Since we were not able to head home for Christmas, Richard and I were able to spend a lot of time together in the last few days. Which makes me so happy.
We started out our Christmas break on Monday night by watching the 6th and 7th Harry Potter movie. We had to finish from our weekend marathon.
We woke up on Christmas Eve morning and finished watching the last Harry Potter movie. 8 movies over a 6 day period was crazy. We then made my grandma's caramel roll recipe which is always delicious.
We then decided to clean and organize our house. Originally we were going to make cookies on Christmas eve, but we did that last weekend instead so that we could share them with my coworkers. So we decided to do the cleaning and organizing on Christmas Eve instead. We got rid of 6 boxes/bags of stuff which is really good for us. We are on operation move-as-little-stuff-as-possible if/when the time comes.
After all of that we made our Christmas Eve dinner. Where Richard ate steak and I ate fettuccine alfredo. We both picked out our meals separately because, let's face it, we do not like the same meals.
After dinner we watched Elf which is a Christmas tradition of ours. Love that movie.
Then on Christmas morning we Face Timed both of our families so that we could open presents together. My nephew was so cute. He kept coming over to the iPad and waving at me and saying hi. Such a sweetie.
Richard and I then decided to do something different for Christmas and go see a movie at the movie theater. We rarely go to the theater and I used to go to movies on Christmas when I was a teenager so we thought it would be fun. We went to see The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. It was a cute movie, but it was not my favorite.
We then just hung out together, made dinner and then watched the movie The Notebook. Apparently with all this time on our hands we watch a lot of movies. Oh well, we need something to fill our day.
So our days were pretty relaxed, but we still really enjoyed the time together just the two of us. I hope everybody else had an amazing Christmas!
