Our First [Married] Christmas

We had an awesome Christmas and we hope you did too. Last year we were engaged and Anthony came over early to my parents to be there to open presents so this Christmas wasn't too much different than last time. We woke up at 8 and opened presents and it was done and over in about 20 minutes with only the two of us to open presents. I always had a hard time sleeping when I was a kid the night before Christmas, and still have trouble to this day. Now though the excitment is more about Anthony and my family's reaction to the gifts I give them than about the gifts I get.

Here is us on Christmas:

We decided to spend a little money on each other this year. Last year we were on a tight budget with the wedding and Anthony starting a new job. Since this may be the only Christmas we will ever be able to spoil each other we decided to take advantage of that. Anthony sure did spoil me. I was really suprised because I didn't think I would be getting the Kindle. Everything aside from the boots was picked out by Anthony.

I am hoping that this Christmas is the last Christmas I will spend in retail. This is my fourth year and I just don't know if I can do it again. It was really stressful especially with finals being around the same time. I didn't finish decorating. I didn't finish my wreath. In fact I still have the fall one on my door. It doesn't really matter though because the decorations aren't what Christmas is about anyways.

Now I just have to prepare for next semester!

  1. I'm so glad you guys have each other. It makes Christmas so much more special with a spouse. At least, that's what I think. We loved your card. Thanks for including us!
