I’m sorry if my post yesterday dragged you down. It was something I needed to write…to feel…to process. It was really an amazing sight to see – thousands of people drawn together over something so sad.
But today is not about that, as all things come and go. I am trying to be happy.
Saturday was a good day. Mike woke up at around 6 AM because the pup we were watching didn’t believe in sleeping soundly in his crate. I, however, snoozed until almost 11 and proceeded to sit on the couch in my jammies all day.
We left for Christmas Eve service around 4:00.
Then we spent the night eating finger food at Mike’s mom’s and watching the kids (and Gena) play Just Dance 3 on the Wii.
We did all of the Christmas presents on Saturday – the first time I’ve ever NOT opened presents on Christmas morning.
Mike and I were planning on opening our gifts to each other on Christmas morning, but when we got home, that changed. I realized I had to get up in the morning with enough time to make the banana pudding AND get dressed for church. My desire to sleep in trumped my desire to have a traditional Christmas morning.
Mike did good. I am now officially a photographer with studio equipment! Mike got me an elaborate set of studio lighting complete with reflective umbrellas, stands, and backdrops! HOORAY! So, everyone come on over and get your portraits! Naturally I made Mike and the animals model for me.
I’m still going to need some time to play around with the setup. Needless to say, I LOVE IT!
What was your favorite gift this year?
