This Christmas I was really blessed. Not only did I get to spend my first Christmas in Houston surrounded by new family but my parents also fly in tomorrow (This will be their first trip here). With all of the people we had over for Christmas it reminded me of my childhood spent rotating at my cousins' homes. Every year the entire family would gather on the 25th for dinner, and I'm talking the ENTIRE family! The 24th was always spent with my grandparents, in the German tradition of course. This year we were able to blend everyone's traditions, German, Greek, and American. We had my traditional crab soup for Christmas eve dinner and I was able to make the Greek cookies my mom and I always make.

This was the first Christmas in a few years I was able to spend with my family (gotta love working retail during the holidays!) and it truly was an amazing Christmas. I can't wait until my parents and my brother arrive tomorrow to do another Christmas all together!

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas. xoxo

A German tradition that everyone gets plates filled with treats, fruits, and nuts.
