Having both of our families at our house and celebrating all together!  The laughter, chatter, and excitement being shared by two families who get along wonderfully is gift enough for me!!!

actually being treated like a normal human being…going to xmas dinner without any snarky comments about my religion from the DH’s extended family.  I was dreading xmas this year (mentally prepped myself for a huge fight) and it turned out to be way nicer than I expected.

The best was having some of FI’s family come to my family Christmas dinner. Some of them haven’t met yet. My mom passed away right after we got engaged so it was a big deal for me!

The second best was my new laptop from FI. I sooooo needed a new one!

My daughters had a portrait painted of my Mom for me from an old picture of her. She’s been gone for 6 years now and it feels like just yesterday we said goodbye to her.

 I  loved their thoughtfulness. πŸ™‚

Sapphire earrings from my FI–they aren’t huge and are just set in sterling silver, but I love that he’s been listening and trying to figure out my taste in jewelry (we picked out my e-ring together).

And a fun one–a Nook Color from my parents!  I think FI is more excited about it than me.  πŸ˜›

From a materialistic standpoint, I’m a big fan of the new iPad I’m using to post this. Otherwise, I’m quite happy to be spending Christmas with family for the first time in 5 years – my husband hadn’t met any of my family prior to our wedding, so it’s awesome to get to see him interact with my sister and her husband and kids for an entire week.

Mine is lame compared to all of yours but this year my sister got me a gift card to Bed Bath & Beyond and I bought myself servingware (platters, serving flatware, etc.) and a roasting rack. It is my way of nesting. πŸ™‚

During my “single days” when I entertained folks at my place I always just used a tablespoon as my serving spoon and a dinner plate to serve food in. Never mind the roasting rack which I had no idea how to use up until this weekend. Since the engagement, I now think of family dinners and entertaining. It helps that my fiance’ and I are also house-hunting.
