Did anyone just have a perfect day?

Other than my 18 year old not being with us, our day was perfect. All of our other kids were there. The ladies that I do foster care for got to spend the morning with their families and made it home in time before we unwrapped gifts. There was such a positive vibe from everyone and a lot of excitement and happiness.

We didn't go overboard on Christmas this year. We actually did a lot less than our norm as far as gifts. There wasn't one complaint. We got our thank yous. I loved my gifts and hubby loved his. There was lots of thoughtfulness and fun.

Our day could not have been better. No complaints from me at all.

I feel very lucky to have my family.

I didn't, but I'm grateful that I got to spend time with my fiancé and I think I'm pregnant so I'm counting it as a win even if it wasn't perfect.

Both Christmas and Christmas eve were perfect for us. We had a great two days full of food, family and fun. Everyone got just what they wanted in the way of gifts and there was a lot of laughter. I couldn't have asked for anything more. :-D

Ours was great. We got to spend time with our families & everything was very laid back.

I got no gifts (yet) and the only thing that could have made yesterday better was DF not working all day/night.


Otherwise I think I had a great day. Even caught up on walking dead before the new doctor premiere ( side note, RIP 11)

Mine was better than I expected. I went into it thinking I was just going to have a quiet dinner with dh, my sister and bil. I ended up getting a small paycheck for some work I did, a pie from my stepson, a movie night at my sister's, abs then she sent me home with her entire Harry Potter book set and her spare kindle because she's downsizing to make room in her new house. I actually got kind of spoiled.
