I had a wonderful (but hectic) Christmas, & I hope it went well for all of you too!
We had DJ's family over for lunch on Christmas Eve. I made chicken parm & spaghetti. Yum! Afterwards we exchanged gifts. DJ's mom got us a Wii! And DJ's little sister loved the iPod touch we got her.
That night I went to my mom's house for our annual Christmas Eve party. I was exhausted by that time, & I swore I wasn't going to stay very late at all - so naturally I drove my aunt home at 10:00. Just for the record, she was also "not staying very late." You can see how well that worked out for us. But, it was a great party.
On Christmas morning I headed back to my mom's to open gifts with our immediate family - & by immediately family I mean14 of us. It was chaos as usual, but I wouldn't trade it for anything - except maybe a venue that wasn't 45 minutes away.
And to top it off, my mom, stepdad & sister came over for lunch yesterday so we could exchange gifts with DJ. My mom got us a ton of cute stuff for the house, my favorite of which is zebra accessories for my bathroom. It looks so good with the teal paint!
DJ & I got my sister her very first guitar. She's taking lessons at school this year & she loves it. DJ is a fantastic guitar player, so he was really excited to give it to her - & she loved it, although she was a little too shy to play for us.
My family left in the early afternoon, & DJ & I spent the rest of the day hidden from the outside world. I gotta tell you, after all that crazyness, being alone was the best part.
It's going to be a busy week, & I can't promise I'll be back before then. If I don't get a chance to say it, Happy New Year to you & yours from me & mine!
