the mr. and mrs.'s first christmas

our first christmas! yay

we were so excited to celebrate our first christmas together.
because we are up with our families this week we decided to celebrate our own "family christmas" a day early.

so we had a christmas eve eve. we gave each other pj's and we opened our stockings.

i set up our own little christmas in our room and i think it turned out really cute.
check out all those presents (i may have wrapped everything individually so as to have more presents to open, yay)

our stockings were hung with care

(the mr.'s with darth vador hanging out!gotta love my star wars fan husband)

the next morning (real christmas eve) we woke up like excited little kids.
one by one we opened our presents.

side note:
one day at work natalie was telling me how they do special things for gift buying. she gave us the greatest idea. so thanks to natalie we did something fun for our gifts to each other...

something you want
something you need
something to share and
something to read

it really made the gift buying simpler and more fun. thanks for the great idea nat! 

we had a blast opening our presents one by one.
each of us had certain presents that we were super excited to give! 

it was so fun to have our own little christmas with just our new little family. 

(excuse the just woke up pasty white face and the mr.'s i don't want to take a picture face)

i think the early christams with just the mr. and i will be a new tradition!
