Worker Man's Family Christmas

So, I'm a little late, but I feel like I need to document the rest of Christmas before I can return to my random, newly-wed bliss (ahem.) postings.

After the first Christmas with Bon Bon, Don Don, and NJ we had Christmas with Worker Man's family. We had lunch after church and spent the entire afternoon (and evening) hanging out opening presents, being entertained by EC (the first granddaughter), riding around and playing games.

Here are some pictures:

Worker Man with his reindeer ears (a gift in everyone's stocking).

The Trinidads!
(Worker Man's sister, brother-in-law and EC)
Worker Man's brother and wife couldn't be there :(

Worker Man helping EC open her magnadoodle we gave her.

Big Al playing with the magnadoodle. I think he liked it more than EC :)

Worker Man got a new front door!
He actually installed it yesterday.
My dad was uber impressed (which says a lot)!

Worker Man's parents get each of their kids (us included) three gifts.
I got 3 AMAZING gifts this year.

Frye Harness Boots
(I've been dying for them)

Gorgeous Aldo Heels


REI daypack

I LOVED everything but even more important than the gifts we all got, is the blessing of spending time together.
We had a wonderful time and it was definitely a time of thanksgiving for me. I realized over this Christmas season how blessed I am to have married into such a phenomenal, God-loving family.


  1. I am so impressed that Worker-man is so talented to tackle that door project alone....could it have been the reindeer antlers that gave him such superpowers? I need to find a pair for Big Daddy so he can finish such daunting projects in such a timely manner!

    Loving ur blog!

  2. We are blessed to have you. Thank you for your sweet words. We look forward to many more Christmas celebrations together! LOVE your snow background!!! FMIL
