On this, my last American Christmas [for a while, at least], I asked that thing be as Christmasy as possible.
Beautiful tree. Check.
Fully decorated house. Check.
Cold weather. Check-ish. It's Texas.
Christmas cookies galore. Check check.
Giant Christmas lunch. Check check check.
There was also the annual Fab Four Christmas gathering, a short-lived stint with a very difficult puzzle, and a whole lot of laying around watching Son of Anarchy.
Side note: If you've never watched this, do it NOW. I got addicted reallll fast.
Most importantly, I got to spend a lot of time just hanging out with my parents and enjoying all the happiness that comes with Christmastime.
So, I was quite pleased with my Christmas of 2013.
