Another Christmas has come and gone. It’s hard to believe that this year is almost over.
This Christmas was a great one. We spent all of Christmas Eve with Derek’s family. We opened presents in the morning, watched football and a few movies (one of the movies, Saint Ralph, was SO good! I highly recommend it.) We ate our yearly Chinese dinner, complete with won tons, soy sauce chicken, and pepper steak. It was a great day.
We spent Christmas day with my family. After opening presents, we headed over to Cindi’s house for brunch. Derek, the boys and I have never gotten to go to Christmas brunch. Normally we split Christmas day between our two families, but this year each family got a full day. It was so much easier and much less stressful. We were able to relax and enjoy both days much more. Anyway, after brunch we headed back to my parents house to play with our new toys and ended the day with a delicious prime rib dinner.
And how is this for Christmas spirit? My sister and I made these sweatshirts many, many moons ago. My mom still wears them…she is a teacher after all. If these don’t scream teacher sweatshirt then I don’t know what does. Love you mom! Even though you still wear these.
Now that Christmas is over, let the shopping begin! I got an Ikea giftcard, and lots of moolah. It’s going to be a fun week!
