Christmas happened

Christmas seemed mellow this year.

Perhaps it was because I wasn’t truckin’ it across state lines to make it to multiple Christmases.

For the first time ever in my life, I slept in on Christmas morning. How crazy is that? I think Berkley came in and woke me up around 9:30. So different from the 5:30 a.m. wake up call if I was at my Dad’s.

Mom and I had our traditional Christmas breakfast of sausage and sauerkraut, yummy I know, and picked out what movie we were going to see so we knew how much time we had for presents. We decided to see Little Fockers around 2:00 p.m. Plenty of time to relax and open presents and get ready to go out.

Santa definitely visited my house.

Presents everywhere!

Berkley, if you couldn’t tell, tends to be attached to my hip when I’m home. Plus, she loves posing for pictures, haha.

The highlight, by far, was my new Nikon D3000. My Pop Pop was a photography professor, and I’ve dabbled in it half-heartedly for a while. Once I moved to Erie, and found a new appreciation for nature, as well as a new desire to document my journeys, it was time for me to take the next step to making Pop proud.

I will post my first pictures soon. I am so very excited.

The few days after Christmas have been filled with shopping trips and movie watching. So. Great.

Today though, Mom and I went duckpin bowling. We sure love bowling.

Mom has incredible form.

And people wonder where I get my personality. IMG_0638

Tomorrow is Christmas with Padre and Madrastra.
