I hope that everyone reading this had a wonderful Christmas with friends and family! Truth be told, I didn’t take that many pictures this year. But, the truth is, not many photos is sometimes the sign of a great time. I did manage to snap a few so here are a few highlights. I’d love to hear about your Christmas in the comments below!
The first stop on the Christmas party train was my brother and sister-in law’s condo for breakfast. We met my mother and father in law there just like we did last year for a lovely breakfast and time together. It has become a little tradition of ours since getting married, and it’s a nice way to start the morning.
We enjoyed lots of delicious food and drinks and then exchanged some gifts.I am particularly excited about receiving How Not to Die by Gene Stone & Michael Greger. It’s been on my reading list forever and I can’t wait to read it! Thank you to my sister and brother in law for hosting a lovely morning!
Around 1:00 we headed to my parent’s house for more delicious food and some more gift exchanging. Luckily, we started out with some gifts and hanging out before we broke in to our next meal. My niece loved all of her gifts but especially loved her snow globe. She loves snow globes and my parents got her a new one with Mickey and Minnie of course.
It was fun hanging out with everyone, enjoying some yummy foods, and of course catching as many hugs from my niece as humanly possible! Around 4:15, we headed back in the car for our final stop!
Party Three Stop:
Our last stop was for Daniel’s father’s side of the family. They had a delicious spread of appetizers, drinks, and sweets. I didn’t manage to eat much more, but the spread was impressive! We got to spend time with some out of state family which was so special because we have missed them. We spent the evening catching up with everyone in a relaxed atmosphere which was much appreciated after our whirlwind day.
Although yesterday was hectic running around, I feel blessed to have so many family close by to be able to visit. Some we don’t get to see very often and some are only here for the holidays, but it was a blessing to see them. Family is definitely a wonderful gift and I was feeling the love after a fun, food-filled, family-filled day celebrating the birth of Jesus.
