Christmas at our house

December 27, 2011

Christmas Eve with Mom

 Before we went away we had a little "Christmas Eve" time with my mom. One of our traditions is to open a gift, or our stockings on Christmas Eve and because we were going to be away until Christmas day we planned ahead and had a little faux Christmas Eve before we left!

Who couldn't use another plant? (Well, other then me, I've lost count of how many I have)
 I made my mom a "batch" of Cowgirl cookies in a jar. She got a kick out of it, and these cookies are seriously good!
Ollie really wasn't into this. He was so not happy to have this Christmas stuff on but he just looked so cute! 
 And of course Ollie gets some gifts too. He was inseparable from this toy for the rest of the night.

 A beautiful ornament from my mom (Another Christmas tradition; I get a new one for my tree every year)

Lavender solid  perfume and lemon grass essential oil. 

 Some money for our trip and hot pepper jelly. 

 Some treats for our trip and some cocktail picks. 

 He's very excited about these knives. I'll get some better pictures but they are seriously sexy knives!

And a couple of ties form me. It was a great night, and wow does my mom know how to spoil us!
