2013 Christmas and a video

Oh hey, kids!!!
I have some catching up to do. 
But for now? 
Christmas Day. 
It was the best ever. 
B and I literally went crazy buying gifts. 
For other people, but mostly for each other. 
We both grew up in families where Christmas was a big deal. 
So basically since we're married now, we felt solely responsible for each other and the continuing of the "big Christmas" tradition. 
You know what I mean?
 we did really good. 
Like, too good. 
Like, we-need-to-not-buy-anything-for-the-next-8-months-to-practice-the-self-control-that-we-completely-lost-in-the-midst-of-Christmas-shopping, type of good. 
And also, we completely spaced the fact that both our families continue to make Christmas a big deal. 
Which resulted in a lot of presents from the family and the in-laws.
I've literally never gotten so much in my life. 
And I've felt so overly blessed by the love and giving all around me. 

And also.
I got to spend Christmas with both of my fams. 
Which I love so much. 
We opened presents just the two of us way early in the morning. 
B is all, "I've never woken up this early on Christmas morning, but Riki does, so I guess I do too now." 
He's a champ. 
Then we did stockings with my family. 
Then headed over to B's family to open presents, and play, and sleep, and eat. 
Then back to my house to open more presents. 
Then the Sanford's came over for a big turkey dinner and more fun. 
I love so much that me and B's family are so close. 
It's makes for easy holidays that are the best. 
Thanks for the best Christmas ever, family!

And of course, 
a video.  
It's mostly just a little documentary for my family of our 2013 Christmas,
but you can watch too... if you want.
And if you watch carefully, you can figure out how to make the best eggnog on planet earth (special thanks to Sky boy...the best brother-in-law and eggnog maker ever!)
Here's a piccy. 
(He's single my lady friends, and so rad).

Hope you all had the best Christmas surrounded by lots of love and warm fuzzies.
And Ry, Kay, and May were missed, like soooo much!
