Christmas!!! I hope your day was fun, filled with lots of good food and wonderful people. Mine was amazing. Every year, I realize just how lucky I am.
Christmas Eve is our big day. I spent the morning helping my mom in the kitchen. We always go to my grandpa’s house but it’s potluck style so we brought stuff. My mom made 2 desserts, roasted vegetables, and a kale salad. Then she told me to make some stuff too. Weee! I made a lentil loaf and sticky toffee pudding.
We got to my grandpa’s house around 5 and it was nice to see the rest of my family. Once dinner rolled around, I filled my plate with lentil loaf, roasted veggies, and kale salad. Then for dessert, I had some dark chocolate almonds and sticky toffee pudding.
Christmas morning was laid back…just the way I like it. We slept in till about 9 and then slowly made our way to open up the presents. Gift giving was light this year because we already got our big presents. I got my road bike and my sister got a beach cruiser. Then my parents bought each other a new car and a TV. Even though I told my parents to not get me anything, they still did.
And now my newest obsession, thanks to my parents…
After the gift giving, we headed to the kitchen for breakfast. My mom made Ellie Krieger’s whole-wheat pancakes with nutty topping.
As for the rest of the day, we spent it watching basketball and movies. One of them was Due Date. Because what else says Merry Christmas than Zac Galifianakis?
I’ll probably go to bed early tonight because I have marathon #2 tomorrow. Eeeeek!!
Anywho, I hope you all have a wonderful rest of the day 🙂
