Handsome and I – First Christmas

Okay so Handsome and I have had a few Christmases together before this one, but since we were married I wanted to go as over the top as possible.

Why?

Well you see I may have been the child that cried when my family tradition went from a fresh tree to a plastic one. I may have been the same child who cried when the tradition of opening Christmas morning was switched to Christmas eve. I also may have been the child who cried.. a lot.

No really I did.

So I thought, why not start with as many Christmas traditions as humanly possible.

That’s what we did.

We woke up early and opened presents.

We also had stockings stuffed to the brim!

Then when we were done with all of our goodies we had breakfast. Okay truthfully I wanted to put of the gift excitement so we took a timeout for breakfast.

French toast!

After all the food we could eat we snuggled and watched two Christmas classics. Frosty the snowman and Santa Clause is coming to town. Then we went for a Christmas drive to look at all the lights.

It was great.

Best Christmas ever.
