Our first Christmas being married was great! Although, I have to be honest it did not really feel like Christmas. It felt like any other day, but we got to open presents. I got Orion a headlamp that he wore for most of the day.
Orion got me some kitchen stuff and a sewing machine! I am so excited to finally have a sewing machine. I feel like a real wife now. I have wanted a sewing machine for years! They are kind of expensive so I never got one. However, this year Orion got a Christmas bonus from his new job and he spent all of it on my sewing machine. What a nice guy! We also got jammies that we opened on Christmas Eve.
Other great things we got for Christmas are super sweet knifes (from Orion's parents), aprons (from Orion's brother and sister in law), movie tickets for a date night (from Orion's other brother and sister in law) and a Costco membership (from my parents). I am really excited about the Costco membership for many reasons. One their gas is usually the cheapest, two they have sweet deals on large amount of food, and three I can go whenever I want to without having to go with someone who has a membership. It was a wonderful Christmas filled with family and relaxing. Orion and I even made dinner for my parents all by ourselves, it was very yummy.
