{Christmas 2014}

I can't believe Christmas is went by way too quickly! Roberto and I had a great few days here. It was very relaxing and very wonderful.

On Christmas Eve we got out once in the morning to get a few groceries and then we came back home and hopped right back in to our pajamas. We spent the rest of the day taking long naps, watching Christmas movies, making dinner and decorating cookies. It was glorious.

We ended the night with hot chocolate, White Christmas and a few card games. A pretty perfect Christmas Eve in our book.

 Rob reading the story of Christ's birth. In this moment...I was so overcome with gratefulness. So I had to get a picture:)

Please, don't mind our half lit tree. We tried...

Spending Christmas in our own apartment, just the two of us, was such a sweet thing. Holidays in the future will most likely be spent with family, kids one day, lots of events, lots "to do". So spending a Christmas with just Roberto in the comfort of our own home, with no specific agenda, was pretty darn special.

We slept in Christmas morning, then I got breakfast started and we opened stockings. We had not planned on gifts this year, but when we decided not to travel, we knew we had to do a little stocking stuffers it was! This was such a fun time, lots of thoughtful goodies and Santa even brought oranges! {A tradition from when I was little.}

Robert had Christmas Eve and Day off, so we had all the time in the world together and lots of free time to fill. After a delicious brunch, we relaxed most of the day and then got ready that night to go to the movies! We saw The Hobbit and it was really good. I am a big fan of seeing movies on Christmas and I think now Roberto is too...whoo! It really was such a wonderful and special day together!

The next day it snowed...almost a white Christmas! We decided we had to take advantage of it, so after Rob got home from practice we went out and played in the snow. It was wonderful.

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Now Rob is at an away game and I am watching a lot of Criminal Minds, seriously can not get enough of it.

I hope each of you had a very Merry Christmas! Happy Monday, friends!

Linking up with B Loved Boston ,Carly and Ashley.


  1. WOW! Looks like a lovely Christmas, indeed. I love that you had a fun Christmas Eve. White Christmas is one of my favorite movies. And we always got oranges in our stockings growing up, too!

    How awesome you got snow, even if it was a day late. Hey, Christmas is still in season until the Wise Men visit the baby, so you did have a white Christmas :)! Love your scarf!

  2. That looks like a perfect Christmas! We did have my brother and SIL over in the afternoon but other than that it was a quiet Christmas for us too and we really enjoyed it! I love the snow pictures, so pretty and you guys are too cute!
