Weekending | Christmas Style

Happy Monday even though I’m at work today and my weekend went by entirely way too quickly. But goodness, was it full of all kinds of Christmas goodness! I’m not one to really wish away weeks but I’m ready for this week to hurry up and be over! I’ve got a four day week and then start my Christmas vacation. I think I can make it!

I didn’t take a ton of pictures this weekend because I really tried to be present with all my family but here’s a few tidbits of what we got into!


Every year, Cory and I go spend the night at my grandparents house and watch It’s a Wonderful Life. It’s one of our favorite traditions! Plus, they feed us like we are starving college kids. You just can’t beat a home cooked meal!


Saturday afternoon, we had our first family Christmas party at my other grandparents house in Greenville, which was way more delicious food and afterwards we went to Roper Mountain Lights.


I wouldn’t really recommend them. We sat in line for almost an hour and it just wasn’t really worth it but we still had fun with my family {even though you can’t see them all back there!}.


On Sunday, the band decided to have their Ugly Christmas sweater day. Check out Selah looking at the reindeer on Cory’s shoulder.


These guys are nuts, you guys! But I’m so thankful to have this group of friends in our life.


Once we got home from lunch with the band, I finally made my Christmas wreath. I kept it simple but I really like the way it pops against our door.


And the rest of the day was spent doing this right here! Cory was shocked when he found out I had never seen any of the Star Wars movies so he’s forcing me to watch all of them before the new comes out. :) A day laying on the couch, snuggling with my pups and watching a movie? I didn’t hate it!

How was your weekend? Have you started any of your Christmas traditions yet?

  1. I have started all of the Star Wars movies too so that I can go see the new one with Jason! They aren’t as bad as I was expecting ;)

  2. You made that wreath? Thats so cute!
    Corey in that sweater – haha!!!!
    I love the tradition you do with your grandparents. What a treasure to still have them in your life.

  3. Love your wreath and your tree is so pretty! It’s A Wonderful Life is one of my faves – we still need to get that one in this year :) HOw fun to watch it with your grandparents, such a great tradition!

  4. Sounds like you had an amazing Christmas weekend! Thank you for reminding me that we need to watch “It’s A Wonderful Life”! It was my grandmother’s favorite. She told me once that it just wasn’t Christmas until she got to watch it. She wasn’t the nicest person in the world, but she had her moments and she really got into Christmas.
    I love your wreath! Cory’s sweater is hilarious. Reagan would have snatched the reindeer for himself. (He is teething, so everything goes in his mouth!)
    We are going to see lights in Natchitoches Thursday. I grew up going. There were no fireworks, no crowds, no parking/attending fees, just wonderful family fun on one downtown street. Now it has gotten out of hand. We may not be going much longer and it really hurts to think of missing it because they got greedy.
    I have actually seen all the Star Wars movies, but Justin has proposed the same thing. He wants us to watch them all before the movie comes out on dvd. Sounds like a lot of husbands have been thinking the same.
    Your tree is beautiful!

  5. KC wants me to watch the star wars movies as well before we go see the new one, but i told him we have to watch a girly movie for every star wars he makes me watch, and he changed his mind hahaha. womp womp. i have never seen the wonderful life movie, need to watch it to see what all the fuss is about ;)
