Our celebrations began last Friday night when Josh's mom had my family and Josh and I over for dinner. We also did "my Christmas" with them since it wasn't going to work out for me to come over on Christmas day. Along with a fabulous scarf and cardigan they got me this...
This has been on my wish list for a while and I was very excited to get it!
The day continued with a wonderful church service and then celebrating with Josh's dad, step mom, brother, sister-in-law, niece, and nephew. I then returned home to spend the last Christmas Eve at my parent's house. At home we had a little family fun photo session...we are getting pretty good at these.

I believe that Jesus is the reason for the season.
I believe in keeping family holiday traditions.
I believe in creating new traditions.
I believe that these traditions are what make Christmas special.
I believe that indulging in a few extra treats during the holidays is okay.
I believe receiving cards and letters in the mail is a lost art...I wish people would send them more often than just the holidays. I'm guilty of not doing this as well. I see a New Year's Resolution forming.
I believe in keeping these cards and storing them in a special way or place.
I believe in wrapping everything in separate boxes.
I believe in coordinating wrapping paper under the tree.
I believe in the power of prayer.
I believe that a few episodes of Friends in the afternoon can turn your day around instantly.
I believe in playing Christmas music from Thanksgiving to Christmas Day.
I believe that two weeks off of school does a teacher good.

We took another trip down to the beach, only this time in the daylight. I wanted to see this blue water they always talk about. It was a very windy, rough day, but the ocean was as pretty as always. Another family photo session took place, here are a few of the highlights.
It was another long drive home back through Alabama, Georgia, and finally back into South Carolina. It was great getting to see Brooks, do a little shopping, feel the sand in my toes (for a bit), and count our blessings. I have so much to be thankful for on my last Thanksgiving as a Savage.

* Clean my house...I would seriously pay someone serious amounts of money to do this for me. I'm noticing a lot of clutter lately. Again, We need a bigger house.
3. Catch up on the blog.
* Take care of some wedding details. I have a feeling my mom has more in store for me than I think.
* Finish up Christmas shopping (my goal is to be done by Tuesday) and wrapping.
* GET BACK TO THE GYM. This is a MUST! The wedding is less than 90 days away! Luckily, I can get there in the morning the next couple of days. I'm much more motivated in the am.
* Find some time to relax. I have to admit, I like daytime TV and little more than the average person. Terrible, I know.
But, I made it.
