Christmas 2014. If I could describe it in five words I would use these: happy, blessed, sickly, fun, and relaxing.
Wait… sickly? Yes. Poor Jimmy came home from work on Christmas Eve and wasn’t feeling good. By the 26th, we were at Med Express getting him swabbed for the flu. He got it. He’s on Tamiflu now, and we’re crossing our fingers I don’t catch it as well, buuut I’m sure it’s only a matter of time. It happens!
Sickness aside, our Christmas was amazing because we were able to spend it with our loved ones. We were with my family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, and Jimmy’s family on the 26th and 27th. My brother hosted our family as well as my sister-in-law’s family at his house and it was an evening filled with games, good food, and lots of laughter.
We are pet sitting Sticker, a nine-month-old Schnoodle (schnauzer + poodle), until Friday and Lola is absolutely loving having a buddy. Sticker still has a lot of puppy energy, so he’s keeping us on our toes!
All in all, I’d say our first Christmas as a married couple was memorable. It wasn’t exactly how we pictured it would be, but it was special in its own way and I love that. I feel so blessed that we were able to celebrate the birth of Jesus with our families and have time to reflect on all that special holiday means to us.
How was your Christmas?
