Christmas Day

After we finished up at Mrs. Charlotte’s and Mr. Rusty’s we headed to Little Mama and Big Daddy’s house for the big Parker breakfast.  It’s where all of Mr. Rusty’s siblings get together to exchange gifts. I think it’s a nice tradition that the men do all the cooking for the breakfast and let the women have a morning off πŸ™‚

Kye had fun playing in Big Daddy’s chair

and spent the entire time talking on the phone

We do a Secret Santa exchange where the adults all draw names. Aunt Debbie picked me and got me a cute silver purse. I picked Barry and got him a super soft shirt from J.Crew. Uncle Steven picked Zach and got him a thing to help wind up an extension cord or something. And Zach picked Mr. Rusty so he got him In Living Color Season 3 on DVD. He was sooooo pumped to give it to him!

He won’t wear matching pjs yet he will make this face for a picture. Really???

The Stella & Dot lovin’ continued at Little Mama’s and Big Daddy’s

Aunt Karen picked Casey’s name and got her a cute little necklace that is now retired, but you can get some great sale prices on other retired items here!

We got Little Mama the La Coco Gold Pearl Strand

Little Mama bought Mrs. Charlotte and Aunt Karen the La Coco Silver Pearl Strand

and she got Casey this adorable ring (here’s a link to more cute Stella & Dot rings)

Big Daddy picked out these earrings for Little Mama – so sweet! (here’s some similar to them)

Little Mama bought both Courtney and I some Stella & Dot too! Finally someone got me some of it πŸ™‚ These are the Fringe Hoop Earrings

Aunt Debbie is in love with Stella & Dot and between Uncle Steven, Little Mama, and Mrs. Charlotte she got hooked up! She’s wearing the Audrey Cluster Bracelet, the Gold Vintage Twist Bracelet, and the Silver Bardot Spiral Bangle. Uncle Steven also bought her the gorgeous Charlotte Statement Necklace (I’m jealous!)

Didn’t I tell ya? On the phone the WHOLE time…put Judge Judy on the TV and he’d be Big Daddy Jr πŸ™‚

We finished up at Big Daddy and Little Mama’s right around Kye’s nap time so we headed back to Mom’s house (well all of our house at the time) to rest and get ready for Christmas round 2! She made a yummy Brunswick stew for dinner. After I had a much needed nap that soup hit the spot! I was SO sick and it really helped me out πŸ™‚ It was nice just our little family enjoying Christmas Dinner together!

I promise he prayed first πŸ˜‰

Ready for Christmas Round 2??? I know you are, you’ve only been waiting 3 weeks for it!
