a very merry christmas

I hope you all had a very merry Christmas this year! I had such a lovely Christmas, and the last thing I wanted was for it to be over. On Christmas Eve, as usual, I tried to cram too many things into one day, but it all turned out all right. I was able to sew up a skirt for the little girl I babysit, and then I was able to  alter the dress I was wearing that evening (I can't wait to show y'all! It looked pretty good for a thrift store find) and get myself all ready for the Christmas Eve service at church and make it to church just before I was supposed to sing in the choir. Then Christmas Day after church was much more relaxed. I watched It's a Wonderful Life with my family and we exchanged gifts before heading off to a big family party. It was just a happy, blessed day in general and I think I laughed harder than I had in weeks, especially during the Scrabble arguments with my uncle (he's always trying to sneak made-up words in there, and then argues that they are actual words).

Anyway, I thought I would share a look into the decorations I had up around my room this year. I didn't decorate until Monday, but I'm glad I finally put them up. 

How was your Christmas?

  1. Angel's very hard to play any type of word game with...he'll just make up words...and then look them up in the dictionary, and then sometimes his random collection of letters turns out to be a real word even though he didn't actually know that it was a word... :P
    Sounds like a fun Christmas!
