Christmas 2014

Happy day after the day after Christmas!

I can't believe Christmas is already over. It comes and goes so quickly - but luckily we're still feeling pretty festive here at the Mitchell home.

So I kind of failed at the whole "documenting Christmas" thing this year, but I did get a few scenes from what we did - I was just having too much fun celebrating the holiday!

Christmas Eve was super laid back - we spent most of the day cleaning for the guests that we'd have on Christmas Day. We also packed up the treats we made into boxes and distributed them to our friends. Reibs and I felt like Santa's elves delivering all of them!

Obviously, I can't figure out simple technology, because I still don't know how to rotate my pictures. Best blogger award goes to me!

Per tradition, we ate Chinese takeout for dinner! YUMMEH.

 The rest of the evening was spent wrapping gifts and watching Elf. It wasn't exactly the most festive night, but it was still pretty much our traditional Christmas Eve. I guess we just aren't party-ers?

Christmas morning began with stockings, opening a couple of presents, and starting breakfast!

Santa came! I guess i was good this year!

Breakfast menu: Yogurt + fruit + granola, Belgian waffles, hashbrown casserole, bacon, and eggs!

 After that, we opened presents!! Photographer fail. I got a snap of this adorable necklace my sister got me!

Bae came over too.

He's so sweet!!!

Then the family came over for Christmas dinner, gift exchange, and playing games.

 (Not pictured: my uncle, aunt, cousin, and Dad, who were all present - haha. Sorry guys!).

The next day, my grandparents were still over, and we spent the day hanging around and being lazy. It was lovely!


It was quite a laid back Christmas this year, but still joyful nonetheless. I hope you all had a woooonnndderful Christmas/holidays as well!

    Looks like you had a great laid-back Christmas. I still need to watch Elf! I know, I'm an embarrassment to American culture.
