Last year, we started our own little tradition of staying home, our home, just the two of us, on Christmas Day.
I didn’t make the giant feast that I did last year. No turkey and all the fixin’s. I can’t remember if I wrote about it here or not, but we didn’t make it to my sister’s house this year for Thanksgiving, so I felt like I had just done the whole turkey, etc. SO, I made the filet mignon and potatoes au gratin that arrived on my doorstep a few weeks ago, courtesy of an Omaha Steaks Groupon.
We had a snuggly Christmas Eve…
Read the Christmas story at breakfast…
I thought at breakfast about how cool it is to read a story that’s 2011 years old… on an electronic device. Love it.
We opened presents…
Pardon the bed head and pile of laundry
About 20 minutes after the last present was opened, the Christmas tree CAME DOWN.
A lady who bought our old coffee and end tables off of Craigslist came by and took them, and I started an all-out organization project!
Gotta love a husband who vaccums! I know I do.
We are making room for some NEW FURNITURE! More on that later.
I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!
Tomorrow, we celebrate with M’s family. Looking forward to that, then more cleaning out/organizing, then getting back on the 2012 campaign trail.
