Continuing with holiday week- On to Christmas! :)
We spent Christmas at Nate’s grandparent’s home in Indiana. I didn’t grow up visiting grandparents, so I find the idea completely wonderful. I always feel like I’m on some Lifetime holiday movie set when we go visit- From their dreamlike comfy living room rockers, Nate’s grandfather’s sweet comments, to his grandmother’s cookies baking in the oven! One of the best perks of marrying Nate was finally getting a dream grandma and grandpa out of the deal… Just like in the movies! :)
As I mentioned yesterday when I wrote about our 2011 holiday card, Huck received a couple hippos for Christmas. <3
Meet Girl, a real life “Tramp”- She showed up on their porch one day and now a neighbor feeds her. Nate was in love, and if I wasn’t worried about Girl eating all of our furniture and well, Huck… She probably would have come home with us!
Always gotta be the center of attention!
With Nate’s family, you literally never know what you’re getting for Christmas. Maybe it’s a box of books with a gift card at the bottom, maybe it’s an empty box with “This will have something in it soon” if your gift didn’t arrive in time. ;)
It’s tradition for Santa to bring everyone a Whitman’s chocolate candy. Nate got some Buckyballs for Christmas- Something I gave him a hard time about asking for because I thought they were pointless. Once he opened them, though, I think I played with them more than him. So addictive! :)
Nate’s sister and her adorable fella. :)
