Merry Christmas!

Hey guys!

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas and got everything you wished for…and if not, just let me know and I’ll make a few calls…Santa and I? Yeah, we’re kinda tight…

I even have the shirt to prove it! 😉

Broccoli Babe and I spent last night at my parent’s house and celebrated Christmas with them this morning since I’m working the night shift tonight.

Working holidays may have it’s negatives, but knowing you’re getting time and a half does wonders for the psyche.

Just more money to buy myself gifts like this!

To Heather from Heather

I swear every time I go shopping for my sister, I ALWAYS end up with something for myself. I actually had reverse-buyers remorse on this one…didn’t buy it when I first saw it and regretted it for about 36 hours…the time it took for me to get back to the mall and snatch up the next to last one!

C’mon, it’s houndstooth…and it was 40% off!

We’ll just ignore the fact that a pair of jeans and a sweater happened to find their way into my bag as well. 😉

I was the first to wake up this morning and after starting up a pot of coffee (priorities, ya know), I proceeded to pull my unwilling sister out of bed, tip toe into my parent’s bedroom, and then jump on the end of their bed saying, “Santa came! Santa came!”

What can I say, Christmas brings out the kid in me…must’ve been the Christmas Story marathon from the night before…

After everyone was gathered in the living room with their coffee, I took it upon myself to play “Santa”…I figured it was alright with the big guy, given our connection. 😉

That’s my mom with the Sony E-Reader that I got her…she was totally absorbed!

In a matter of minutes, the beautifully wrapped packages from beneath the tree were rendered to a sea of torn paper, strings, and bows that covered the living room floor. I think everyone was pleased with the gifts they received, but I have to say mine was the best…

*Sappy moment alert*

No material object could compare to the gift of having BB there to share Christmas morning with me.

After the wrapping paper sea had been parted, I snuck off to the kitchen to prepare Christmas breakfast.

My good friend Jennifer knows me too well. We exchanged gifts a few days ago and she surprised me with this red velvet pancake mix from World Market.

And they were the best (and easiest) Christmas pancakes ever!

The rest of the day was spent visiting more of my family and then BB and I were lucky to get a couple of hours alone before he left to see his family and I laid down for a nap. All and all, a low key Christmas, but honestly, I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way.

What was the highlight of your Christmas morning?

What was for breakfast?

PS, I shared a story for Friday’s post that I later decided I wanted to limit it’s viewing…instead of letting it go all willy-nilly in the interwebs. Just let me know if you would like to read it and I’ll email you the password. 😉

  2. Haha my sister and I still wake up my parents like that on Christmas morning too! I’m glad we’re not the only ones who still act like kids on Christmas. 😉

    It sounds like you had a great Christmas girl! That must have been so nice to have BB there too!

    The highlight of my Christmas was just spending all day with my family and playing board games. And for breakfast we had fruit salad, scrambled eggs, toast/bagels, bacon, and a baked oatmeal recipe I made from Oh She Glows. It was a feast!

      Wow, what a breakfast! And it doesn’t happen very often, but I absolutely LOVE family game nights!

      I hope I never lose that childlike feeling that I always get around Christmas…it’s what makes the day even more special!

  5. My brothers and our families and I all stayed at my mom’s house, we did it last year since it was her first christmas after my dad died and we’ve decided it’s a new tradition. All of our kids were still sleeping and we woke them up because we were so excited…it was awesome!
