I hope that you all had a very merry Christmas!
We enjoyed a very nice, relaxing holiday...we were blessed with lots of yummy food and many thoughtful gifts.
Christmas Eve, Chris and I went to the 3:15 service at our church and enjoyed the candlelight singing. Then we headed home and I whipped up a few different snacks. We enjoyed those and then opened gifts with Mimi!
Christmas Day, we got up at 6:30 and I drove Chris 21 miles out so that he could do his intense run with the crazy wind at his back. He got home around 9:30 and then we opened our stocking gifts. A few of my favorite gifts this year:
: new perfume
: tickets to see Pitbull in concert
: Essie nail polish (2)
: gift cards (Target, JC Penny, Amazon, iTunes, Michaels, Kohls)
: Tyme hair iron (flattens and also curls)
Afterwards, Mimi and I made our Christmas lunch...ham, potato salad, deviled eggs, green bean casserole, jello salad, rolls...and then enjoyed a nice meal together. We spent the rest of the day relaxing and reading and watching Christmas shows, and then later that evening Chris and I started watching Season 3 of The 100 on Netflix!
We had invited Aspen to join us for Christmas Day lunch...but she unfortunately was sick with a fever so was unable to join us. Hopefully soon.
Chris and I were lucky to have Monday off work!!! We enjoyed another relaxing day, with a lunch out at Red Robin and a trip to Home Depot and the grocery store. Now we are winding down and preparing for a four day work week -- and then another long weekend ahead woo hoo!
