the ramblings of a wife, mommy, foodie, runner and follower of Christ.
We had a very merry Christmas this year!
On Christmas Eve we headed over to Marty’s dads house for the traditional Boden Christmas Eve celebration. We arrived a couple of hours early so I wrapped some last minute presents while watching The Santa Clause (one of my favorites!) Everyone else arrived around 7:30 and (for the remainder of the evening) we played guitar, sang, opened gifts and just enjoyed each others company until eleven or so.
After the party we headed to my parents house to spend the night so we could wake up and enjoy Christmas morning with my side of the family. Oh the joys of being married and splitting time between families (I’m only partially sarcastic – sometimes it can be really fun!)
After (what felt like) a few hours of sleep, I was waking back up to enjoy Christmas morning with my parents, sister, brother-in-law and baby Landon!
I just love these few hours on Christmas morning. I truthfully look forward to this time all year long.
The rest of the afternoon was spent with my family until we headed to Marty’s grandmothers house for dinner.
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! I consumed far too many Christmas cookies – but – tis the season!
What was the best gift you received? I’d have to say my new Tiffany lamp! I wasn’t expecting it and it wasn’t something I’d ever buy for myself but I absolutely ADORE it and think it’ll look just perfect in our eclectic little house.
