Christmas Day was busy busy busy! Again, part event, part outfit post, part gifts :)
We started by waking up, having breakfast, and opening our own family gifts. Mom got us up at 7:45 because she misread the clock as 9:45 O_o But besides that it was a nice morning.
By 1 pm we were at my dad's sister's house with his whole side of the family--the big side! So many aunts and uncles and cousins (well, seven not counting me and my brother), and lots of good Italian food and desert. Gifts are given but are always nearly forgotten in the wake of food, Christmas crackers, and the jam sessions that occur.
|All the ladies who got crowns in their crackers, self-decorated with confetti and tape :)|

From my family, I received a Topshop beanie (made in Britain :D), a travel mug, touchscreen gloves, some candy and toiletries (all pictured below), as well as a drying rack and CS6 Photoshop, Illustrator, and Indesign (which I still have to download!).
At Christmas, I received a mood ring, a Christmas 2013 Pandora charm, homemade fudge, and some money. (With such a big family, we only do either tiny gifts for everyone [i.e. one aunt gave all the girls mood rings] or bigger gifts for godparents/godchildren).
