Christmas Day 2009

Merry Christmas from the girls!  They dressed up just for you!  Really it took us three nights to get this picture...and it wasn't the girls fault, my camera was blurry for some reason. 
We had an enjoyable Christmas eve with my family, and Christmas morning with Timm's family.  Timm and I hosted both events at our home, normally breakfast is at his brother's home.  I wanted everything to be perfect and stressed myself out over it...for was all perfect!  We smoked a couple of briskets for 12 hours for our Chirstmas Eve celebration along with jalepeno poppers, sausage balls, stuffing, and more. 
Christmas morning was gorgeous and sunny so we got to use our new dining hall for breakfast.  It worked out really well, the guys even started up a campfire in the pit.  Sidepork, biscuits and gravy, sausage, egg casserole, fuit salad, and cinnamon pull-aparts were eagerly devoured by all.  It's a Martin family tradition.

Presents were exchanged along with laughter, hugs, friendship and family time.  Bill (shown in the middle) enjoyed his 2nd day off this month.  He's been working at City Center...busy, busy, busy for their opening this month. 

Later in day, we headed over to my sister's home for dinner with our family and the in-laws.  Everything was delicious but we were all so stuffed we never made it to dessert...or the movies.  I think we all suffered from food  Just enjoyed a quite, peaceful evening back at home. 

Merry Christmas everyone!  I hope you all enjoyed the time spent with family and friends along with the magic of the season.  The magic of Christmas is not in the presents, it's in His presence.
