Christmas 2011 went by in the blink of agh n eye! We had a very busy Christmas weekend filled with family, food, carols and presents! It was awesome. We barely got any presents for Miss I and we didn't actually end up wrapping any for her, because it was kind of pointless, even though she loved the tissue paper and bags. I figure we have a lifetime of spoiling her and she frankly, didn't need much. And I will buy her other stuff as she needs it.
Christmas Eve day we spent with the in-laws eating a yummy brunch and Miss I even got to try sweet potatoes with the good stuff on them, brunch dish and cheesy potatoes. She also ate her mum mums and some applesauce. ;) After stuffing ourselves we opened presents where some gift highlights for me were an appetizer cookbook, sweater/shirt, books (Cutting Stone & Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, Little House on the Prairie Set), food processor and new hair curlers. Miss I got some clothes, books and a Little People Zoo set up.
Christmas Eve night we went over to another relatives and hung out and ate some more food until Miss I was getting cranky so we brought her home to get ready for bed, had a photo shoot and then my husband and I opened presents that we got each other.
Christmas Day my parents and brother came over and spoiled Miss I. She got more toys, clothes and books. My parents very generously bought my husband and me plane tickets to accompany them on spring break this year. ;) I am very spoiled. We ate brunch dish and cinnamon rolls and then after Miss I took a nap we headed into my aunts house where we ate MORE food and visited with relatives until after 7.
Our house is a toy store and we have one happy little girl. She was such a trooper with all of our plans and I couldn't have asked for a better 1st Christmas for my girl. The only thing I would change? Get someone who could work our camera so we have a decent photo of the three of us!
How was your Christmas? Did you get any books? What was your favorite gift?
