My aunt Jann decided to host my family's Christmas Eve get together this year. Its a pretty exciting thing because its been years since she hosted... and many of our Christmas Eve childhood memories are us being with family, at her beautiful house, eating her scrumptious food!
But, one stipulation was that me and my siblings, and our significant others, needed to help her decorate her tree. In return she feeds us with yummy food and drinks. (We made this deal of decorating for food years ago when she first grew tired of all of the many Christmas preparations). She calls us her "Christmas Elves".
We all went over there today, hung out, decorated the tree, enjoyed her delicious homemade chili, and even recreated a picture me, my brother and sister took years ago when us elves helped trim her tree.
Here are some pics:
This is me and my bow-making skills, and my sis and I getting the ribbon just right.
The sissy working her magic.
This is the pic we recreated. I cant remember how long ago the top photo was taken, but I think I was in my early twenties. I am now 30... so it was some time ago.
Here, Aunt Jann is showing me, my sis, and my brother's gf some pics of us when we were younger.
And here is her fancy tree, all finished. Beautiful, isn't it?!
We really enjoyed spending time with our aunt and uncle today, and look forward to Christmas Eve when our whole family can be together to celebrate the meaning of Christmas.
Hope you had a wonderful day!
