Merry Christmas!

It is has been such a great week already! Avatar on Monday night, sushi with good friends last night and tonight we're going to finish wrapping gifts. Tomorrow we both work half days and then we're going to celebrate the holiday with Garth's family. I'm really excited because Garth is playing Santa Clause this year. Growing up, Garth's uncle used to dress as Santa and bring in all the toys and put them under the tree while the kids hid and sneaked peeks of Santa. So they are continuing the tradition with Garth as Santa for our sweet niece. I can't wait to see her face when Uncle Garth comes in! Don't worry, pictures to come...
My mother-in-law makes this incredible lamb with amazing potatoes every holiday. But this year we all begged her for delish bobotie. It's a South African meal that is out of this world amazing. So I'm looking forward to THAT tomorrow too!
Christmas Eve will be amazing for sure. Christmas morning will be just Garth and I and we are super excited about it. We are going to watch Christmas movies and enjoy a mamosa and cinnamon rolls before heading to my cousin's to celebrate with my family. Ijust love this time of year with family and friends, bring on the fun!
And to all of you lovies, have a very Merry Christmas! I pray you all have wonderful fellowship with friends and family and make many happy memories!
