Christmas 2009

By Cedar | December 29, 2009

I hope everyone who celebrates had a very happy Christmas. I had hoped on updating on Sunday, but have been rather sick for the past few days. I have felt like such a blob, sitting on the couch for the past two and a half days watching movies and TV. I really hope I can get up tomorrow and work on some housework. Our apartment is looking quite frightful.

Russ and I had a wonderful Christmas. We got to spend a lot of time with both of our families, we ate entirely too much food, cooked lots of pies, made peanut brittle, drank mimosas, and just tried to make the most of the holiday that my family members seem to dread. I honestly can’t think of a better Christmas though. It was relaxing, fun, and what I hope all other Christmases in my future are like.

I got spoiled beyond belief. My dad gave me a new camera as a gift, so pictures will now resume on the blog!

My mother in law also went overboard in amazing gifts. She found some incredible vintage hats and several amazingly beautiful hat pins for me. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel well enough to get fully made up and snap some outfit photos wearing one of the hats.

On top of those amazing gifts my mother in law also got me this huge lot of the Vernonware Raffia dishes I was pining over in an earlier post. She kept asking what I wanted for Christmas– I guess Russ must have told her I was starting to collect this set.

How was your Christmas? I would love to hear all about the goodies everyone else received!

    DH gave me this fantastic USB-record player, I’m in the process of recording my favourite vintage vinyl discs to enable me to burn them on CDs so I can hear them in my cars and my Summer cottage:

    Son gave me my favourite Christmas movie, The Polar Express. :)

    [...] obsessing over dishes (again) online. Up until Christmas time last year when I got started on my Raffia collection (which is now two pieces away from being complete to me) I have always had ugly and boring Ikea [...]
