the first Noel

Things from our first married Christmas:

It finally snowed! Big, heavy, white snowflakes that stayed right up until Christmas day. Plus more Christmas Eve night and again last night. It's winter up in here for sure. 
My parents are divorced, so Christmas has always meant tons of running around to different celebrations. Now that Ben's family is added into the mix, it's even crazier. We knew we wouldn't be home for more than 20 minutes after Christmas Eve Eve, so that night, we built a fort in the living room, got some McDoubles and fries to go, and ate up in the fort while we exchanged gifts. I think that's gonna be a thing from now on. 
One of my gifts for Ben was a Foldable Me and he loved it. It's more like the Asian version of Ben, but it works. 
A family tradition has always been a sibling sleepover on Christmas Eve. My brother skipped out this year, but my sister, Ben, and I totally kept it going.  
Christmas morning means no makeup. You're welcome for this giant picture. 
The Mom fam on Christmas morning.

Like I said, Christmas is crazy in my family. But Ben is my new family and we did things our way and it was wonderful. It's the most wonderful time of the year and I hate that it's always over so fast.

The fort looks perfect! Like something I would do as a child waiting for Santa to come.
