Christmas in Birmingham

This was the first Christmas my wife and I have had with just the two of us.  It was a good chance for us to start some of our own family traditions during the holiday season.  We decided not to go home because we want to save some money to travel around Europe a bit.

Christmas morning came and we opened our presents before cooking a nice breakfast.  We made some crepes, bacon, eggs, and toast.  After breakfast, we spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing and playing games.  We then made a big Christmas dinner with ham, mashed potatoes, squash, rolls, and salad.  We topped it off with pumpkin pie and ice cream.

For Boxing Day, we decided to go and see a movie.  See saw Annie, which was pretty good.  After the movie, we spent the rest of the day playing more games.  Our last couple days have been filled with playing games since Callie got me a couple games for Christmas.

The morning of New Year’s Eve, Callie and I will be flying to Paris and staying there for a few days.  We are then going to Barcelona for a few days before flying back to Birmingham.  It will be fun to end 2014 and start the new year off with a bang in France and Spain. This year has brought a lot of great learning experiences and adventures into my life.  You can read more about it on my wife’s blog.  I look forward to what 2015 brings!
