Christmas is over?! How did that happen?! Although short, it was definitely a joyous celebration.
On the morning of Christmas Eve, we let Maui and Hilo open up one of their presents before all of the Christmas festivities started. Their tails would not stop wagging when they ripped the gift wrap in to pieces.
I spent Christmas Eve with Gloria and her family. Her sister was so kind enough to have all of us over for a delicious dinner.
Early on Christmas morning, we packed the car up and drove to my parents’ place. When we got there, everyone was already up and antsy to open gifts.
All in all, it was a wonderful and joyous day. I didn’t expect anything from anyone this year because I’ve already been majorly spoiled this year, but I received some awesome gifts. My favorite gift was the time I got to spend with my mom; I think we stayed up until 3 in the morning talking about everything and nothing.
The day after Christmas, we all went bowling as a family. Even my mom decided to rent some shoes and play along; this was her first time to bowl, by the way!
…so there you have it — my weekend in a nutshell. There’s at least a couple hundred more photos, but it would take forever for me to share all of them. 🙂
