31 Dec

Woops, It’s new years eve and I’m just now getting around to writing about Christmas. Pathetic.

Christmas is my very very favorite time of year. I love the way the stores sound with people rushing around and the Christmas music playing through the aisles. I love the smell of baked goods and freshly cut Christmas trees. There is no better time of year! I even enjoy draining my bank account purchasing gifts that I know my loved ones will appreciate. Most of all though I enjoy spending time with my family.

This year was even more special than usual. This year Scott and I celebrated our first Christmas together as a married couple. So special. We started the day early at around 6:30 because I’m still a little child who gets giddy over Christmas morning. I made breakfast which we shared at our little kitchen table with candles and holiday music playing in the background. I’m always amazed when I realize that I’m living the moments I always dreamed about. Christmas morning with my husband?!? How crazy!

After we finished our cinnamon rolls, eggs, bacon, and sausage,  we let our pups open up their puppy stockings so that they would get distracted by their toys and leave us alone as we shared our gifts. Scott spoiled me with a Kindle fire and I spoiled him with a pair of Oakley sunglasses a video game and a few other things. We then got dressed and ready for our tour around Grand Junction.

The tour started by going to my parents house and dropping off my Dad’s new lazy boy recliner. That man is SOOO spoiled! We opened gifts there then headed over to Scott’s parent’s house for Christmas dinner #1. It was so fun going over to my in-laws home for my first Christmas as a Dearborn. I still get so excited at having an extended family. We had a lovely meal that we got so full on. We then opened presents there and watched the Lakers game on tv. I love that my in-laws enjoy all sports cause there is always cheering going on no matter what’s on tv. At half time we hopped back into the car for the last stop on our tour.

Once we got back to my parent’s house my cousin Allison and her kiddos had arrived and everyone was busily running around the kitchen. I enjoy the craziness of a kitchen during the holidays. Sometimes stressful but always a fun sight. The kids were so excited to show off their new Christmas gifts. It was really precious because it was their first Christmas ever. After dinner #2 was cooked we all sat around the table and had a delicious meal and  shared memories of our favorite Christmas’, then played board games after. I love my family traditions.

This Christmas was so very special to me. Not only was this our first married Christmas but it also may be the last one we spend in Grand Junction for awhile. Who knows where the Air Force will be sending us, I certainly wouldn’t mind a warm Christmas for a change. I hope that we can get home for the holidays when we are travelling around, but sometimes it’s not possible.

I’m glad that we are already collecting memories with our combined families and I can’t wait for the future years to come.

Merry Christmas!
