A very Merry Christmas

It was a very Merry Christmas and we are finally recovered from all the cooking and present opening and dishes. Because our living room wall hasn’t been repaired yet from the plumbing work I was hesitant to decorate for Christmas. Then on Saturday the Man and I were like elves on speed and out up a lot of our decorations.

Then we all packed up and headed to my mom’s house to celebrate. We got to see both sides of our families which was lovely. Christmas morning brought lots of fun gifts for all of us, but especially for the youngest member of our family – Abby.

She was spoiled. And we learned she is VERY good at opening her own gifts. I wish we had been ready to record because she was adorable tearing into wrapping paper and tissue alike.

Luna is home being watched and getting a vacation from the puppy so we will just call this “furbaby” Friday. I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! I know that we did and were very blessed to spend it with our families.

Another year…

This month is just flying by and I can’t believe it is only *gasp* ten days until Christmas! My to do list keeps getting longer and the days seem to miraculously grow shorter.
The beginning of the month went by so fast that I almost forgot to tell you that I am another year older – 33 to be exact. My birthday weekend was spent with my mom who thankfully watched the crazy puppy while I did a bit of Christmas shopping (and spoiled me with some amazing sweaters and directive to buy some things for myself while shopping for others!) I also got to replace my four year old cell phone because I dropped it in water.
While I was really upset because it was a careless accident I was overdue for an upgrade. Thankfully I only had to spend $30 for a brand new phone. So, as I type this, I am on my fancy New LG G3 which is AMAZING. I’m not one to spend hours on my phone. Quite the opposite, I actually tend to stay off my phone once I’m out of work. This new phone has spoiled me, though. Easier to use and a bigger screen, I may just have to start updating my blog more often just for an excuse to play with it!
Now I’m off to do some much overdue holiday crocheting. Hope everyone is having a good time getting ready for the holidays!
