Merry Christmas Eve Eve! When I was a little girl Christmas Eve Eve was always the start of our Christmas celebrations as my entire family (both mom & dad's sides) gathered at my great aunt's house for dinner, games, & a few presents. I can even remember Santa Claus coming to visit me and all my cousins and he would always have a special little gift for each of us. As the years passed we eventually started having an ornament exchange & recently the celebration has been moved to after Christmas so we can all still gather together. Althought the gathering isn't taking place tonight, Christmas Eve Eve will always hold a special place in my heart as the official start of Christmas.
While I may not be gathering with a big group of family & friends, I still was able to open my first official Christmas present today. My parents' always buy a gift for the ladies that work here in our office. I normally get to help shop for the gifts with my mom and I also normally end up picking out my gift as well (even if I don't realize it!). For the past couple of years we have picked out a great purse to match the personalities of each lady, but this year we opted for boots. As they each opened their gifts they were thrilled with our choices & I think that most of them even fit properly! I tried on several pairs of boots when we were making our decision so I really had no idea what boot would be in my box. I ended up with this adorable little suede pair by Jessica Simpson! Love them!!!
Today is the last day of work for me & then I'm off for my 4-Day weekend!!! I doubt I'll be posting anymore so Merry Christmas to all my fantastic bloggy friends! I hope you are able to rejoice in the miracle of Jesus' birth & spend some much needed time being refreshed by the family & friends who love you so! Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!
