Christmas 2009

Christmas was pretty relaxed this year. We ordered food from honeybaked ham to take the cooking load off of anyone.

Mom, Haylie, and Grandma Pat. We had fun watching the kids open presents.

Great Grandma Boydie hanging out.

Jackie's Cat Larry enjoyed Christmas morning as well. He had fun hiding in all the Christmas decorations.

I got up bright and early and went over to Aunt Jackie's house to watch Haylie and Sage open presents from Santa. Jackies house was glowing with Christmas lights and tons of presents.

And more presents!

Charles Aris, Inc Christmas Party

Every year my company has our annual strategic planning meeting and then we have our Christmas Party afterwards. 2009 was a rough year due to the recession but the party was still fun. I did not stay as late as I usually do because I was very pregnant with the twins.
These are my friends Jody & Caroline

Can't really tell I am pregnant there but I was avoiding the camera since I was so bloated.

Caroline, Edie, Jody, & Christina
