This Christmas was absolutely beautiful. It snowed all day & gave us a white Christmas! Mom surprised us all by decorating the basement (she was adamant about not decorating this year!) and we enjoyed drinks and presents beside the fire. Simply delightful. I was blown away by the goodies Santa left and I’m guessing it had something to do with leaving some treats & tequila for Santa. The next morning, I came downstairs to see a returned note, all of the milk and chocolate covered pretzels eaten, annnnd well…the tequila bottle completely empty. (Santa! I hope you got back to the North Pole ok!!!)
One of my favorite part about Christmas is giving gifts. For my baby niece, she got an African American baby doll from her Auntie Shea this year! (Hey, just trying to start her young with no prejudices!)
Buuuut, my favorite gift given this year was to my parents from my brother, sister-in-law, and me. Their 25th Wedding Anniversary is this January 4 and to celebrate, we are sending them on a 4 day, 3 night stay in a cabin in Asheville, NC! They were completely surprised and mom even shed some tears. They so deserve this weekend away.
So how was your Christmas, friends? Was Christ celebrated? Did Santa come to your house (sober)?
