So on Christmas as I said in a previous post, we woke up at 8:30 and did the presents thing at my house. This past Christmas was all about Bryan Lee since he was only less 11 days old last Christmas. Then we ate our typical Christmas day breakfast (which consists of: candy, canday, and candie). We then got ready in our nice Christmas day outfits (I got Minnie Mouse footie pj's for my Christmas Eve present [we ALWAYS get to open one present on Christmas Eve. Its ALWAYS pj's.] and I did not want to get out of those to get dressed in regular clothes.) We then went to my grandparents. Please enjoy the following picture of myself in my Pjs.
When everyone was there we opened presents. This was the first year I actually truly had enough money to get everyone what I think they deserved and my favorite part of Christmas this year was for sure seeing people's faces when they opened their presents. This year everyone complained about how hard it was to shop for me because I couldn't really think of anything I wanted. But I got everything that I could have asked for and more. It was fantastic to get not one thing I knew of. After I left my grandparents I went home to pack my bags for Alabama. Aaron then came and picked me up and we were off to his sister's house which is about an hour away. I had known since July that Alyssa (Aaron's sister) would be getting engaged on Christmas morning and so I finally got to talk to her about her new engagement. And I am so so so excited to help her with her wedding. She has asked me to do her hair and makeup which I am so excited to do for her! :)
The next morning at about 5:30 a.m. we were off. (We as in Aaron, his older brother and sister and I.) Making the nine hour trip from South Carolina to Alabama!!! We got here about 2:00 (3:00 our time! We gained an hour! WOOO!). We really didn't do much that day. I feel the need to note that we did lounge around and his parents friend's came over. Oh and we opened Christmas presents too!!
The next day we all got showered and ready and went kinda shopping in this shopping center. I got to experience a "World Market" for the first time and it is so neat! I also want to mention to you guys that if you have an Old Navy near you they are having an INCREDIBLE sale right now. I got a polka dot cardigan, a dark grey one, and a pair of socks for Sixteen dollars! Here is a picture of the polka dot one I got! (There is noway for me upload pictures here in Alabama so settle for this one of the website please! )
|The polka dots are sparkly!!!|
I hope you guys have a great rest of the night and I will post again soon! Again I apologize for the long post! But I hope you enjoy it!!
