Five on CHRISTmas Friday!

  1. A Muppet’s Christmas Carol

This has always been one of my favorite Christmas movies, it never gets old!

I watched it on Christmas Eve while wrapping Christmas presents and currently watching Frosty the Snowman while prepping Christmas lunch!   

2. Harry Connick Jr Christmas  

Me and my Mom first had this as a cassette and would listen to it throughout all of December! I remember taking it in the car with us and playing it everywhere we went.  Throughout the years, I’ve had to buy the CD a couple times, and now all I have to do is play through You Tube!

3. Amy Grant Christmas  

Another classic that I loved listening to and blasting  on a cassette in room growing up during Christmas!

4. December diet!  

This year I have definitely struggled with succumbing to taking full party in all things Christmas celebrations related.

It basically started when my mom got here for Thanksgiving, we had to take her to all of our favorite restaurants and then it was December and all the Christmas parties and festivities.  I think I just resigned to December being a bad month and that it has! Knowing we are going to Seattle and it’s impossible to be any sort of healthy when my step mom has monkey bread on tap, and all dinners are served with garlic cheese & onion bread and side dishes are half vegetable half butter, my step mom is basically the Paula Deen cook of the family and I can’t resist!

We have a wedding to go to in Mexico in April, so I will definitely be getting back on it in the new year!

We are celebrating with Gregs parents, at our house. Cooked all the traditional English goodies, bacon wrapped sausages, Yorkshire puddings!

  
And some table tennis after!   

5.Seattle!

We are flying out to Seattle tomorrow!  We are going to have Christmas on the 27th with my Dad, brothers, sister and my new nephew Riley!  So excited to meet him.  

One of my best friends, Stephanie who was a bridesmaid at my wedding, now lives in Seattle and one of my good friends from highschool is flying into Seattle for a couple days while we are there.  I’m so excited to also get to spend some time with friends while we are across the pond.

We are also going to take a trip to Vancouver to see some of our friends who used to live here.  They just had a new baby girl so will be fun to see Vancouver and catch up with them.

I hope you all have a great Christmas!
