Our first Christmas as “married people” was awesome! Though it wasn’t the same opening presents early on Christmas morning with our sisters and brothers, it was our own. Christmas Eve we went to LifeChurch’s Christmas Eve service with some of our family. After before going to our Aunt & Uncles, we made our traditional stop at McDonalds. We only eat appetizers, so we usually get in a quick meal first. We open presents with our crazy little cousins and got to spend time with all the sisters and brother-in-laws/fiances. Here are some photos from the night.
Christmas morning, we opened our own presents, played a little of the original Mario for the Wii, that Drew got from Vanessa. Then headed over to Vanessa’s parents house where the rest of our family comes over and we made Mongolian Beef. It was so yummy! We have lots of fun just relaxing, playing with the baby and whatnot.
When we got home from spending the day with our family, our cat was the most vegg-ed out cat ever, it looks like he enjoyed the peace and quiet. Drew got me a deep fryer, and now I have to find some new recipes (if you have some, send them to me!) We celebrated with Drew’s family earlier because some of them were heading to Florida for the weekend. All in all, a great first Christmas together as “married people.”
