Christmas

Christmas was wonderful. We had two Christmas mornings - one with my family in Alpine that consisted of a 6:00 am wake-up call by my 8 year old sister. She jumped on our bed and when I told her that no one else wanted to wake up until 8:00 this year, she stayed in bed next to me and told me Christmas stories until everyone else was ready to wake up. We opened presents, and I received the sewing machine I have wanted for months.

Sunday morning Kevin and I had our own celebration. We planned on eating a big breakfast together, but since we are moving this week we haven't gone grocery shopping in awhile. We feasted on Doritos and Junior Mints (the only thing in our cupboards) and received DVD players from each other (totally serious) and I also got the bookshelf I wanted and the cutest mini palm tree.

I love Christmas, and thought I would be sad when it ended but instead I felt grateful.

I hope yours was as imperfectly perfect as ours was.

Y'all are probably the most photogenic couple EVER. Glad you had a merry Christmas!

PS: EXCELLENT choice on the Junior Mints and Doritos. Just like the breakfast feasts of yore, I'm sure.
