this Christmas

The Christmas season this year was slightly hectic. But also, it was filled with memories. Some memories were captured with my camera, but many were captured with my heart. They couldn't have been photographed.
I made delicious sugar cookies and incredible paper snowflakes. I inhaled the chilly air and let snow fall in my hair. I put Christmas lights and ornaments on our tree. Received anonymous gifts on our doorstep. Quoted Buddy the Elf quite frequently. I watched holiday movies with my family. And I ate WAY too many chocolates. I sent a letter that I had already written but procrastinated sending in the mail. I knitted a hat that I gave as a present. Witnessed an elf grilling hamburgers. (yes, I really did) I got a long awaited journal. I devoured one too many cookies and treats but never regretted it. Stayed up until 4 AM two nights in a row. Ding-dong-ditched someone's house and left a baggie of scrumptious goods. I took as many pictures as I could, but not as many as I should have. I gazed at Christmas lights in the dark.
Christmas is beautiful. And I'm thankful for the birth of Jesus Christ.

How was your Christmas, darlings?

  1. I ate too many pastries and watched way too many Christmas movies. It was crazy with my family who are known for their corny jokes and passionate conversation debates, but all the same it was great. A bunch of dysfunctional people coming together and celebrating the holiday together. :)

  2. This Christmas I practically breathed chocolate and eggnog and little strawberry candies; my family and I played three games of Clue in two afternoons/evenings and watched Christmas specials and consumed waay too many pastries to be even remotely healthy. And this morning we had the first big snow and we shoveled the driveway and it's good. :3

  3. Sounds like you had a sweet Christmas :) I looove all your pictures. It sounds/looks like a divine time. I had a similar experience. Lots of family and warm goodness, but also a good mixture of stressful chaos.

  4. What a lovely post! You must have had a wonderful Christmas!

    Also, I would like to thank you very much for stopping by at my blog! :) It's a coincidence how I stumbled upon yours quite a while ago, liked it, posted a comment on it, and forgot it's name [which annoyed me quite a lot]. But I've found you again after reading the two sweet comments you left me - and this time I made sure I followed you before anything happened!

    Keep in touch!
