Okay now moving on to Christmas. For Christmas Eve we went to Zach's house and hung out with his family. This was different from last year. Last year we spent Christmas just me and Zach and went to a candlelight service. This was my first year in my 25 years that I did not go to a Candlelight service on Christmas eve... yea I know poor poor pitiful me but it was different for me. We did have a really great time with Zach's family and I always laugh a lot when we are with them. We then woke up Christmas morning around 6:45 yes you heard me right (well early for me at least) and hit the ground running. We went around to all the cousins houses and watched their children open gifts. This was really fun and they got some awesome things even though they are boys ages 3 to 10 they got some things even I was a little jealous of :). We opened gifts at Mawmaws' and then had lunch. After this we went straight to my grandmothers and spent time with my family and opened more gifts and ate even more ahhhh!!! My stomach hurts just thinking about it all! Then we headed to my parents with my oldest sister, her husband, and our two roomies (reminder: niece and nephew) to stay the night and do our Christmas with my immediate side of the family. That next morning we rested for a while and then opened gifts. Technology is awesome because we got to open gifts with my pregs middle sister that lives all the way out in the big AZ with her hubs by using SKYPE! Later we ate lunch then went to see my other grandmother who is in a nursing home and we showered her with gifts and spent some good family time with her. So not that you all were just dying to know but that is how our crazy Christmas went.
Zach and I did not get much for each other on actual Christmas because this was our early Christmas gift to one another:
|Yep Merry Christmas to us!|
We really feel like "grown-ups" now because we were pumped about purchasing a washer and dryer...Lame we know but aren't they fabulous!
However even though we did not really get each other gifts I received these as my Christmas gift the day before Christmas:
|I was so excited and absolutely loved them!!! (They are little worn now b/c I just took this picture on the 31st!)|
Well I guess this post is long enough (SIKE) it's so long but I hope you enjoy. I hope that everyone had a blessed Christmas and had time to slow down and remember what this amazing season is really all about!
Thanks be to God for sending his Son to be the Savior of me and this relentless and pitiful world!
Stay tuned there is more to come!
