Although this Christmas brought many changes with the coordinating of schedules and combining of families, it was one of the merriest, if not THE merriest, I have ever had! We had a whirlwind of Christmas activity and multiple Christmas celebrations!
We started in Chattanooga on the 22nd! We did lots of last minute shopping, some relaxing, and some eating! I enjoyed being at Mom and Dad's to relax! Mom and I enjoyed wine while sitting in their "new" hot tub under the stars! It was WONDERFUL after the holiday hustle and bustle! After brunch with the family and a fun round of "dirty Santa," Chris and I hit the road and headed back to the boro!
Christmas Eve night we made trips to both houses, unloaded the car, reloaded the car, and then headed out to Chris' parent's house! We enjoyed last minute preparations and visiting there and then turned in for some much needed rest! Christmas morning brought a beautiful dusting of snow and a snugly brunch with Chris' family! Then it was off to pick up Lily!!! (YAY!)
We had "Christmas" eating and gift giving with Chris' family Christmas night and then headed to Chris' house to tuck Lily in! You see, most people know that Santa begins delivering Christmas Eve night, but it takes him 24 hours to go around the whole world delivering gifts! This year, he saved the best for last... LILY! So, we put out milk and cookies AND hot chocolate (we knew he'd be tired). So on the 26th, Lily awoke to Santa and Christmas again! It was PERFECT!
...and since then we have had more Christmas with his family and Christmas with friends....
...and we still have Christmas with my parents and brother to go....
...and with our friends and their kids!
Now, that's A LOT of Christmas!
And we are enjoying every moment together!
(Daddy trying to cure the hiccups! It didn't work, lol)
I hope everyones Christmas was as Merry as Mine! :-)
I. Am. Blessed.
