Belated Merry Christmas, everyone! And happy holidays! <3 So here we are, sharing the stuff we did this Christmas plus photos of our bookhauls!
So this year, we had another family get together for Christmas. My family from the father’s side all came to our place and we played a game (Beat the Parents–has anyone else played that?) and then ate tons of food. I still feel quite bloated, really. I got a few memorable gifts, so thanks to everyone who gifted! My friends and I also had a no-book policy this year (we wanted to give unique gifts), so this haul’s mostly from my parents and grandma. More are coming this January when I have my exchange gift celebration with cousins (I’ll post those on Instagram)! Here’s the haul so far:
We didn’t really do anything special as a whole family this Christmas, since each family is going somewhere different. So we basically just had a really, really chaotic dinner! ;)
For this Christmas I was fortunate enough to spend a ton of time with my family. My aunt, uncle and cousin and grandparents traveled, where we all met up at my house for a fabulous Christmas dinner and exchanged presents.
I hope you all received a ton of wonderful books and that you all had a wonderful Christmas spent with your families and loved ones.
The thing about your birthday being celebrated near Christmas is that you get joint gifts. It’s awful LOL. Anyway, I still thank my parents for giving me the money to buy some of the books and also some people for giving me some of them.
We always celebrate our Christmas having a mini family reunion. I get to see some of my aunts and uncles on my father’s side. Anyway, we had games and did some fun stuff and it was so much fun. And of course, after all the craziness, I just went away and read something. I reread Clockwork Princess and it’s still so beautiful. I cried again. Seriously it’s one of my favorite series of all time.
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!
So how do you guys spend Christmas? Any noteworthy books in your hauls?
Aimee loves being a little bookworm (okay–she doesn’t like being little). She also loves chocolates and sweets but is freaked out by the thought of possibly getting diabetes.
