S: Christmas 2011
BC: Best Christmas Ever!!!
1: Our Christmas started with the annual "Bregg Family Christmas Party." KJ had to work, but came later. | The Steffes family hosted the party this year. The food was wonderful as usual, I got Ellens gift in the exchange, a drink mixer! Santa came and visited, and we had a wonderful time visiting with family.
3: Before Christmas Eve mass at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, we had dinner at Nick and Katy's House. Their house was decorated beautifully and the dinner fantastic! KJ especially loved the shrimp and cocktail sauce appetizer! My favorite part was the pie for desert! However, the prime rib, mashed potatoes, rolls, and salad did not disappoint. Christmas eve mass was very nice, Savanna did great. We even got to see Aunt Toni and Torij after mass.
5: Christmas Eve
6: Christmas Morning we got up when the Savanna woke up and left for mom and dads, we got there before Ellens required time! KJ and Ellen took a truck ride by Nick and Katys to see if they were awake!
7: Once we all were there we started opening up gifts. The big gifts this year were: a recliner for me and kj, savings bond for Savanna, Freezer for Nick and Katy, Cowboy boots for Ben, Varsity Jacket for Ellen, and fire pit for mom and dad.
8: We also did our traditional sibling exchange gift. I had Tara, Tara had KJ, KJ had Ben, Ben had Katy, Katy had Ellen, Ellen had Nick, and Nick had me.
15: Grandma Great | Grandpa Great | After we were done opening presents, Grandpa and Grandpa Weber came over. We gave them their gifts and they gave all of us ours. They gave Savanna so many Christmas books and cute christmas outfits. My favorite outfit they gave her was the one she is wearing in these pictures, it was so soft! As you can see, she loves her great grandparents!
17: Mom and dad cooked an AMAZING Christmas Dinner. It was the first Christmas that we had to sit at two different tables. Me, KJ, Dad, Audrey, Kenny, Wesley, Alivia, and Haleigh were in the front room. Grandma, Grandpa, Nick, Katy, Ben, Ellen, Mom, and Elizabeth were in the dining room. | Savanna was such a good girl during dinner, she layed in the living room and played quietly the whole time. For dinner we had ham (my favorite) turkey, mashed potatoes, biscuits and gravy, green beans, corn, grandmas home made bread, stuffing, apple pie, blueberry pie, pumpkin pie, and more. So good. After dinner the girls colored christmas pictures while we all did dishes and visited.
19: After everyone left for the day, Ben, Ellen, and KJ played, while me and Savanna tested out the new chair, worked great! As you can see on the opposite page, KJ got his turn to test it out as well
20: TWAS THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS AND ALL THROUGH THE HOUSE NOT A CREATURE WAS STIRRING, NOT EVEN A MOUSE...
21: It was a wonderful first Christmas for our little family. We are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends. For Our families personal Christmas gifts, Savanna got a stuffed bear, two Christmas books, and a new dress. We got champ declawed and also some treats. KJ got me two pieces to my Christmas village. Although KJ wanted a smart phone, I told him no, and got him something else. As I am creating this book in February and Christmas was a couple months ago, neither of us remember what it was! I suppose I'll just focus on making next year unforgettable!
