I mentioned before that I was feeling pretty under the weather while I was at home for Christmas so I only took a few pictures with my phone. It worked out though because it was a lovely holiday in its own quiet way with nothing really important to note except the feelings of love and joy I felt. Hopefully I can carry that feeling around with me for awhile to come.
My mom and I chose all the red, glass or gold ornaments and hung them on the tree while we listened to her old records. We had wine and ooh'ed and ahh'ed at each one as we took them out of the boxes, especially all the ones from when I was a little girl.
last year's, but no less cheerful. Right now I still can't get enough of Gayla Peevey's I Want a Hippopotamus For Christmas, The Souldiers You've Got Balls, The Glee Cast version of We Need A Little Christmas and The School's Let Me Be The Fairy On Your Christmas Tree. I love pop Christmas songs, they are so fun I sometimes find myself dancing around my apartment while they play.
On Christmas Eve the only picture I took (besides a quick peek of my outfit) was this one of my festive legs. It was between two parties and I curled up in my favorite chair for a little while.
Fast forwarding to Christmas morning from the same chair; After the presents had been opened and all the bacon and toast gobbled up we watched A Christmas Carol and drank hot chocolate.
