Let me just preface this post by saying I was the worlds biggest slacker this Christmas and took a total of 4 pictures. I started the day thinking "I need to take pictures, we don't have any recent ones," and I lazily took a couple in the morning and then placed my camera in a weird place and forgot ALL about taking photos. And to make matters worse I forgot to take it over to Cory's parents so I have none of them. But I'll make up for that on New Years. I feel awful. I think part of the problem was Cory worked Christmas day and I had a harder time with that than I thought I would. I wasn't as cheery without him as I usually am. Either way, just know I don't have very many pictures.
So, I woke up and had breakfast with Lee and Shirleen. Then I showered and went over to my parents house to open presents and have lunch. I got this picture of my mom and I:
Most of the day it didn't feel like Christmas without Cory, but I still had a great time. And when he got home it made it perfect. I love giving presents to people and watching their faces when they open them. And of course there is the true meaning of Christmas, the birth of the Savior. I felt like I had a hard time feeling that this year with the running around so today during church I really tried to think about it and it helped me feel the spirit. I'm truly blessed with so much in my life and I feel so undeserving. Whenever I get around to doing my tacky new years post I'll probably talk about wanting to change that. I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Oh, and congrats to friends and family who got engaged this week and had wonderful things happen to them!
