life as of late

Christmas was a blur. I nice blur, don't get me wrong, but still a blur. I honestly can't believe how fast this year went.
On Christmas morning we woke up later than usual (7:30) and Mark led the family downstairs, jumping and turning his stocking upside-down to reveal an assortment of goodies.

When the stockings were done, he charged into the dining room, where our main tree is set up, and therefore, where the gifts were.
(sorry for all the poor-quality photos in this post, but I was just focusing on getting the shot, not on flash or camera settings, etc.)

It was sad, though, because this year is probably the last year where he'll associate Christmas with a fat man who rides in a sleigh delivering toys to all the children in the world.

Today, I awoke and picked up the book I got yesterday and just lied in my bed read for an hour. If you're wondering what book I got, it was the Hunger Games. LOOOVVEE! (I'm only on page two-hundred something, so don't give anything away!)

This morning after I read I headed down for breakfast, and happily treated myself to one of those^^^. I got two for Christmas :)

What did you do over Christmas weekend?

p.s. I'm currently planning something really big involving my etsy shop, so be on the lookout for a special post in the next couple of days!
