’tis the season

We spent a nice weekend with our families. First up was Christmas Eve. We had dinner at my parent’s house (Brian’s parents also spent the evening there). Afterward, we all went to the late service at our church, where Jake performed a Christmas song on guitar. He did a great job!

Yesterday, we spent Christmas afternoon at Brian’s parents house with his extended family. In the evening, my parents, brother, and his girlfriend stopped over our house for a visit.

I got a lot of nice things such as: clothes, books, kitchen stuff, watch, cds, and pedestals for my washer and dryer that Jake and Brian worked tirelessly on in the weeks leading up to Christmas–that was a nice surprise!

The holidays are all but over, so after all of the food, drinks, and cookies, it’s time to get back on the “diet”.
