Christmas 2013

Happy Friday everyone!

It's so nice to be on break from work and have the ability to catch up on a few things, like actually making a post on this here blog. It's part of my New Year's Resolution to be better at updating and keeping this blog going, so we will see how that goes for me.

I do hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Our Christmas expanded about three days, and it was a lot of fun. On the 23rd, Michael and I decided to celebrate our Christmas, as we live an hour away from our families and wouldn't have a lot of time otherwise. In the morning, we went to ICE at the Gaylord Texan. This year's theme was the Nutcracker, and it was a lot of fun to go through and see the ice sculptures. It was sooo cold though, so it was good that it only took us about thirty minutes total to get through the whole thing.

Once we got back to town, we had lunch out and then went home and decided to go ahead and open our presents. We wanted Sirius to be able to have some time to play with his new toys and have some treats since we would not be home for a couple of days. It was a lot of fun, and Michael did a wonderful job shopping for me this year. I think he was happy with his gifts as well. :]

Christmas Eve was all about spending the day with my family. We met at my parents' house, and then we went off to see Anchorman 2 (since the first Anchorman is a pretty big hit in our family). Then we returned to their house, did a lot of eating, and spent a lot of time sitting around and playing some games. At night fall we all opened our awesome gifts (my parents are amazing at Christmas), had a wonderful dinner, did a white elephant gift exchange, and enjoyed watching a Christmas Story. It was a wonderful day, and it seemed to go by way too fast.

Christmas day was spent with Michael's family. We picked up his grandpa, and then headed over to his Aunt and Uncle's house for a nice Christmas lunch and to spend some time together. We stayed there most of the weekend, and then returned to his mom's house in order to finish opening gifts as a family. It was a nice day as well. Sirius certainly had fun playing with his other dog friends!

I hope that everyone else had a wonderful Christmas season! I can't believe we are nearing the end of 2013. It feels like it has flown by! Have a wonderful Friday!
