On Mondays...After Christmas

Can you believe it is the Monday after Christmas already? Counting down the last days of 2015! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a great weekend too.

This year my Christmas was a little different and I loved it. I spent Christmas Eve morning baking cookies with The Boyfriend and then headed to my parents for a PJ Christmas.

 Usually there are so many of us we don't get to sit at one table but this year we asked the extended family to join us later in the evening so we could all sit at one table together.






Opened lots of great gifts and had our gingerbread contest...which I lost for the 1st time(my mom is a cheat!!)






On Christmas day we opened gifts from Santa and then headed to the movies in our new pajamas to see Daddys Home! It was super funny and highly recommended!



After the movie I headed to celebrate with The Boyfriend's family. This is a first for me because I am pretty adamant about not splitting holidays, I don't like the stress of getting from one place to the other and people waiting for you or being disappointed on a holiday. Since after the movie is usually the time I head home it actually worked out perfectly that they have dinner on Christmas day.


I got some gifts from his family and him and clearly with that book he knows me very well!! 

He got me some great gifts this year...


On our first vacation together we took a sailboat trip in Costa Rica..how cute is that charm???
It was a great Christmas and a fantastically relaxing weekend! How was your Christmas???

Sounds like a great Christmas! I'm with you, splitting holidays can be tough, but sometimes it's also great because you get double the celebration!

I didnt realize how popular going to the movies on Christmas day is until this year.

You got some great gifts... love the ones with thought in them too.

Mom cheating? Not cool mom! :)
