Hello Christmas.

By Elleelizabeth @elleelizabethh
hello, how is everyone doing this fine wednesday morning? where has the time gone? i can say that i am finally recovered from the craziness we call christmas! :) it always seems like i need a separate vacation just to recover from the holiday. this year i was busy busy busy. the hubby and i worked feverishly until the end making christmas ornaments and fudge for all the family members. attended christmas eve mass with the in-laws and then headed to my grandma's house for a nice spread to eat :) we then ended the evening by dropping off some presents to a fellow soldier in my husband's unit that needed a little help with presents for his children this year.
hello christmas.
christmas day was a busy one. jeremy and i were up early opening our gifts.... i'm super excited to use my new sewing machine and i've already got quite a bit use out of my nook color (fyi - i'm looking for nook friends to swap books!). jeremy was very happy to find out that he will be receiving his new iPhone in a couple of days and was excited for his Buffalo Sabres jersey that i purchased. we were up and out of our house at 9am to open presents at my parents house with my brother and them. afterwards we were back to my grandma's house for a large breakfast with everyone, opened presents, then played the elephant game. i ended up with a bag of mardi gras beads and an angry birds key chain! after that was all said and done, we headed back to our house, grabbed more presents, claymore, and then went to jeremy's parents house. that was our last stop of the day, so once we arrived, i knew we could finally relax. jer's mom made a delicious meal and everyone had a great time talking and exchanging gifts. this year was extra special since it was our nephews first christmas so it was fun watching him crawling around, playing with wrapping paper, and dancing to santa claus singing!
hello christmas.
i hope everyone had a wonderful christmas! are you running around all day like the hubby and myself or do you stay put? what was your favorite moment of the day? and of course, what was your favorite gift that you received?
