we decided to spend our first christmas as a family with just the two of us. we started traditions of our own, like sugar cookie baking & decorating, reading the biblical christmas story, and watching elf. we also had my brother over for turkey dinner. chance was so spoiled & so thrilled about it, while oscar wasn't as thrilled (he did looove his cat nip though.) it was such a beautiful,calm day, and the week that the hubs got off afterward was incredible. we had so much time to start packing up the abode, which was nice, and we had a date about every night. what a dream.
