Christmas Eve was spent at my uncle’s house with my entire family at our annual Christmas Eve party. As always, it was fun and we stayed very late and didn’t leave until after 1am and got home at 3am. We did gift exchanges, a raffle, played a game my cousin taught us to play on the pool table which was fun but involved lots of running around it and I ended the night playing games like Dirty Minds and Clue with my cousins. I’m pretty sure Blaine spent the entire time playing pool or that new game. He’s actually pretty good at pool and I feel bad when I play and make him lose.
Christmas morning my parents, my sister and her husband came over and we had breakfast which included delicious cinnamon roll pancakes my sister made. I don’t normally like pancakes, but they tasted just like a soft, yummy cinnamon roll and even had frosting instead of syrup. Then we opened up our overflowing stockings and presents. I am so happy with everything I got and that everyone loved the presents Blaine and I gave. Some highlights are an iHome that changes colors, a super cute black coat and Blaine surprised me with a Wii! I got a ton of other great stuff too, I love it all! Then everyone took a little nap while we waited for Blaine’s parents to come over for dinner and to hang out and exchange presents with them.
All in all it was a great Christmas and I was so happy to be able to spend so much time with family.
