Hi everyone! Hope you all had a great Christmas surrounded by your loved ones!
It’s been a little crazy with all of the festivities last week, a wedding this weekend, and my sister and I are currently on a mini-road trip across the state for some job interviews that she has, and since I didn’t get a Friday Five post up, I thought I’d share some of my favorite moments from the Christmas week!
one // I was feeling very inspired by the Gingerbread Houses post from Blogmas that I decided to get one to do with my nieces and nephew. I was so excited when I found this “mini-village” set because it meant each of them could do their own and decorate it the way they wanted to. The kids seemed to really enjoy doing it, but that may have been because they ate almost as much candy as they used to decorate their houses with!
two // I’m obsessed with Alex and Ani bracelets, so I expected to get a couple for my birthday and Christmas. But I never expected to get ones so meaningful to me. My sister gave me the silver one for my birthday, and my mother-in-law gave me the “Like a Daughter to Me” bracelet for Christmas. I am BEYOND blessed with an incredible sister and a mother-in-law, both of whom I love spending time with.
four // Speaking of great presents, my entire family nailed it with my presents this year. I know it’s not all about the gifts, and I do like giving presents a lot, but let’s be real, it’s fun to get some too. I am so excited about my Eyefi card for my camera that my parents got me— it lets you sync your photos directly from your camera to your phone, iPad/tablet, or computer! And I’m enjoying re-reading all of the Harry Potter books that Jeff got me, especially since we are going to HP World NEXT WEEK!
So yeah, all-in-all, it was a great Christmas! Even if I hadn’t have gotten so many great gifts, it was a wonderful time spent with family.
