Merry Merry Christmas!
After a wonderful Christmas Eve dinner, Church service, visiting with Melanie, and messing with Rick while he was asleep (aren't we so nice to mess with him on EARLY Christmas morning??) We had everyone over for Christmas brunch with WAY to much to eat and presents. Mom and Dad Estep, Mom and Dad Evans, Grammy, Grandpa, Granny, Joanna, and Sara all came over. We had Biscuits and Gravy, Breakfast Casserole, Quiche, Pigs in a Blanket, Coffee Cake, Monkey Bread, Muffins, Fruit Salad, and probably some more goodies that I just can't remember. We had SOO much food!
Here are some pictures...of course...

After Brunch, people headed home for some rest and then Rick and Mel wanted to host Christmas Dinner. So we had everyone back over for a yummilicious traditional dinner with turkey, dressing, green beans, corn casserole, pies, cake, and appetizers....again...WAY TO MUCH FOOD!
And isn't he just beautiful?!
Mike learning how to carve a turkey for the first time...
Overall, Christmas weekend was wonderful. It's times like these that remind me of how blessed I am. I am so lucky to have such an amazing family and friends. I believe my favorite Christmas gift was getting to talk to Casey! He was able to call from Afghanistan and say Hi to everyone. It was a wonderful Christmas blessing to get to talk to him.
I hope everyone had a blessed and wonderful Christmas weekend.
Now back to the real world of going to work...boy do I miss the college days of getting a month off for Christmas break! I'm excited for New Years and getting to see Julie, Luke, and Jackson next week!
Enjoy your last week of 2010!
