Our first Christmas together as a married couple was a little bittersweet.  We were happy to be in our cozy little apartment, happy to be married, and happy to share the celebration of the birth of Jesus together.....but we definitely missed our family and friends a lot.  We decided to have a special "New England" dinner for Christmas Eve.

We had lobster, clam chowder, and  pear and walnut salad.  It was super yummy!

Christmas morning, we went with the Edmonds' family tradition of eating lots and lots of good food.  We had cinnamon buns, egg/sausage casserole, fruit salad, and bacon.  We spent a lot of time talking with family on the phone and skyping.  We put the computer up on our pass-through and skyped with the Kenneys over breakfast.  Later we caught up with Julia, Bobby, Ben, and the rest of the Cowgills in Kentucky.  It was the next best thing to being together.  We'll skype with my family on Wednesday, when they do their Christmas.  We can't wait!

This little note from Santa was in my stocking.  It was a coupon for a foot massage from my husband!  Look how creative Santa was with the packaging :)

Since we only have one car, we did our stocking shopping at the same time.  We went to Target (where else, really?), set a meeting point and time, and split up to find goodies for each other.  I had a blast (if you don't know me, my love language is most definitely gift-giving....esp. little inexpensive things that I know someone will like)...Curt doesn't find quite as much joy it it, but did a great job anyway.
 He LOVES to floss his teeth with these little flossers.  It's kind of weird.

My parents gave us a vacuum for Christmas!  It was seriously disgusting how much we needed to vacuum.  We put it to work right away!

We also ate Christmas Dinner with our friends, the Marshs and the Bourckels.  Unfotunately, I don't have any pictures :(  but we had a great time catching up with them and playing with their adorable son, Connor.  We had an awesome dinner and then played our new favorite game, "Ticket to Ride."  If you've never played it, you need to.  It's the best!

Lots of snow coming today/tonight....  Hopefully we'll have some snow pictures soon!
