A Very Merry Christmas

Oh hey there bloggy of mine.  Remember that time I blogged about Christmas in March???? Yeaaaa.  my Mac took a crash on me right after Christmas and I've yet to get it fixed, which has put my little bloggy blog on the back burner.  But since so much time, precious time is passing us by I can't let these special little family times go undocumented.  So, here I sit on my husbands computer trying to play catch up.

Soooo, here we go....


  I was sad to see Christmas go this year, as it was even more fun than the year before.  Didn't think it was even possible, but gosh, it just keeps getting better and better.  She was so proud of our tree, showing everyone who entered the front door, amazed by lights, totally into our holiday baking and in love with Santa, but only from a safe safe distance ;)

This year we drove up to Alabama to spend Christmas with my parents, grandparents, cousin and her family and my brother and his girlfriend.  It was a house full which is pretty much the best for holidays.  We had so much fun just being together, hanging out, eating our weight in goodies and playing cards .

On Christmas Eve we always take our family pictures first in front of the Christmas tree.  I'm pretty sure Brynn only cared about food and presents because she was having no part in these posed pictures as evidenced by her stank eye and wild hair.


After pictures we always open all our presents.  We leave Christmas morning just for the children and their Santa presents.  Brynn opened her first present, a collection of "frozen" nail polishes and it was over.  "Mommy paint!" was on repeat and she could care less about seeing anything else that she got.  Eventually, after hiding the nail polishes she ripped through the rest of her presents....saying "more" after each one.  Eventually becoming more enthralled with paper ripping that what was actually inside.  


After present opening we have a dinner of heavy horduerves.  We always serve the exact same ones every single year, and we always always look forward to it.




Ever since I was a child my mom always read The Night Before Christmas to us before we put out our cookies and milk and headed to bed.  We started this with Brynn last year.  I just love how she sat so still holding my hand in hers while I read it to her.  Be still my heart.


Christmas morning was all about Brynn and what she got from Santa.  He brought her some stocking stuffers, a baby doll, baby stroller, stuffed bubble puppy, coloring book and a potty.




It was the baby stroller that rocked her world.  Which led to hoarding all her peeps into there at once.
I just love it.

It was a very Merry Christmas indeed!
