Hello! Welcome to the post-Christmas world. How is everyone feeling? I had a really nice Christmas, so here are some pictures that I didn’t show you the last couple of days.
The treats I made for my coworkers. Super simple but always a big hit! Pretzel, rollo, M&M. Brilliance.
The night before Christmas Eve, I spent some time just enjoying the light of our Christmas tree. There’s something so calming about it. It’s one of my favorite things to do at Christmas time.
After I posted on Christmas Eve, I headed over to my parents. We all spent time together during the afternoon and then had our Christmas dinner. So delicious! I love our Christmas placemats too.
Then we had some delicious chocolate chess pies that my mom made from scratch. They were bomb.
Then after watching the Jim Carrey “How the Grinch Stole Christmas”, we got our new Christmas pajamas. Then we read the Christmas story and headed off to bed.
Christmas morning we were up bright and early and headed up to the slopes for our annual family Christmas Day of skiing. It was a lot of fun and the weather was great.
The sky was completely clear, so looking over the mountain into other valleys was completely breathtaking. I seriously live in SUCH a beautiful place!!
Then when we got back we had some food before opening presents. It’s funny how even though I obviously still love that part of the day, it’s to the point where we can put it off until 4 PM and that’s ok. I remember when we had to wait until after skiing to open presents growing up and it was torture! haha! Yes, people, I think this means I’m growing up.
The night ended with a game of Monopoly that we actually were able to play all the way through to the end, houses, hotels and bankruptcies…the works! My sister kicked our trash. Also, we couldn’t find the dice so we just downloaded an app for it. haha!
All in all, it was a very nice Christmas season. But the festivities don’t stop there, people! New Year’s next week and my GOLDEN BIRTHDAY one month from yesterday. Yes, I’ll be bringing that up as often as possible. Let the countdown begin!
But for now it’s back to the grind. Off to work I go.
