Christmas was a bit slower for us this year. We don't have any family close by, so we relaxed and had our own Christmas. We had the elders over for breakfast - and it was a lot of fun. We told them to come in their pajamas. And Elder Sutherland skyped his family while he was over. He went in the MTC the same time as Lindsey, but since he didn't learn a language, he had been out in Massachusetts for a week already.
We didn't bother getting ready for the day, and actually sat around in our pajamas until about 2:00 in the afternoon. Quite the lazy day. But we did the usual: open presents, eat a ton of good foods, and talk to our family.

It was a very fun and relaxing day. And at the end we went to the movies to see Les Miserables. We don't think we'll make that a Christmas tradition - watching a movie at home would be so much better.
