Christmas & Wigilia!

Merry Christmas!
I had a wonderful whirlwind of a Christmas - spending it between NY and MA with my family and Mike's. We drove up to Cairo NY on Friday after I got out of school. Friday night we went to Joe's brothers house for a get together. It was a lot of fun and a lot of sangria and buffalo chicken dip. Saturday I got to celebrate Wigilia with Mike's family. This is their Christmas Even celebration - the Polish version of Christmas Eve. We had a delicious fish dinner (everything Mike's mom cooks is delish), wine and presents. Sunday morning we woke up early to drive back to my parents for presents & breakfast with my family. After hours of gift opening (we open one at a time) we got ready and headed to my aunts. Things always get silly and wild after a few hours when we're all together. We played would you rather, and somehow, not unlike Thanksgiving, wound up wearing fake mustaches again. I took only a few pictures all day, as I was trying to soak in the moments. Therefore, I only have a few moments to share with you....
