Christmas was a success over here. Not going to lie, it definitely beat our last Christmas when Andrew and I were staying in a hotel without any of our kids (well, Skye wasn’t born yet obviously) and then driving that entire night back home to Utah from California. It felt so good to be all together and home yesterday. Brooke leaves tonight until Sunday to be with her dad so we will make sure to get even more quality time in today before she is off to her second Christmas (Knox celebrated with his mom on Sunday morning)!
Thankfully, we got an inch or two of snow to wake up to because the kids have prayed for snow on Christmas for the last week.
Brooke and Knox slept in Brooke’s room (a tradition we want to do is to let the kids all have a big sleepover Christmas Eve). I was awake with Skye and as I was rocking her in her room, I could hear Brooke and Knox’s conversation. They were both talking a million words per minute and their excitement was through the roof.
We started opening presents at about 7. Andrew and I were surprised with each present the kids opened too ha… we did our Christmas shopping and wrapping forever ago so we couldn’t remember what we bought for them ha.
I’ll spare you all of my cheesiness about how special it was to celebrate Skye’s first Christmas;) It was pretty amazing.
Thanks to Andrew I’m all stocked up on lip gloss for the next two months;)
After all of the present opening we had breakfast. I just wish this could be our breakfast every day. PS one of the reasons I love making my own cinnamon rolls is because then I can add as much frosting as I want and don’t have to worry about them being overcooked;)
This might be the last time that Andrew buys a Lego set that has 1,000 pieces ha. It took quite some time to put it all together!
Andrew’s favorite team is the Angels. He has loved them forever. I was able to get a bat signed by Mike Trout (his favorite player) and he loved it!!
I was excited for some snuggling time on the couch while reading my new book. The light must have been too bright for Skye…
Skye was the only one to get dressed up yesterday… I couldn’t resist seeing her in this outfit:) The rest of us stayed in comfy clothes.
Two tired parents that each got a nap at different times yesterday for part of our Christmas presents to each other. Definitely one of my favorite presents. Oh and for the rest of our meals yesterday we had leftover lasagna from the day before. Both Andrew and I realized we have another weird similarity… we love cold lasagna (that’s pretty weird)!
While we missed our families yesterday, luckily we were able to talk to a lot of them!
Oh and do you remember my cousin that I used to hang out with all of the time? She lives in Tahoe now and stopped by our house to meet Skye! It was so good to see her!
What was the best part of your Christmas?
What are your plans today… if you are working, do you have the day off today?
What’s your run today? I’m thinking of getting in a walk today!
If you had a personal chef that came over each morning and could make you anything for breakfast each morning, what would you have?
-Cinnamon rolls, all of the fruit, hot chocolate and an omelet.
