Late last night I was snuggling into bed when Matt came in and said he had to give me my present then. So I got out of bed and tip-toed into the living room to find…
A homemade Ball jar table lamp!!
A bit hard to see in the dark… but it’s gorgeous and so me!
He made it himself out of metal pipes (just like he did my clothing rack from our rental house)
I’ll post some more photos today!
We slept in this morning and then enjoyed Great Harvest pancakes and presents!
3 flavors: pecan, banana and chia, topped with Cookie Butter and Cocoa-Nut
Chestnut – Christmas appropriate!
Dancer + Prancer
During breakfast we opened gifts that our family sent – got lots of fun stuff including socks + Nuttzo and an Organic Butcher gift certificate from Karen (who is in Alabama with Andrew and her family), some nice body wash + lotions, and quite a few checks that made us very happy!
This is my first Christmas ever without my family and we miss them, but luckily we were able to get some live action via Skype last night!
I was worried it wouldn’t feel like Christmas without my parents’ big old house, but I think we’ve done a good job creating our own fun. And tonight we’re having friends over for a fancy dinner!
There won’t be too much relaxing today because we have a LOT of packing to do! We leave on our vacation tomorrow!
