A New Christmas Tradition

Last year was mine and Santiago's first Christmas together.  We met a few days before Christmas the previous year.  Before that, we'd both always spent the holidays with our family, but I must say, last Christmas with just the two of us, was one of the best I've ever had. 

Christmas Eve, I purchased a fully cooked turkey dinner from Mimi's Cafe.  It was quite good and a very low stress way to enjoy a full, traditional Christmas dinner. 

Then we put on our pajamas and the Charlie Brown Christmas soundtrack, and opened the gifts we had bought for each other.  (Of course, I had already received my "big" present the Sunday engagement ring!)

I don't even remember specifically what we did after that, but the rest of that evening and all day Christmas Day involved lots of relaxing in our pajamas, eating leftovers and enjoying each other's company.  It was a cozy, intimate, relaxing Christmas for two.  I can't wait to do it again this year!

We're contemplating a pregnancy, so next year may be another new Christmas experience for us.

This is relevant to the "contemplating a pregnancy" part of my story. This is why we're still contemplating. :-)
