    Great pic re-cap of the holiday and your awesome gifts and family!
    I didn’t do much (any) celebrating since I was in Cali alone… but I’ll be hibernating at my mom’s house soon and I can’t wait to see everyone… I’m not super excited about the snow/cold, but I definitely missed a little of the Christmas spirit this year (I was disoriented due to the weather I think—it didn’t feel much like christmas)!
