All I want for Christmas is you!

Christmas was lovely this year .... it was spent with family ,and with lots of love and laughter in the air. This Christmas i was a wife... when last Christmas i was a fiance. our first Christmas as newlyweds was Fantastic! i couldn't ask for a better Christmas. my grandmother was with us ,and she even danced. Thank you God for allowing us to have my grandmother another year. She was so happy ,and oh yea ... she was even drinking Whiskey! for the first time in my life we had a countdown for Christmas it felt like new years. I Loved it! new Plata tradition... it made the holiday that much more exciting...everyone gave each other kisses ,and hugs and wished each other a merry Christmas ,and after we passed out our gifts. we were up till 230am ,and i was ready to hit the sack. the next day we did NOTHING! if the platas knows how to do one thing its to do NOTHING. we were so pooped...even Retro was pooped poor thing.

We Got the courage to shower ,and head out the door to Johnny's parents house to open presents ,and drink Caldito ( its egg soup that my mother in law does and it taste delish) we opened more present ,and then just hung out. i was super duper tired and ready to go home again. i felt exhausted ,and super lazy. the 25Th we spent it at home with our little family ,and just watched Home Alone 2 ( it isn't Christmas till i watch Home Alone) the Holiday felt complete.

Sunday night we went to my cousins house that was throwing a surprise party for her mom. Theme: 50's ... super cute party whole family was there. Johnny and i haven't seen my family since our wedding so it was a pretty sweet party. This Christmas all i wanted was to be with my family didn't want gifts just wanted to be with all of them ,and that's exactly what i got. Beautiful Christmas spent with amazing people ,and especially my Husband!

Gifts of time and love are surely the basic ingredients of a truly merry Christmas.
