I had two sweet vacation days left for the year so you bet I took them the two days after Christmas and had an extra long break from work. It. Was. Glorious. I'm so blessed. Caleb and I were giddy all week to finally have our FIRST married Christmas!!
|Yeah, its blurry. Woops.|
His parents are back in town so we spent last Saturday with all of Caleb's family doing our first round of Christmas hang outs! We started the afternoon off with a great worship service at Erin and Jared's church, the in-laws picked up AMAZING dinner (Chickfila, as if there was another option), and we ended it by opening presents and having a hilarious round of Hedbanz.
Christmas Eve was with my Dad's side of the family, as usual. They all absolutely spoiled us, and it was such a blast.
The very next morning Caleb and I decided to start the tradition of baking a sweet together...we chose BROWNIES. Our fave!
While those baked, we opened presents!! It was SO fun watching him open what I'd given him. It was a time to remember, that's for sure.
Inside of this giant box were a pair of shoes Caleb had been dying for! This was his "big ticket item" :)
and mine? An incredible straightener. He's so sweet. Recently, my long bangs have been frying (sad story)...I've been talking about wanting to buy a Chi for a while, and he totally remembered! I'm one happy girl.
After we spent a little time alone, we ventured off to my grandparents to spend the rest of the day with them. It was amazing. My grandparents got us INCREDIBLE luggage and I cannot even WAIT to use them!!
That evening, we were falling asleep by like 7 so we decided to head home, and pop in a movie.
I still can't believe Christmas has come and gone. It was fantastic waking up with him, and not wanting to get out of bed just so I could savor that first Christmas that much longer...but you know what? I'm looking forward to every single day with my husband, and that's a blessing in itself. I hope you all had a great one!!
It was SO good to see you, girl!! I love your face when you opened the shoes! Too cute! :)ReplyDelete
