extremely delicious
