Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Hello! I hope everyone had a great holiday! I know we did. The month of December seemed to fly by. Probably because I was busy getting ready to host our first official Christmas Party in our new home. We moved in last year 2 weeks before Christmas! I did manage to get some decorating up before hosting my entire family. So, back to this year. This party was for my Hubby's co-workers and a few neighbors. It was a small group but of course I planned like there were 50 people coming over, lol. That's just my nature, go all-out! The house has to be perfect, the food has to be just right and a lot of it. I actually scaled down the food this year but boy did we put the food away! For Christmas this year we decided we'd head back to Florida to stay with my Parents and visit with family. We hadn't been back since we moved which was about 1 1/2 years ago! Again, time flies. We flew, which was great because it's a nice, short flight and because Hubby didn't have a ton of time off. The weather was great (actually too hot for my liking this time of year) and of course we had great food and good times with the family at different get-togethers, etc. No real plans for New Years. We don't really like going out because of all the crazies. We might end up out for dinner or just making it at home. I thought I'd share some of the various pictures from the entire month. There are more with Hubby and the Parents but didn't want to impose on their privacy. :)
Thank you so much to everyone that watches my Videos and follows my Blog and Twitter! Cheers to a great 2012!
