We really had a wonderful Christmas this year with a lots of firsts too! It was our first Christmas in our new house, it was the first time I have ever been pregnant during Christmas (nothing like being around lots of food that all smells bad! AHHH) , it was the first time we went to Austin to celebrate the holidays, and it was the first time Brent surprised me with my gift (I normally know what he gets me because he lets it slip!)
We started off in Austin the weekend before to celebrate Christmas with Brent’s dads side of the family. We had a great time! It was nice spending time with everyone. There was wonderful food and we did our White Elephant gift exchange! I got a Rock Torch (pictures to come soon) and Brent got a cookbook with an emergen blender. I have wanted one of those for a long time, so I was very excited about that!
Then on Christmas Eve, Brent and I went to church in the afternoon. It was so cute, it was the family service and the kid had a play about the birth of Jesus. It was sweet and it made me look forward to all the years to come with our little one. Then that evening we went to his Aunt’s house to celebrate with his mom’s side of the family.
On Christmas Day, Brent and I woke up to two crappy things. 1) Actual crap, one of our doggies got sick and 2) we had no power! Both sucked but we still made the best of it. Brent and I opened gifts with our doggies. Brent got a card to expand his GPS area for his boat, some shirts, The Dark Knight Rises, Ted and a Keurig K-cup Holder. He was very excited about his K-cup holder! HA I got Pitch Perfect (Aca-amaizing, if you havent seen it, you must watch it!), Apple Gift Card, and an iPad Mini!! I was very surprised! I wasn’t expecting that and it was a wonderful surprise!
Later that day when our power finally came back on, Brent’s mom, step-dad, and sisters came over for Christmas dinner. We had a wonderful steak dinner and exchanged gifts. It was a wonderful Christmas and I can’t believe this will be the last year with just the two of us. Next year we will have a baby to spoil! I am already looking forward to out first Christmas as parents!!
Here are a few snap shots from our Christmas, we hope you had a wonderful Christmas as well!!
Until next time!
