Our Christmas was very nice and relaxing, just what we wanted.
For Christmas Eve we went to my brothers house. We had our traditional family junk out and a movie there. It's always so fun to see my nephews. They are crazy silly, and give me a great work out every time. It was nice to see everyone, and eat some yummy stuff. Mmmmm stuff.
It was a tradition when I was little that we all got to open a present (usually PJ's) on Christmas Eve. I have tried to keep that tradition going with Aaron and my celebrations. Last year we both got some PJ's, but this year I didn't want to do that again because I think we have enough PJ's to fill up a whole drawer by themselves. Selfish PJ's, getting their own special drawer and all. Sheesh. Instead I decided I would just buy one thing that we both wanted and have Aaron open it. I bought some tickets to the Brad Paisely concert in January. Can I get a Ye-haw? A few months ago Aaron was saying how he heard that Brad Paisely is really good in concert and that he wanted to go next time he came to town. Little did he know that the next time was going to be this January. I'm pretty stoked. Even though I'm not a full on country girl, I do enjoy a lot of country music. My teenage self would probably be slapping me silly for ever saying that. I don't like the crazy, old, twangy stuff, but the majority of newer country I enjoy. I do like most of the Brad Paisely songs that I know, so I'm pretty excited.
Christmas day we just relaxed. It was very nice. Aaron woke me up around six to go open presents like an excited little school boy. I dragged time out as long as I could cause one of his gifts was hiding outside, and the sun wasn't up yet. We went and opened presents at around seven. I got him a tablet, and a miter saw. Only 2 presents, since he never wants anything cheap. Pricey little bugger. He got me a Kinect, a game for the Kinect, tickets to Wicked, and a book for my kindle fire (Mockingjay! Yay!). The Kinect is so much fun. Such a great work out too! I had sore muscles in places were I didn't even know I had muscles. It can with the Fruit Ninja game. I'm pretty much amazing at it, if I do say so myself, which I do. It's the only game that I can kick Aaron's butt in, and he hates it :) All in all it was a very calm, pleasant day.
The day after Christmas we both had off as our paid holiday. That was the day his parents did their gift exchange and lunch. It was so noisy, and chaotic with the kids, but it was a good time. I got to hold my nieces lots, which I always enjoy. So stinking cute.
So basically, all I'm trying to say here is that we had a great holiday weekend! Hope you did too!
Happy New Year!
