And it was. It, of course, being Christmas! All the shopping, wrapping, stress, anticipation and craziness was more than worth it for all the fun we’ve had in the past 8 days.
To recap, we have:
> Celebrated Christmas 7 times since last Saturday: 1) the Hub’s Dad’s side of the family, 2) the Hub’s Mom’s side of the family, 3) my immediate family (parents, siblings, etc), 4) my Dad’s side of the family, 5) just the 4 of us, 6) Christmas night hodgepodge at my aunt and uncle’s and 7) my Mom’s side of the family. And we still have one more celebration to go!
> Taken over 300 new pictures.
> Celebrated my brother’s engagement!
> Gone through 3 rolls of wrapping paper and 3 rolls of tape.
> Unwrapped all those hard-wrapped presents in under 20 minutes each time we’ve exchanged gifts.
> Eaten more food in one week then I have in months- and enjoyed every bite of it.
> Spent 2+ hours sledding.
> Driven well over 400 miles doing round trips to various family members homes.
> Gone on one date night, had one breakfast with friends from high school and had one girl’s night out with my sister and mom.
> Watched Scorch put together 7 lego sets and meltdown approximately 100 times when said lego sets fall apart when moving them around.
> Had a billion lightsaber fights since we are now the proud owners of 7 lightsabers (you can never have too many, you know).
> Watched 4 movies with the Hubs- only one of which I’d recommend (Trouble with the Curve).
> Enjoyed each and every day of this vacation as both the Hubs and I have been off since the 24th!
All in all? This has been one amazing holiday!
