i realize Christmas is not about material things etc. etc. but i have to say... i was pretty spoiled this year. :) and because i want to remember it all, here goes the "materialistic" post.
Christmas morning started out perfect with the gift from my parents (coffee in the morning just got easier) paired with the locally made blueberry jam from my brother and his girlfriend.
Santa Husband even remembered our dog babies...
i can't even tell you how much i love my husband.
some of the things i got this year :
since i have a jersey with my maiden name, my husband surprised me with a cowboys jersey (from their vintage collection) with my "updated" last name. i love it!
(speaking of sports, it was nice to have Dirk Nowitzki back on my telly)
out of all the nice things his parents sent (including the softest flannel sheets), i had to show off these shirts they got us that made me giggle-- a joke on my texas.
i also got wonderful gifts from dear blog friends (thank-you beautiful alyssa, athanasia, kary, april, and gracie!)
along with my cowboys jersey and record player... my darling husband also threw in one of these. i am a blessed girl, indeed.
but the sweetest and best christmas gift was opening a framed photo of my little niece/nephew to-be, my brother Marco's first baby.
what was the best thing you got this year?
ps. what did we ever do before skype? since we didn't get to go home for the holidays, i was thankful to get to video chat with both of our parents and my seesters.
