Christmas at Home

I am behind, really really behind when it comes to sharing my wonderful time at home in Minnesota for Christmas.  I thought it'd make a perfect post for Daphne's {Semi} Wordless Wednesday.

First came lots of packing. . .

 Including some new gifts that I had opened from the bf.

As always, there were gorgeous decorations at the bf's family's house in Chicago.

 A patriotic tree at the airport. . .

And finally home!

 And this post now can include the most exciting news ever--I am the proud auntie to a new baby nephew born last night!  Can't wait to see my brother as Daddy. :)

I had a wonderful time in Minnesota spending time with my family.  There was a lot of sleeping in, shopping with my youngest brother (he can even outshop me!) and wonderful food.  I hope you all had a very special Christmas and are not feeling as behind as I am!
