Christmas Day Snapshots

DSC_1040

Noooo Christmas is over! I hope you all had a great day with your loved ones. Christmas day is usually a very low-key, relaxing day for us and this year was no exception. We started the morning with cinnamon rolls and berries (have I blogged about cinnamon rolls enough lately??). Then presents! I love picking out gifts, especially at Christmas time! Anybody else agree that boys are extremely hard to shop for though? We lounged around, snacked, and colored in our Pj’s the rest of the day. It’s the perfect way to prepare for after Christmas shopping, am I right? : )

I also want to say a quick thanks to YOU. It’s been super fun chatting with some of you and finding lots of really cool blogs over the past few months. Looking forward to more in 2013!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! I finished wrapping presents not too long ago. When I emerged from the super secret wrapping room I looked out the window to see, SNOW! Looks like we’ll have a white Christmas after all. It’s so pretty already. I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas morning. I can’t believe it will be here in just a few short hours. I’m looking forward to a full nights rest tonight and a cozy, relaxing day tomorrow!
