Truly, this was one the best christmases I have ever had.
As some of you may know, my parents finalized their divorce last year, so holidays have been an adjustment in my house. 
But if anything, I think this adjustment has made me love my family even more.

On Christmas Eve, my mama and I went to the Christmas Eve service at our new church, and it was without a doubt the best Christmas Eve service I've ever been to. Later my sister, brother-in-law and niece came over, and we had dinner and opened presents. Then, as is our yearly tradition, we went to look at a house that has the most INSANE lights display I've ever seen. It puts Clark Griswald to shame. 

And, ok. Honestly y'all, every Christmas I swear I am the last kid on earth to open presents. Every year my parents always made us wait, while they woke up, while they made coffee, while they stuffed our stockings. It hasn't bothered me as I've gotten older, I like a lazy Christmas morning now.
But this year I woke up and my mom wasn't even home. 
Granted, she was out feeding our neighbors dogs, but still.
So I turned on the BBC Doctor Who marathon, and it felt like the Doctor was my family for a little while.
That was nice.
Then she and I opened presents, and I have to tell you. My mom is so sweet it makes me cry. Literally. I love her.

Later that morning I went to my dad's and opened presents, then spent the day watching Christmas movies.
And in my stocking I found this.

Betcha didn't know I have a weakness for the Biebs.
Well I do.
(I brushed my teeth with it this morning. It was life changing.)

The day after Christmas I woke up at 6:30 because I am a mad woman, and went shopping.
(today I went shopping again with my mom and bought more things. i have an addiction. send help.)

Do you celebrate Christmas?
If you do, how was it?
If you don't, how was your weekend?


  1. I LOVE THIS. Especially the Biebs toothbrush- your daddy has taste! (I mean, SANTA.) I had a wonderful Christmas, filled with Mythbusters and Doctor Who marathons (score!), Disc Golf, and apple cider!

  2. My Christmas Eve was nice. I found out we had a channel that showed Parks and Rec the whole day. I was like a kid on Christmas (HAHA I amuse myself). And then there was food and presents and family. And Christmas Day was just lazy doing nothing because we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve.

  3. I'm glad you had such a great Christmas! Mine was good, although I can't share your enthusiasm about the Bieber dental hygene products. Ha.
