Hello everyone! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! The night before Christmas we were surprised to find it was snowing outside! We only got about half an inch, but it was definitely nice to have a white Christmas! 
Christmas morning we all headed downstairs and checked out our stockings. We all got some fun things! I got some candy, a calendar, nail polish, gloves, some scrapbooking stuff, and a few other things. After our stockings, we did presents! 
In my family, we separate out all the presents, then take turns opening them. We all like being able to see who get what and who the present is from. It took us about an hour to get through the presents and we all received some great gifts! I got a vintage clock, a jewelry stand, some gift cards, an Instax mini camera, and some other neat things. I really like giving gifts, so it is always fun to see everyone's reactions! 
We had breakfast, lounged around for a little while, then we started on dinner.

Dessert! We had nanaimo bars, pumpkin pie, and apple pie. 

After dinner we went for a walk through our neighborhood to look at Christmas lights. Once we got back home, we watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (REALLY stupid. Don't waste your time if you haven't seen it. We agreed it was one of the stupidest movies we'd ever seen.) Then we watched Home Alone before heading off to bed. Overall, we had a pretty great Christmas! Too bad we have to wait another 364 days until Christmas again!
