Christmas!




Christmas this year had to be a little bit different. Thing felt a bit hollow as it was the first Christmas spent without my grandma here. Instead of celebrating at her house, we spent it at my aunt's! After work, I ate a variety of delicious food: dumplings, mashed potatoes, corn, etc. We began our presents with the changing of the socks, to which we each sat with our pair and my uncle read a story out loud indicating whether we pass the pair in our hands to the right or to the left.
I received my Aunt Juch's socks, which contained a scarf, lotion, and a pedicure set, all of which I am thrilled with!
Next we did the Grab Bag, which was where each of the adults in the family chose a name on Thanksgiving and bought gifts for that person for under $20. My Uncle Lar had me and he bought me two sets of Frozen PEZ and a wooden set of letters that spell out JOY with Snoopy in each of the letters. They're lovely.
Finally, we ate desserts (to which I ate one of every thing) and we did everybody else's presents! This is where I received a Bath & Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom set from my uncle, which is one of my favorite scents.

Christmas Day was such a simple and wonderful day. We ate an enormous breakfast and opened presents: I received a selfie stick, a sweater, jeans, a PedEgg, and so many bath things that my heart could explode. I absolutely adore taking baths and I've received my first bath bombs this Christmas, I cannot wait to use them. (: Presents were followed by large, delicious dinner, and pie.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and you're enjoying the holiday season. <3
