I can't believe that Christmas has already come and gone...time flies waaaay too fast! Christmas was wonderful this year and again, I feel overly blessed. We went to an AWESOME Christmas Eve church service at RiverPointe on Wednesday - and I really do mean awesome! They have the best music and we had a really fun time. My family does things a little differently when it comes to opening presents. On Christmas Eve we open our stockings - which reminds me that every year we get scratch off lottery tickets and every year I convince myself that I am going to win big. Soooo...2008 was not my year, maybe 2009! Anyway, I did end up winning $1 and Drew won $4 but the most hilarious thing ever is that my mom's best friend's son (who is 5 years old) won $2000! We couldn't get over it...they decided to take a family trip with his winnings. After our stockings were open, Drew and I headed back to our apartment to gear up for Christmas Day. I can't believe that we have already spent two Christmases (not sure if that is really a word) as husband and wife - Drew is by far my greatest gift ever and I have never felt more lucky than to have him in my life.
On Christmas morning, Drew and I opened our gifts to each other. Out of all he beautiful things he gave me, my favorite has to be my fabulous martini set! I love martini's of all flavors and of all the kitchen things I have already accumulated, I was missing martini glasses. Kitchen completed! I have two favorites that you really should try if you like fruity drinks...both are pretty tangy but I can't get enough of them. Oh and you have to like vodka! ;)
Then we headed over to my mom's house for breakfast, mimosas and more gift exchanging...I LOVE more than anything to watch people open gifts - they always look so happy.
So now it is off to Dallas for Christmas with Drew's family. We are really looking forward to seeing everyone and I know that it will be tons of fun. I am sure there will be more delicious food which really is the LAST thing I need but hey, my goal is to gain as much weight as possible before New Year's so that when I start getting back in shape it will be far more noticable! Not really...but it sure is a good excuse! ;)
I hope all of you had the most fabulous Christmas and I wish you a wonderful start to 2009!
