This year was officially the strangest Christmas Break that I have ever had, mostly because I was the only kid around my house for most of the time. I was an only child for most of break because my sister and her husband didn’t get to our house until the 27th…so we postponed all of our Christmas traditions…like I mentioned in a previous blog. Not going to lie…I threw myself a pretty big pity party for a few days. Eventually…my sister and brother-in-law got here…and everything was just as it should be. We opened gifts, made our usual Christmas dinner, had my Mom’s family over, and just had an all around great time.
Since this year was already turning out to be completely different than other years…I wondered how many things would change. Don’t worry though… my family pulled through and we had a traditional family Christmas. There are several things that go into our traditional family Christmas…
- Watching Christmas Vacation
- Renting tons of other movies
- Sleeping…a lot
- Laying on the couch
- Eating awesome food (mostly meat)
Also…one of the biggest successes over Christmas Break was that I officially got my little cousins hooked on Vera Bradley. Sorry family…you’ll really hate me in about 5-10 years…but aren’t they just precious??!!
