So this is Christmas 2012 edition
Our Christmas was low key and quiet. I finished all of my Christmas baking on Christmas Eve (cookies, muffins, a delicious breakfast casserole...). We woke up early to open presents and eat a nice breakfast. Gabe threw his back out the day before and so he spent most of his day either laying on the couch or laying on the floor putting together a Christmas present. Christmas calls were made, our traditional Chinese food dinner was consumed and we spent the rest of the night watching Christmas movies and discussing the true meaning of the season. It was a simple and quiet day, and while we missed our extended family there is something about establishing your own traditions that cannot be replaced.
Merry Christmas to you! I hope it was a pleasant and spiritual experience for all!
