This was the best Christmas that we have had so far. It was so fun to be able to share it with Judah and to think that the fun is just beginning. Next year will be even more fun with him.
On Christmas Eve, we went to Jeremiah's Grandma's house and celebrated with his side of the family. Then on Christmas morning, just the 3 of us opened presents together as a family. Later Christmas day, my side of the family came over and we spent the rest of the day opening presents, eating yummy food and visiting. I really love having company over. I am such a perfectionist though that I stress out about it too much. I seriously need to just chill out.
This is a picture of Judah heading toward the tree on Christmas morning. He was happy to finally be able to mess with those fun look'n presents!
I love this little stocking that I found. It was in the dollar bin at Target. Eventually, I want to have matching stockings with our names monogrammed for each person in our family but, that just didn't happen this year. We can re-use this stocking though for our future children's first Christmas. In case it's hard to read, it says "Baby's First Christmas".
Isn't this sign with his name on it cute? I think I want to glue the pieces down and put it on his wall. I know it's supposed to be a toy but, I think it'd be a fun decoration.
Amazing, my husband and I took a picture of us. We don't have very many pictures of just the 2 of us since we've had Judah.My mom had so much fun hanging out with her Grandson's and just being a Grandma. The cousins were so cute playing together in their matching shirts. I love that we can dress them matching. Them are almost the exact same size too.
One of the little highlights of the day is that both boys took a long nap during dinner. We were all able to sit around the table together, just adults and not have to try and keep them occupied. Judah was off sleeping peacefully in his crib and we set the play pen up in our room for Noah. It worked out great and it made the meal so much more relaxing.
During dinner, my 83 year old Grandma asked us to explain Twitter to her and then my 59 year old uncle was trying to understand why people would want to text each other. It was pretty funny to try and explain these things. It was also pretty funny to hear my mom try and explain texting. Sometimes you just have to smile and nod.
All texting and twittering aside, it was a great Christmas and we are so blessed to be able to celebrate Christ's birth with awesome family and friends. I am so thankful that we know the real reason we are celebrating!
