We had a wonderful Christmas. We really enjoyed spending time with family and all great food that came along with it. On Christmas Eve we enjoyed the Feast of the Seven Fishes. We were all so busy with work that we ended up ordering most of the fish from a local fish store. Dave's brother made homeade lobster mac and cheese. That was a big hit! Also, Dave's mom made homeade scallops and tuna in fried dough. I am not much of a seafood lover but did manage to eat 5 out of the 7 fishes! That is an accomplishment compared to last year!
After our yummy dinner, we headed to midnight Mass. It was my first time attending and I have to say that it was a great experience and we will definitely do it again next year. I loved the music and it really made it feel like Christmas.
By the time we got home we crashed! We debated if we wanted to go to our church or not but decided last minute that it would be a good idea to go...so that we did! We first woke up and opened some presents.
We also enjoyed a nice breakfast and each other's company. We talked about all we were grateful for and what a great year we had..but very excited for this year because we have a good feeling about this year!
After church we went over to Dave's parents to open more presents and eat dinner. His mom sure made my day by thinking I was a size 0! HA HA! That got a good laugh. She is sweet though.
We are fortunate to live close to family. We are grateful for all they do and that we know they are always there for us. The holidays wouldn't be the same without them!
We really are excited about this year and have a lot of fun things planned. We keep talking about it and I think we jinxed ourselves because my old car started on fire last night!
Here's to 2012!
