Family time - Now that Justin & I are our own little family of two, we made sure to spend some time celebrating by ourselves. We spent Christmas Eve at home, making dinner and partaking in general holiday cheer. Then we packed our bags and headed to our parent's for the next few days. We're pretty fortunate that our parents only live a couple miles apart so we were able to see everyone.
Delicious food - My father-in-law's birthday is December 31st, so we decided to have a little birthday dinner celebration early. We had lobster, steak, and vanilla bean cheesecake. It was so much deliciousness that we felt like we were sinning.
Presents - Although I enjoy reading other people's present recaps, they're just not my style. But you can expect to see some new house decorations on the blog soon :)
Savior's birth - We hung our stockings, wrapped presents, baked cookies, lit candles, decorated the tree, and decked the halls all to celebrate the birth of Jesus. And His life and death are the greatest gift of all.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
~John 3:17, NIV
So how was your Christmas? I'd love to hear about it! Have a great rest of the year! I'll be back blogging in 2012.
