I never did truly get in the Christmas spirit, but it turned out to be a nice, quiet Christmas anyway, which was exactly what we wanted and needed. If nothing else, it was a great excuse to cook an awesome meal and share a bottle of wine. Plus, any day involving presents, the Die Hard movies (my favorite Christmas movies), and spending a whole day with hubs and few distractions can't be completely bad.
There was a minor kick to the uterus when my sister decided that she would do a gender reveal as her gift to the family (when did gender reveals become such a big deal anyway?). But thankfully I found out via text and didn't have to fake excitement over the phone. To be clear, I am really excited for her, I just would have preferred to not be reminded of her pregnancy on Christmas day.
Christmas 2015 won't go down in the record books as amazing. Nor will it go down as terrible. But hey, after the last few Christmases being really tough, I'll take it.
