I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Our festivities began with Christmas baking two days before the big day and then having Christmas Eve dinner here at home. In the past we've always had plans for Christmas eve with extended family, but this year we didn't. We spent the day at home with our little family and I absolutely loved it! We baked all day long, watched every Christmas movie we had, and enjoyed the time together in our little home. It was perfect! And since it was our first Christmas Eve dinner here at home, I did my best at setting the table for dinner. I don't own any fancy china yet, so I mixed some fun patterns in with linens and my Tracey Reese plates I got from Target last year, and then used what I had around the house for a table runner (ie: a scarf) and centerpiece.
Christmas morning was spent here at home, listening to Frank Sinatra while the kids dived into their gifts and then some yummy home-made cinnamon rolls. The day was long, but magical all at the same time. So as Christmas quickly came and went, so did all the trimmings and clutter. I was happy to put it all away yesterday, even though I feel like I had just put the tree up last week. I'm not sure if it's the mess from Christmas wrapping paper and boxes from opened toys, but I needed to clean it all up and organize everything back to reality so I could breathe again. It always feels like a breath of fresh air when it's all put away, anyone else feel this way?
And now that the frenzy of Christmas is behind us, I'm thinking about the New Year and some resolutions I want to take on. I've never been one to commit to a Resolution--but it feels good to have a goal for the year and make plans to work on them. I guess I better get to thinking, I only have a few days left.
Are you ready?
