Time travel, part 2: actual Christmas Eve

We spent the first part of Christmas Eve with my family, the Smiths. My mom made all kinds of yummy foods and treats. I was sick by the end of the day-I ate way too much! The girls enjoyed making Christmas cupcakes with their Grandma and we all enjoyed playing a gift swap game. Thanks Mom for a great time!

I had to post a picture of my parents Christmas tree because it is just so ginormous(and beautiful too!) Check it out-
Me and my brother Mark about to pounce on the goodies
We then headed over to Joey's parents house where me and the girls FINALLY got to meet my nephew, Elliot. He is so adorable and sweet! I haven't held a baby boy in a long time(I can't wait to hold one that is my own someday. We'll see if that happens....:)
Cali saying hello

We all loved playing with him and watching his little feet kick when he got excited
I had to post this picture of Joey's aunt Angie all decked out in elf attire. She is a really fun gal.
We had a great time everyone!

You're not seeing me in all my glory; I also dressed up as Mr. Kaybee at the KB Toys I used to work at, and other characters at the store to entertain kids shopping with their parents. But the most fun I have is when I am with family. You gotta get into the spirit of things! I enjoyed seeing my nieces & nephews this past holiday season...and especially remembering Olive Lucy...also the beautiful little tree that all the kids decorated in her was inspired by Nana Duenas & the kids made it special. Wait till you see what I do for Chinese New Year!

Aww, isn't little Elliot soooo cute!!! I sure wish we could all get together more often. I miss being home already.
