I always find it interesting to see how others celebrate their Christmas holidays.
For some it means gathering family and extended family.
For others it means a small get together at home.
Some families open gifts together, some families open gifts as they wake up.
My family is small and close. I always enjoy coming home to see them (Holiday related or not).
Last year Tim and I spent Christmas with his family. I love Tim’s family as much as my own. We were supposed to drive to see them again this but plans change. Hopefully next year we will be able see them for the holidays again! It’s crazy (overwhelming and also crazy) that plans can change so soon!
I didn’t make an effort to take a bunch of family selfies, photos of my family or scan the internet to get the best Holiday dessert ideas. Maybe this is why I win the worst blogger of 2014…oh well next year I can win best blogger. There is a New Year’s Resolution for everyone. Anyways, we had a cute Christmas tree at my parents house and celebrated as a family.
Here are some photos of my family that were not taken on Christmas:
My Christmas was pretty quiet. We did our traditional Christmas of opening gifts and having an early Christmas dinner (around 3pm). Then we just relaxed and sat in a food coma the rest of the day. It was honestly the relaxing and rest I needed.
The craziest part of my Christmas was I didn’t drink any coffee!
The next day, mom and I went and got some nice clearance items. I ended up finding a blazer at New York and Company as well as a couple pairs of pants. I always love a good sale. I’ve always found a few good updates to my wardrobe post Holiday season (mostly because everything is on sale). Boxing day was no exception.
My Christmas was very laid back (exactly what I needed and liked). I have no complaints and I’m truly glad to have enjoyed the company with family. Of course I missed my significant other I had a really good Christmas with my family and friends.
Questions for you:
