(None of this undercuts the true meaning of Christmas for me. It doesn't overshadow Christ's birth.)
My first real gift was having my family in one place. We missed NutMeg on Christmas day, but I have this weird need to know that everyone is together in one place. I would actually give up every single present for that to happen.
Of course, there were presents. Beautiful, shiny, glorious presents.
Pretty soon, I'll take a picture of what I received from LilBro and NutMeg. They made me a "Welcome" sign to go in front of my house, but since they know me so well, they also added a removable "not" sign to put in front of the welcome.
Don't judge me. You know not every person is welcome at your house. The same is true at mine, but we all buy outdoor mats that indicate otherwise. It's a farce...and I'm bringing honesty back.
I was also blessed to receive gift cards and money--some of which I will be spending on upgrades around my house. First order of business? Picture frames in the hallway. I have to lay out the order, and then I'll get them up and get you pictures. I'll upload pictures of the pinterest project then, too.
