Hello everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
I actually didn’t take too many pictures, but I’ll share what I’ve got!
On Christmas Eve, I went to the 4:00PM mass offered at my church. It’s usually super crowded, and this year was no different. When the service ended – around 5:00PM – it was snowing outside. Luckily, I only had a short drive to my aunt’s house so it was no big deal.
We had a relaxed and casual dinner at my aunt’s house. I had a meatball sandwich with mozzarella and salad, but of course, didn’t take any photos. Chris and I stayed for a little while after dinner, but the roads started to look pretty bad and decided to head over to his parents’ house, which was our second stop of the night.
After a very slow drive, we made it safe and sound. We had dinner #2 (steak + lots of sides) and exchanged a few presents.
Chris and I were up around 7:30AM and headed downstairs to exchange gifts. Chris got me lots of good stuff – including a Camelbak water bottle and a giant mug – but the best gift of all was a custom iPhone cover with Stewie’s picture on it!
After getting ready for the day, we headed over to my parents’ house for breakfast and gifts.
After a few hours at my parents’ house, we headed back to Chris’s family for more gifts and ham sandwiches.
I eventually made it home around 8:00PM, and after a bit of cleaning up, I headed to bed; it was a tiring day!
I woke up this morning with a bit of a headache; I guess pounding tons of sugar in the form of Christmas cookies will do that! I ate a small bowl of cereal and had a mug of coffee before heading to spin class.
Afterwards, I had an errand to take care of for the house – we’re supposed to be closing on Friday – and stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts for breakfast #2 (my stomach was grumbling!).
Now, I’m ready to tackle my to-do list for the day. First up is organizing/putting away all of our Christmas gifts!
What was your favorite Christmas gift this year?
