I Guess I'm a Little Old For Santa!

Thursday, December 26, 2013

Can I tell y'all a secret? I never really got into the Christmas spirit this year. I tried really hard. I helped decorate, I went out Christmas shopping, I wrapped all my gifts, I watched Christmas movies... it was like nothing I did helped me to get into the spirit of Christmas. But even though I didn't feel all spirited, I did have a wonderful Christmas with my family.

I loved getting to see everybody at my grandmother's house Christmas Eve. It was a lot of fun to just spend time with my family. I really tried to take the time to sit down and appreciate my grandparents this year. I know they won't be around for many more Christmases. While I was up there helping to decorate their tree earlier in the month, I showed Nanny the "Merry Mail" sign to hang her Christmas cards. She loved it so I made her one. Unfortunately I didn't get it made and to her until Christmas Eve, but I'm excited she will be able to use it next year.

Also I just have to point out that Christmas Eve didn't go quite as expected. Do you remember how some of my family members got their panties in a wad? Yes, well after making such a stink that the kids needed to get Christmas gifts, and deciding that each parent would bring their own kids gift for under the tree... none of the parents making the stink brought their kid a gift. We even did an ornament exchange and those same family members didn't participate. If we had of known they weren't going to participate in anything we would have gone ahead with our original idea and had a lot of fun. I feel like they didn't want to participate in anything because they didn't get their way of everybody buying their kids gifts. Whatever, y'all can be the Grinch if you want. I got a cute ornament and had a great time.

Christmas day was very nice as well. Up until last year Santa still visited me. I know I'm a little old for Santa, but I really liked getting those gifts. It somehow just made Christmas. But this year everything was wrapped under the tree. I got a ton of amazing gifts (including everything on my Christmas list!). I'm pretty excited about everything. I'm sure I'll write posts about stuff that I got... eventually.

I hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas as well! I am pretty excited to get back in the swing of blogging and reading blogs. Hope the rest of y'alls Holidays are exquisite!
