Christmas 2015

We had a great Christmas together as a family. On Christmas Eve Day we hung out as a family.  Andrew took Lo to the store to go shopping for me in the morning, and I took Drew to a few stores as well.  Then, Lo and I made monster cookies for Santa when they got back. 

It was beautiful outside, so we played on the trampoline before naptime and then went to my parents that evening to eat dinner and let the kids play together.

When we got home we put out Santa's cookies and put the kids to bed.  Andrew and I stayed up late and finished wrapping gifts and placing them all under the tree.

Christmas morning, Lo woke up and asked if Santa came, saw all the presents and got so excited.  She loved opening presents and wanted to play with every single toy.  She was great with helping Drew open his presents as well.  She was so excited to give me the gift she picked out for me.  She handed me the wrapped present and asked me if I wanted to open up my necklace, haha.  It's the sweetest gift, the necklace says mother, daughter, friendship.  Every time I wear it she comments on my "special necklace."

After Drew took a nap, we headed to my parents house for lunch.  It was delicious and the kids had so much fun opening up more presents.  We came home for naps afterwards and then got ready to head to Andrew's Dad & Stepmoms house for dinner and...more presents.  Lo had so much fun playing with her cousins. 

It was a great day, full of lots of family, lots of food, and lots of presents.  More importantly though, it was a great day to be so thankful for all of God's blessing and celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.
