I hope you all had a great Christmas! I sure did! Christmas morning I was the first one up (always), so I had my coffee and waited on everyone else to get up. My sister, her boyfriend, and my husband took forever to wake up! I unsuccessfully tried to wake them multiple times haha. When they finally got up, we first opened presents. I thought I was going to be smart and let the dogs into their stockings first so that they'd chew on their bones and leave us alone. Well, Charlie grabbed her entire stocking when we gave it to her and brought it to our bedroom! It was hilarious. I guess she didn't want to share with my parents' dogs. My parents' dogs had no interest in the bones we got them. After presents, we ate my mom's traditional breakfast casserole! Mmmm. It gets better every year. Then, we had to take pictures in our matching PJs (another tradition of ours). Then, Larry and I went to his Granny's to spend some time with his family. We ate lunch with everyone, and then we played white elephant. I ended up with my own gift so I was happy. ;) Later on, we headed back to our house and we put Larry's present from me to use! I got him an electric smoker, so we smoked a turkey. I'm usually not big on baked turkey, but smoked? It was GOOD. Mom also made my mawmaw's cornbread dressing recipe and I made my aunt's green bean casserole recipe. So we ate good for supper! My sister and her boyfriend left the next day, but my parents stayed with me until Sunday night (Larry went hunting this weekend). So the Wallace household is empty now after a week full of guests! So bittersweet!

  1. I love this look!! So great that your family spends so much time together. The matching PJ tradition is really cute too. :) And oh boy, Christmas food... hoping that I walked most of it off at our all-day-mall-day tradition. :) XO -Alexandra

  8. I absolutely LOVE this look on you! I've been looking for a shirt so similar to yours from Express but haven't been able to find it or anything similar. I'll have to keep an eye out at Target for yours. So pretty! The colors here are great too. I'll have to try my blanket scarf with my burgundy blazer!

    Your Christmas pjs are SOO cute! Love those fair-isle leggings :D
