Christmas 2011 was wonderful. We spent a lot of time with family and friends and going back and forth between Monroe and Winnsboro. Scotty and I each took off a few extra days surrounding Christmas so the holiday wouldn't be as rushed as it usually is. Well, wouldn't you know we were still picking up a few last-minute things on Christmas Eve as is per our usual M.O. However, we did have some time for a few extras that we haven't normally been able to squeeze in -- dinner with the Mosses, Merry-go-round rides at the mall, bowling with Scotty's family -- or trying to...DS had not napped at all that day and we were dumb to think that this would be a successful outing. I got to bowl about half a game before ordering fried pickles and settling down with DS for a snack before we ultimately decided it was time to go. Needless to say, he slept well that night. I believe that was Christmas Eve Eve. On Christmas Eve, we went down to Gilbert to spend a few hours with the Sproles clan as we've been doing since we were kids. That night, we were back in Monroe for the annual Wright Christmas Eve Dinner which was held at Deb's house. Sunday morning, Christmas Day, we woke up to see that Santa had come -- and left David Scott way too much, I might add. We ate the traditional pancake breakfast at Mamaw's before heading back to Winnsboro for Christmas Day Dinner. As usual, the food throughout the holiday was great -- always a highlight of any holiday for this girl. Below are a few pictures to commemorate Christmas 2011:
We are very much looking forward to what 2012 has in store for us and our family. 2011 has been a great year for us all. We've been blessed beyond measure and we're happy to end the year on a high note.
