Saturday night we went to a Christmas party that had yet another white elephant game, but fortunately for us we ended up with much better presents this time. Batman pez dispensers and a magnetic learning set. Just what we have always wanted!
Sunday we went to my nephews 1st birthday party. It was fun seeing another cake smashing session. Poor little guy tried to shove too much in and almost choked.
Monday I diagnosed myself with rotator cuff tendinitis. I think every pain deserves to have a name. Please pray it goes away soon because it’s incredibly painful and keeps me up at night.
Last night we went to the candlelight communion service at my parents church. It was nice to hear about and focus on the whole reason we celebrate Christmas. Oh, and apparently my mom and I both love the color purple.
We came home afterwards and opened up our oh-my-gosh-i’m-so-excited Christmas presents to each other. Curlers and new unders. It was almost as exciting as our white elephant presents! I’ve been told this is what happens when you get married though, you start to think practical. We needed new cell phones so that was what we spent our money on. And you know all about how impatient we were waiting for those.
Today we celebrated Christmas with both of our families. My brother was home and it was so good to see him. Days like this make me thankful for having not only 1 but 2 amazing families. Now we leave in seven hours to make the drive to visit with the other half of family in Nashville. We’re really excited! That’s if my husband doesn’t stay up all night playing his John Madden football game for the Wii. I’m pretty sure it was his most favorite Christmas present of all.
I had a whole blog planned out in my head for the past couple of days, but for now this is all I’ve got.
