Christmas 2012: A Very Relaxing Christmas
This year was a bit different. Buds side of the family was out of town for Christmas, so we celebrated with them two weeks early. My sister worked on Christmas weekend, so we celebrated with my family a week early.
All that early celebrating left us with four days of simple family time. It was relaxing, not stressful, and blissful. Here's what we did:
Saturday we cleaned the house and relaxed. I had to go out and brave the crowds at JoAnn fabrics. The store wasn't too crowded, but traffic getting there was really bad! That'll teach me to do last minute shopping! We just hung out at home after that, and had a movie-a-thon in the evening (Muppet Christmas Carol and Elf), and ate pizza in front of the TV.
Sunday we picked up Kinsey and headed over to Great Grandma Lenore's house for dinner and a small Christmas party. On the way home, we swung through the drive through at Byerlys and picked up the groceries I had ordered ahead of time online. Talk about avoiding the last minute rush!
The night is still young (sort of)! Bud and I are going to watch Miracle on 34th Street before calling it a night.
