I must admit I’m still in a bit of a daze from yesterday, it was amazing! These recent years have shaken up the norm a bit, but after six Christmas’ – B and I finally got to spend it together at my parents! It’s quite different then what B is used to, so I was a little nervous that he would be bored out of his mind.
Christmas Eve was full of baking and frosting cookies, Christmas music, family, laughs, and lots of food and drinks! The family went to the early mass, came back and took photos in front of the tree, as always. We watched Home Alone, Arthur’s Perfect Christmas, and the end of It’s A Wonderful Life (we turn it on at the same time almost every year!) We then had to head to bed so Santa could come – yes the presents aren’t put out until everyone is asleep.
My brother is ALWAYS the first to wake up on Christmas morning, even as we have gotten older and his normal wake up time wasn’t until noon. This year was no exception, we had group texts going off just before 7am with a handful of Christmas emoji’s from him. We dragged ourselves out of bed and grabbed some fresh coffee and a cutout cookie. From then on the rest of the day was a blur of goodies, waffles, more Christmas tunes, laughs, facetime, games and a HUGE Cavs win!!
It was so awesome finally having B home with me for Christmas that I so dearly love! I think B had a pretty good time. *winks*
