Triple Christmas

You wanna know one more great thing about being married?

The fact that you basically you get the triple Christmas threat: the Christmas celebration together AND the Christmas celebrations of both of your families.

It makes me love being married even more.

Tonight we're kicking off "our" Christmas celebration with a roast turkey dinner (courtesy of my boss's Christmas turkey to us, isn't that cute?) and a Christmas movie.

In the morning, since I blessedly don't have to work, we'll wake up to stockings stuffed by Santa and open up our gifts to each other.

Then it's off to a packed weekend of making chocolate truffles, having breakfast with my dad and stepmom, squabbling over the best White Elephant gifts at his extended family party, having a Jerusalem dinner with my mom and stepdad, and then, finally, CHRISTMAS!!!

Hope your holidays are joyful and spiritual, packed with family, fun, and the sweet reminders of the person who makes everything possible: our Savior.

Merry Christmas!


  1. merry christmas torrie and matt! maybe we'll run into eachother this weekend?? we'll see :) xo.

  2. Haha, you must be a better person than I am!! I love Christmas more now that I don't live near mine and my husband's families... it always felt like we were rushing from one thing to another trying to please and appease everyone else. Now that we live thousands of miles away we can enjoy our Christmas relaxed and any way we want it.

  3. p.s. Merry Christmas, enjoy your first Christmas together... I hope it is positively magic!
