Weekend Wrap Up : Christmas

We hope everyone had a FABULOUS Christmas.
We sure did!
Ours was equal parts family, friends, rest, good food and wine and spoiled with presents.
And spoiled with food and treats at Grandmas house on Floyd's part.  Someone put shredded cheese on every bowl of his food and now he's refusing to eat at our house...

Thursday it was so warm I was about to get in a 4 mile run in preparation for the weekend calories.  
I ran my fastest 5k in a while so I consider it a win.
Thursday evening my mom and I hosted Mister and his parents over for dinner.
We made THE most delicious ribs, mashed potatoes, asparagus and burgundy mushrooms.  While the ribs were amazing, the mushrooms are entering our meal rotation, they were that good.  We cooked them in the crock pot all day and they smelled heavenly. 
 Friday was a magical Christmas.  We spent the morning having coffee and presents with my mom and then headed to Mister's family for brunch and presents.  
Mom and I made our Christmas Monkey Bread that my aunt has always made.
You prepare it the night before so it rises and then cook it in the morning.  This year it had a mind of it's own...
I promise we saved it and it was DELICIOUS.

Floyd was POOPED all Christmas morning and spent a good chunk of present opening sleeping.  
Once he opened his stocking and snazzy new collar from Gma he was uninterested. 

We had a great time at home with family and spent the rest of the weekend with friends and relaxing.  
Now on to birthday week!
