Christmas Fun!

I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday! 
I was a bit sad that I couldn't go home for the Holidays. Not because of the Christmas holiday really, but because it's the only time of year that my friends and family are usually in the same place. But instead of being all down in the dumps about it, I decided to make the best of it and have a wonderful time here with my Chicago family. Many of my friends here were on their way home for the Holidays but I was lucky that two of my good friends could make it over to hang out for some food, movies and Jameson! We watched so many movies and talked and lauged so much that my checks hurt from smiling! I spent all christmas eve baking cookies in preparation. I don't bake, i just never took the time to learn. So I have recently decided to change that! I am really getting into this whole Susie Homemaker thing right now, I really felt great about cooking and i am going to try new recipes and give it a go! Jason came over this afternoon and made amazing Mexican food for a lovely Christmas dinner!! Oh my oh my it was absolutely delicious! Kat came over just in time for us all to exchange presents, watch Home Alone and warm up Jameson cocktails and chocolate chip cake:) It was a perfect evening of laughs and love! Just what we all needed for the Holidays! It was simply perfect, and I was so glad we could spend time with Jason and his first Christmas here in Chicago! The evening ended perfect with a little photoshoot in the Snow!
 Right after dinner enjoying some Home Alone:P
 Yummy Chocolate Chip Cake!
 Jason being a goof:) So cute!

 Classic Family Photo Opts! 

 All the pictures with snowballs look like they're on fire! hahaha

 There were so many more photos but my camera decided to not capture them and the batteries died. Sadness fell over us:( More fun camera time in the snow a little later! 

Hope you all had just as lovely of an Holiday:)
