Just like that, Christmas came and went. How does it all go so fast? I had such a great time with my family but now I’m home and I’m excited just to relax for once! :)

Christmas Eve’s lunch was an old family favorite: King Taco. I had a chicken burrito:

I love all things spicy but their hot sauce is crazy hot. I still ate it. :)  Christmas Eve was spent prepping for Christmas dinner and making another family favorite: Beef Stroganoff. We eat it every year for Christmas Eve.

My dad made his famous salad. What a great meal! It’s one of my favorite dishes ever!!

Christmas morning we immediately opened gifts. :)  Afterwards my brother started making his famous spicy eggs. I put together the trifle I had planned for dinner:

And put together the beef wellingtons:

Then it was time for breakfast. We had orange rolls:

The rest of the day was spent relaxing, hanging out and napping. Eventually I had to get my butt up and cook dinner.

My plate:

Beef Wellington, roasted red potatoes and peas. I still wasn’t feeling so hot so I didn’t eat that much. I only had a couple bites of dessert. :( After dinner it was time to drive home and go to bed.

This morning I had two slices of English muffin bread, one with honey and butter and the other with Barney Butter:

I did tons of laundry, ran the dishwasher and put all the gifts away. We decided to all go to Souplantation for lunch.
