Marital Monday: Our First Christmas-Recap

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!  Nathan and I had a wonderful time celebrating Jesus' birthday, and our first Christmas together.

Christmas Eve it was just the two of us.  We had a romantic candlelight Christmas Eve dinner.  Stuffed chicken, asparagus (can you believe Nathan actually liked asparagus??) and mashed potatoes.

The chicken was a new recipe--I'll post it tomorrow.


I got to hear Nathan read the Christmas story, and then we opened our stockings. . . 

And some great gifts, too!

Then, on Christmas Day my mom fixed up a big feast--turkey, dressing (a.k.a stuffing), mashed potatoes, green beans, broccoli slaw and lots of sweet treats.  She asked me to bring some homemade bread . . . (remember my new bread maker??  well, it works great and I was so excited to use it!)

Then we all put on our Christmas pajamas (a Martin family tradition) . . .

Heard the Christmas story, and opened gifts!

It was a wonderful time--we did a lot of resting, watched a lot of Hallmark movies, and ate wayyy too much!

I hope you and your family had a safe, healthy and happy Christmas.


  1. what a fun first Christmas! We open gifts in our pjs with my family too :)

    so glad you liked asparagus... it's one of my favorites!

  2. Sounds wonderful, but we still missed y'all at Granny's. The PJ pics are too cute!

  3. How fun!!! I have made the chicken before and we love it! Yummy!
