About a week ago, my mother calls me up and asked if I wanted to celebrate Christmas a little earlier this year, so I could at least be home for some sort of holiday get together. And I thought that was an awesome I idea. So we had set today, 2 days after Thanksgiving, as this year's official Christmas morning. Yes my friends, Patty and I celebrated Christmas this year, with my family, in November. It was actually very cool to have my Grandmother, Bob, Mom, Step Father, Brother, Patty and myself exchange gifts before I left for Charleston for the month. And let me tell you all, this year's Christmas was one of very motivational and weight loss friendly gifts. First off, I can't tell you how great it was to receive clothes that actually fit me and weren't hanging off my body. I have not gone clothes shopping since the start of my mission. I love being able to put an XL T-Shirt on and not have to worry about it being way to tight. Patty and I also received a Weight Watcher's cook book that goes through, step by step, on how to prepare great tasting meals in 20 minutes or less! And the big gift that Patty and I received from my Mom and Step Father, was a new set of cooking pots and pans!! I can't wait to taste the meals that Patty makes with our new cooking set.
I can't explain how much it means to me that we were able to celebrate some sort of holiday before I left for the month. Everything that I received tonight, will help me to continue to move forward with my mission. And I am still going to celebrate Christmas with my Father and Step Mother when I get home as well as Patty's family. I hope you all have a great rest of the night and I will talk to you tomorrow.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
