My family and I are back in Jersey after spending a few days in Central Pennsylvania to visit family. I had a very awesome Christmas. How was yours?
I thought I’d post a quick Christmas Festivity Recap as a way to procrastinate unpacking. I’ve done a lot during this past week, so I have a lot to tell you guys!
I’ll rewind to last Friday, December 21st. Megan, Dave, and Charlie came over for dinner. We then headed to Pitman, NJ, to see some Christmas lights. I had read that they have a pretty amazing display, and we were not disappointed. They had a free trolley ride around town and two walk through displays. The smaller one was in the park, and the larger one was put together by a bunch of private residents. It was definitely worth the trip!
My mom got into town on Saturday morning, and we had a pretty low-key day. We did nothing exciting, but I needed a day like that!
Megan had a Cookie and Cocoa Party on Sunday afternoon. I ate way too many cookies, drank way too much coffee, and had a fabulous time.
Daniel and I had a date night that evening, thanks to Megan and Dave for a gift card and Mom for watching Trinity. We needed it. I don’t remember the last time we had a nice time out together without the kiddo… Well, I guess it was just the other week for Daniel’s Company Christmas Party! Oops. It was a long time before that.
Monday was Christmas Eve, and we had dinner at my house. If you haven’t noticed, Megan, Dave, and Charlie are our new family. So, of course they were here. We exchanged mostly handmade presents, ate some amazing food, drank holiday beer, and played an epic round of Monopoly. Fun times were (hopefully) had by all!
Trinity, Daniel, and I put on our new Christmas Pajamas and went to bed not too long after everyone left.
Christmas Day was wonderful. Trinity made me breakfast in bed, which consisted of Dulce De Leche Cheerios and Nutella toast. We opened presents, hung out, and were lazy for a while.
We eventually packed and started the trip to Montoursville, Pa. The drive was not very eventful, which is always a good thing.
We had a lot of plans, but most of them were either cut short or cancelled due to snow. We did manage to visit with Wendy, John, and their kids, my brother and sister-in-law, my Aunt Bonnie, Daniel’s sister and her kids, and my mom. It was mostly friends we didn’t get to see. Hopefully next time.
We left early on Saturday because it was snowing again. The trip back to Jersey took forever, but we made it safely! Luckily, it switched to rain right when we hit Philly. There’s no snow to be seen here!
Now I’m attempting to get my house back in order and my life back on track. We have epic New Years plans with Megan and Dave, which consists of an Around The World night (food and drink from different countries) and the Mummer’s Parade in the morning.. AA and Glenn #2 will be in town this coming week as well. So, hopefully I’ll be spending some time with them! I’ve missed Amanda so much!!
So, that’s what I’ve been doing for the past week. Hopefully you didn’t miss me too much! I know I’ve missed all of you guys.
Oh! Oh! I’d also like to thank Wayne from The Bottom of a Bottle for nominating me for The Wonderful Team Member Readership Award. Thanks, Wayne!
Now I will stop typing. This post is long enough!
