So some people may be thinking, "Allie you idiot it is already Christmas," And a lot of magazines and apps started the 12 days of Christmas 12 days ago, and in reality the traditional thing starts today and ends on January 6th also known as "Little Christmas" And it acknowledges when the wise men arrived to see Jesus.
Now to the first day of my 12 days of Christmas.
Today of course started yesterday when my brothers and I received our annual Christmas Eve pajamas. (Which took an impressive amount of years to catch on to what our first present was) We then all went to bed and I don't know if it was my anxiety, restless legs, excitement for christmas or an intense combination of the previously listed I could NOT sleep.
Now back to today. I was woken up by my younger brother at around 7 this morning and in my hazy fog of the early morning I waited on the steps like I have for the last 18 years of Christmas's. Every years I'm reminded how blessed I am with such an amazing family, amazing experiences, and amazing generosity from my family and I am so thankful not only for my fun things I received but for the fact Jesus was brought into this world to save not only me but everyone.
After we opened all of our presents and cleaned up a bit we had our traditional Christmas breakfast of Cinnamon roles and scrambled eggs. (Yes. every year) we then got ready and I got to use my fun little makeup things. like my new Friends Gwen Stefani, and Anastasia from beverly hills.....hehehe
we are also so blessed to be able to spend christmas with our family who lives near by and spend it with them and eat seriously good food.
Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas.... And I will write again tomorrow.
