Christmas Hangover

Well folks, Christmas has come and gone, I'm back at work and I've got a Christmas hangover, which differs from a real hangover in the fact that there was no alcohol involved. I feel completely drained, a little dehydrated, and I'm so tired, but we had the best Christmas ever. We were surrounded by friends and family, and we felt so loved and grateful!
This is what to wear on Christmas day while you're running from house to house.

And of course, the obligatory Ugly Christmas sweater party. I made both of these with my mad crafty skills. Seriously, I am going to be the best mom ever. 

Family Christmas party. With eight brothers and sisters in my family alone, our family gatherins are pretty large. We have great food, tons of laughter, and so mch love.

Yes, my husband is wearing a pair of striped footie pajamas, sweat pants, and a giants shirt. He was putting on everything he received.
"Hey, I'm Chandler, could I BE wearing any more clothes?"
