we spent our christmas eve night sleeping under our christmas tree...
which was a bit problematic for ceej since the glow of the tree kept him up a bit,
but he was a good sport and stayed the entire night with me under the twinkle lights.
oh how i loved waking up christmas morning under our tree!
we began the unwrapping as soon as we had some christmas tunes going
since we had many places to go throughout the day.
there were sweaters for both of us, books for all (this year was the year for academic books!),
a wooden spoon from germany from ceej, notebooks for thoughts, gear for mountains...
it was a lovely simple morning.
we were quickly out the door to see family. the joyous traditions began,
and continued until late at night. i slept soundly that night.
hope your christmas found you surrounded by loved ones.
will be back tomorrow with my favorite moments from 2011.
