Before I get to our third and final Christmas of 2014, I totally forgot to recap our New Year’s Eve! Well, the below pictures sums it up. Kev had to work, so we just laid low and hung out with our friends Danny & Sara and Sara’s family. And we ate. A lot. No better way to ring in the New Year than with Skyline dip, taco dip, ranch dip and spinach/asparagus dip.
A few days after NYE, we headed to St. Louis to celebrate Christmas with my side of the family. It’s not a trip to STL without a stop at the first Jack in the Box along I-64 West! These tacos though.
I drove and caught this adorable moment between these two. So presh.
Gracie was thrilled to be in the Lou. She just loves her grandma and grandpa.
Remember how I told you that our tradition is chicken wings, good beer and raunchy movies on Christmas with my side of the family? Repeat!
We woke up on Saturday morning and pretended it was Christmas all over again. We had Bailey’s in our coffee before we dove into the presents.
The girls got a special baggie of treats, which they devoured at record speed.
My parents loved their New Belgium Brewing sign that we got when we were in Colorado back in May. I debated keeping it for ourselves, but my parents have such a great spot for it in their house!
I was apparently really, really shocked to get a new pair of boots for Christmas. Ha ha
Once we finished opening gifts at my parents house, we continued our Christmas day tradition and headed over to my grandparent’s house for breakfast and more presents.
Gracie was spoiled, as usual.
And breakfast was delicious! Eggs, bacon, biscuits and potatoes. Nom.
We finished up at my grandparents just in time to meet up with our friend Mikey for lunch at Schlafly’s Tap Room. He was in town from Milwaukee with friends and I’m so glad we got to catch up because we don’t get to see him too often.
Most of Sunday was spent lounging in our PJs with the pups.
We headed out on Sunday just after the Bengals lost and stopped at Jack in the Box on our way out of town since…you know…we’re addicted to deep-fried tacos.
Third and final Christmas was wonderful!
