Merry Christmas!

Hi guys!

  First of all, Merry Christmas to you all! I hope that you spent Christmas in a very happy and festive mood and that you had a great time, with your family, friends and/or significant other.

  So, since it was Christmas a few days ago, I thought I should post a little something to relay my wishes to you all. I also wanted to share with you how I spent Christmas Eve and Christmas Day and also show you some pictures that I took.

Christmas Eve:
I woke up and basically spent the entire morning and afternoon on my laptop watching random videos on Youtube, mostly vlogmas videos that I had missed that past week.
I spent the evening at home with my family. We watched "Home Alone" and had a wonderful dinner together.
I baked a batch of Christmas sugar cookies, the recipe of which (click here to view it) I got from Zoella's blog. I always enjoy baking sweets but the best part about this recipe was getting to decorate them however I liked. I think they turned out pretty great. The designs I made were really cute and baking them was a very fun and creative activity for me.
 After everyone else went to sleep I placed all of my presents under the Christmas tree and then made myself hot chocolate and relaxed on the sofa in a warm blanket, watching "Notting Hill" by myself.

Christmas Day:
My brother woke me up really early because he couldn't wait to open the Christmas presents. That is something we always do together as a family, so I couldn't not participate.
A while later my family and I started opening our presents. I received a few very thoughtful gifts and also some money to buy presents for myself in their stead. My family really appreciated my gifts to them and I was very satisfied with the whole gift-giving process (even though I was in quite a grumpy mood from being woken up so early).
I tried to shoot a few decent photos of Ren, my guinea pig, in a more festive-looking back-ground (a.k.a. the sofa throw that I had just given to my mom as a Christmas present). It was really hard because he was quite anxious the whole time and kept moving around a lot. I think that (for some reason) he hated being on that sofa throw because he was constantly looking for a way to get off of it, mostly by attempting to climb and jump on me.
I spent the evening with my boyfriend and his family at his house. I brought them a plate of the Christmas sugar cookies that I made and I can assume that they really liked them because they were all gone after a short while. I was very satisfied by how the evening turned out, because even though there were a few awkward moments, overall it was really fun being with my boyfriend and his family and I felt like I belonged with them. I have to thank my boyfriend for that lovely Christmas memory.
Lastly, I returned home late at night to discover that my mom had made "melomakarona" without me. I wanted to help her make them, but since it was her first time trying, I reckon she would've wanted me out of the kitchen anyway. I guess we can do it together next year.

So, yeah... that's the end of it.

  I was really excited to share my Christmas memories with you.

  I'll try to publish another little blog post tomorrow, where I'm going to show you some of the presents that I got for Christmas (most of which I got for myself with the money I was given). So, if you enjoy reading these kinds of blog posts, make sure to check it out when it goes live.

  Other than that, I just want to say, thank you so much for taking the time to read my posts. I try my best to bring you something entertaining and I really appreciate your support.

Love,
Stephanie
