This year Chris and I had our first married Christmas in Virginia with his family. Unfortunately the whole family couldn't make it, but we still had a blast. We will be back there this Summer and ready to snuggle with the twins again!
Before we left Utah we decided to have our own Christmas together at our apartment. We woke up early on a Sunday morning and had a little gift exchange.
We wore holiday onesies,
ate bowls and bowls and bowls of sugar cereal,
and snuggled in our decorated apartment.
It was weird to be away from my family for the first time, but I am
excited to build some new traditions for our own family in the future.
Some traditions may include decorating a Sprite bottle. We did this to substitute for our tree. We ended up buying a 3 ft tree from target, but it was still cute by our nativity set.
Speaking of traditions, my family still decorates our coat rack on Christmas Eve in memory of this experience. You can create traditions whenever you want.
