My Christmas [So Far!]

It always seems a little surreal that Christmas has come and gone. You spend so many weeks building up to the big day, and it’s gone just like that. Well, except for me, it’s really not. I still have a few more “Christmas” get-togethers over the next few days, and then it will be time to celebrate New Year’s right after that!

We have a few Christmas traditions in my family, but for the most part, we do something a little different each year. Starting with Christmas Eve… It was a pretty regular day in that I got up, taught some classes and trained clients. I was done by noon and headed out to do some last minute shopping. Luckily, I was able to get in and out of the mall pretty quickly and found what I needed right away! Greg had to work until mid-afternoon and then we headed over to my mom and stepdad’s house to visit and eat dinner. Right before we left, it started snowing, and just got heavier as the night went on. My (oldest) brother and his girlfriend (and her daughter) were there, and it was fun to hang out with them. Our plan was originally to drive around and look at Christmas lights, but the snow caused us to alter those plans and just go back home. Greg and I finished off the night by watching one of our favorite Christmas classics, Bad Santa. :)
