Merry Christmas Collin! And everyone else!
This has always been a very busy time of year for us, but throwing a baby into the mix just changes everything. It was so much fun experiencing the holiday through the eyes of the baby – exploring all the different gifts and ripping the paper and looking at the lights. Those little things are often lost upon us adults, it was great to see it all again.
We had a great Christmas and just celebrated our last one. Haha. We have multiple Christmases because of the way our families are built and it makes for some busy, but fun times. With all of our stops Collin made out like a bandit. He’s got so many new clothes and toys – what a lucky guy. Besides the great gifts for him we were excited to share his first Christmas with everyone else. He’s got a lot of people who love him and he got to see almost all of them on that single day. What a great day. Brian and I had a great time, too, and were very spoiled.
While everything we all received is very much appreciated I must say that the exersaucer from Gaga and Grandpa and the Jumparoo from Pup and Wendy are huge hits. Collin just loves being able to stand up and play all on his own. It is so fun to watch him checking everything while occasionally looking over to make sure we are still there. I can’t believe how big he’s getting!
I have been saying that its been hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that I still have a week off! I can’t believe that, but its true, and I’m so excited. This week we are having an intimate new years party here, which I’m sure Collin is thrilled for! Before then Brian and I have a few projects we want to get done. After that I plan on relaxing, relaxing, relaxing for my last few vacation days. It will be a nice way to end these couple of weeks.
What a great time of year this is! I hope everyone who is reading had a great holiday and has a great new years!
