We enjoyed our first married Christmas in Austin! Last night, we had 14 friends and family members over to celebrate Christmas Eve (with BBQ, beer, and margaritas--this is Texas after all). This morning, we celebrated with my parents (my brother, Graham, is in California with his girlfriend Maisie). We woke up, called Brendan's parents and grandparents, had a nice breakfast, opened stockings, played with Lola and Zoe's stocking stuffers, called Graham, and then opened packages. We finished up with phone calls and voicemails to grandparents on both sides and Brendan's sister, Annie. Up next: playing our new board game and eating a turkey dinner later tonight.
We feel lucky beyond measure this holiday season and hope the holidays bring you and yours love and joy!
Stacy, Brendan, Lola & Zoe
