Christmas Gifts

Thought I would post some pictures of the wonderful gifts I received this Christmas. I’m so very grateful that I received what I did. I know there are people out there that are less fortunate. I only can hope that they too were able to have a nice Christmas. I hope you all had a good holiday as well!!

Here are the Disney gifts I received. I love them all. I’m excited to finally have some Disney board games to play!! The keepsake Disney pin that my inlaws gave to me was really awesome. My husband gave me a really unique Disney Cinderella Snow Globe. It’s so beautiful. Both globes light up and the large globe has a blower in it that blows the snow around. It’s really amazing! It was such a thoughtful gift. My husband and my mom gave me a ton of Disney pins for trading in the parks. I have so many I don’t know what to do with them all! Hah!!

My mom also gave me 2 Disney necklace sets. They are so cute! I can’t wait to wear them down in the parks!! She also gave me new super thick awesome comfy socks. I always have them on in the winter. She gave me a cute scarf and long socks to use to stretch and warm up in for ballet! My mom also gave a set of ornaments. They are super adorable. So perfect!! My brother got me a new ballet leotard, but left it back home in PA. Silly brother. Lol.

My BFF got me some awesome gifts too. The shirt is perfect. For those that don’t know me….I’m horribly terrified of spiders. Like hate them with a passion. She also got me a new Vera purse, a ballet ornament, one of the Disney board games pictured above, and a really pretty necklace. The saying on the necklace is the perfect way of expressing our friendship. It means so much to me.

I love every single gift I received this year. You can definitely tell how much of a Disney freak I am now!! Almost all my gifts relate to that! Hah!! It was so nice to see the family for Christmas dinner. My mom and brother were in from PA, and we went over to my inlaws house for gifts and dinner. They have a small family too. There was 11 of us total! So it was a fun time!

Christmas Tree 2012

As you all know, my husband and I went to pick out our Christmas tree yesterday!!! We go to a local place every year called Greig Tree Farm. We’ve never had a bad tree from them. This year’s pick was harder than last. Last year the first tree we saw was “the one”. This year it took a little longer. I think we looked at 5-7 trees!! We finally settled on one and then my inlaws finally picked “the one” too. I love doing this with them. Every year now we go and have brunch at this local place then go pick our trees. It’s so much fun!! We put the tree in the stand when we got home and let it open up.

Today was decorating day!! My husband is always in charge of putting the lights on the tree. Then I put the ornaments on. He gets to put a few up lol. We have certainly grown our collection since we’ve been married!! We have a beautiful Disney collection starting. Every year we have gone to Disney together, we get an ornament to remember our trip. It’s usually either a Mickey and Minnie holiday one, or one with the whole gang on it with the year written on it. I love this ornaments so much. These get placed high up on the tree so no bad little kitties or dumb doggy break them. I’ve also started getting unique glass ornaments from Macy’s every year. I have some really pretty birds, owls, round glass ones, feathery birds, etc. I love decorating the tree. I look forward to doing it all year long. And last but certainly not least, our tree is never complete without the Disney Monorail underneath it. My husband is also in charge of this. He loves this thing. We got it last year on our trip down there and have said it will go under the tree every year.

Pretty soon gifts will be piling up under the tree!! I love giving gifts (and receiving!!!), but man do I hate wrapping them!! All that work and it takes 2 seconds to rip it off. At least they look pretty!! Even the dog and kitties get gifts under the tree and their stockings!!

Even though it is now officially December, it has been raining all day here. What?!?! I actually am kind of looking forward to some snow. Last year we barely got any and it just wasn’t the same.

Well, back to the grind tomorrow!! The husband and I have officially decided to hold off on hard core dieting until after the holidays. I’m still going to eat healthy everyday.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!! 🎄🎅🎁😃
