christmas is much different this year for many reasons. for starters this is the first year that i am juggling spending time with 3 families. (my family, my boyfriends mother side and his father side) it is quite stressful but a blast nonetheless. yesterday my brother and i feasted at a local jewish delicatessen on lox and bagel platters and finished some last minute shopping together at the mall. then we lazed around the house until my boyfriend and his daughter came over to open gifts with us. after all the excitement of tinkerbell dress up trunks and squinkies, we ventured to his moms house to open gifts and have a delicious meal. over all it was a great day and night. i will post about today a little later. have a wonderful christmas!
