Hey everyone!! How was your Christmas?
My family celebrated Christmas on the 26th, since the day before were busy with other stuff, like Church. 🙂 Even though I wasn’t feeling too well, it was still a really good day!!
For breakfast we made Buñelos, a Mexican Christmas treat, which is a fried flour tortilla with cinnamon and sugar. So yummy!! We also had eggs and bacon. (Sorry the photo is kind of dark. It was still dark outside, so I didn’t have good lighting.)
When breakfast and chores were done, we read Luke 1 and 2 in the Bible. After that, one of our Christmas traditions is the saran wrap ball. My mom wraps up a bunch of stocking stuffer type gifts in saran wrap to make a big ball, then we take turns unwrapping it and seeing what we get. I don’t know if that makes sense, but it’s fun! 😂 😄 Then a few people had some of their own gifts to give out.
For lunch, we made a charcuterie board! We’ve never done one of those before, and it was a lot of fun to put together! And it was so pretty!!!! 😍
What I Got
Washi tape from the saran wrap ball. I didn’t get all that myself, but one of the funnest parts of the saran wrap ball is the trading that happens afterward. So I traded to get a bunch of washi tape… 😂
Some snacks and healthier candy from the saran wrap ball. Some of this was also traded for. And my brother got me the Doritos. 😄 😋
I got the gel pens in the ball, and traded my brother for the fiber tip pens. I’m excited to use these!
The notepad and hair claw are from my sisters, and the rest from the ball. I’m excited to learn the Clue card game – that should be interesting!! And those Dr. Suess book earners are adorable. 😍
And that’s what I got! My gift to my family was a one month subscription to the Adventures in Odyssey club.
That evening, for supper we had leftovers from the charcuterie board. (We continued eating those leftovers for the next couple of days, haha!!)
Then we watched a Christmas movie together. We usually try to watch one Christmas movie every year. This year we watched The Christmas Shoe. Everyone but my dad had already seen it multiple times, but we wanted to watch it with him. I really love that movie! I cry every single time. (If you don’t, do you even have a heart?!?!) 😭 💔
It was a really good Christmas!! Praise God for the gift of His Son.❤️
I’m sad it’s over, but I’m so, so, SO excited for the New Year and 2023. CAN’T WAIT!!!!! I’m so ready for it. 😂 Lol.
Tell me what you did for Christmas! Have you watched The Christmas Shoes, and if so, did you cry? Are you excited for 2023?
