I was hoping I would be in the hospital and wouldn't have time to write this blog post, but seeing that I am not, here goes nothing. We did Christmas at our own home this year because we thought that it would be best not to travel too close to my due date. I honestly thought it was going to be a bust. Christmas is about family and being surrounded by lots of family. And, although I missed both Ty's and my family, we really had a great time. It was so nice having Tyler home and even more fun watching Emree light up as we gave her way too much attention.
The first two pictures are of Emree and Dad going out to do some last minute Christmas Eve shopping. I love the scowl Emree does. She gives us this look multiple times a day!
We made sugar cookies for Santa! Now I know why my mom hates making sugar cookies! They are such a mess. Emree loved, loved, loved making them and I was a GRINCH and hated cleaning it all up.
Christmas morning was so fun! She had to play with every present before we could even get her to think about opening the next one. We have also loved watching her play with her kitchen every day since Christmas. We spend a few hours pretending to make cookies and drink juice. She seriously loves it. I wasn't sure she was quite old enough to get the 'pretend' thing, but I was wrong.
Lastly, We filled the rest of our Christmas Day with doing puzzles (a family tradition) and making gingerbread houses. I also want to throw a quick shout out to my amazing husband. Who, without telling me, filled our stockings and really completed our Christmas. We really didn't give each other much, but I have never felt more loved and that meant the world.
