This year was a laid back Christmas, which is exactly what I needed because I have been so worn out from work and the baby. I had 5 days off of work in a row!!!!!
We did Christmas with my extended family on Sunday. It was tons of fun. We discovered that: 1)Makenna is a pro at unwrapping presents, 2)She loves to play with Raelee's toys, and 3)Raelee loves to play with Makenna's toys. It was very funny to watch because Raelee would be opening a present herself, but would always have her eyes on what Makenna was opening.
Monday morning Michael and I woke up at 4:30 and took goodies to the nurses and techs at Centre Pointe Rehab. They had all watched me throughout the whole pregnancy and have never gotten to meet Makenna or Michael. They totally ate her up. After Centre Pointe we went to HealthSouth with goodies so that Michael's co-workers could see Makenna. Then we drug ourselves back home and went back to bed until about 2:30 in the afternoon. It was glorious to sleep that long! And Makenna was being awesome and sleeping too! Then we went shopping for the few last minute gifts. We got to Blue Abbaco and it was closed. We got the the Gem Collection right after it closed. We gave up on fancy stores and went to Walmart... right as the major downpour began... (yay).... nothing like being soaked to the bones... we managed to keep Makenna dry somehow.
That night we had Christmas with my family at my parent's house. Makenna had so much fun unwrapping more gifts. She and Raelee got matching babydolls from my parents. Makenna's is so cute because it a ladybug babydoll. After we got home Babygirl went to bed and Michael and I cuddled up and watched some TV.
Christmas morning we went over to the in-laws. We had a yummy Christmas breakfast and then opened gifts. Makenna got so spoiled! The best gift of all was a gift Michael's mom made for us with Makenna. It was a snowman ornament. The snowmen were made from Makenna's handprint. She also made us a picture with Makenna's handprints and a card with footprints. It was awesome. Michael's brother got a gun for Christmas so we shot some cans. The rest of the day we just hung out and relaxed.
I also had Wednesday off of work. I spent the day cleaning and organizing the house and also took some time to relax. This Christmas was super fun and full of family. We took time everyday to remember the reason for the season: Little Baby Jesus's birth.
Yummy wrapping paper (side note: Notice the bow on her head... she FINALLY has enough hair to get a bow in it!!)
