Our Christmas.

We had a wonderful Christmas. 

We actually had four Christmases. Just like the movie... and coincidentally we watched that movie last night.
Luckily, our experiences at each house were extremely positive and unlike the experiences Vince Vaughn and Reese Witherspoon have in that movie.

It all started at 5:30 when my husband of mine woke ME up to get the day started.

We had our own Christmas at home.
Then we had our second Christmas at his grandmother's house.
Then we had our third Christmas at his parent's house.
Then we had our fourth [and final] Christmas at my parent's house.

This merging of two families gets busy.
Thankfully all the houses are within 30 minutes of each other.

Here are some shots of our day:


I decided that it's super important to take family shots and not allow anyone to skip out by being "the photographer". So we did one shot at his parent's house and one at mine.









By the end of the night, after lots of drinks, lots of food, and lots of hours awake... Sean and my dad started in on the puzzle my family had been putting together all day. 


It was truly a wonderful day.
One of those days that goes by in the blink of an eye.

Now, Sean and I are both sitting on our couch, in brand new pajamas [thanks, Santa] and we're surrounded by boxes, and bags, and tissue paper, and mounds of gifts that make us feel so, so special.

I'd say we're blessed, but I believe we're just really, really loved.

Lucky us. :)
