Christmas things

Merry belated Christmas to everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful and relaxing day :)

Christmas at my house this year was pretty lowkey since most of us were sick, so I'll just give you the highlights ;)

Our family friends from NC (pictured above with my mom on the left) always come to stay with us on Christmas Eve since they used to live up here and all of their family lives nearby. Once all the kiddos were upstairs we played Cards Against Humanity, which is super fun :) It's pretty awkward to play with parents though, so be forewarned haha.

French toast and hashbrown casseroles. AKA my favorite meal ever. My mom makes this every year on Christmas morning (and only then), so family comes over and we all do a huge breakfast after opening gifts :)

As the afternoon went on, I started feeling sick too, so Bryan came over and spent the evening in bed with me while watching Friends. Good thing I got seasons 4-6 to keep us entertained ;) (He thinks my obsession with the show is ridiculous haha).

I'm feeling a little better today, so if the crowds aren't too bad I might venture out and do some shopping with my mom later :)

What's your favorite Christmas tradition?

What's your favorite thing you got this year?
I got this really cute running shell! It's just a bit too tight to wear on top of winter clothes so I'm going to see if I can swap it out for a bigger size :)


  1. I'm sorry you got sick :( That's awful!
    My favorite Christmas tradition is reading the Christmas story, opening presents with the family (I love seeing what others open!) and eating sticky buns for breakfast :)
    My favorite thing that I got this year was a new cello, but I'm also in love with a Harry Potter book written in French <3

    1. Aw, that sounds like so much fun :) The French Harry Potter book sounds so cool!
