scenes from our Christmas 2013

Each year we get "matchy" Christmas eve outfits instead of pj's (but Mia got pj's, too!) and this year I kind of dropped the ball so we just wore our festive outfits that we wore for family pictures :) Next year I will do better with the whole matching theme.
Mia, daddy and grandpa Santa. I thought Mia would like Santa better if it was grandpa, but nope! She just can't get passed the beard, ha ha! She kept waving at him the whole time, and I'm pretty sure she was waving goodbye. Check out my IG for a classic picture of Mia sitting on Grandpa Santa's lap :)
Grandpa was dressed up because in Eric's hometown Santa visits every one's home on Christmas Eve! Mia was still scared of the Santa that came to our home :)
Mia's Christmas pj's that she picked out! We let her choose between three and this was the lucky winner :) P.S. Those eyelashes?!!
Santa came!!
Daddy was a good sport to fake that smile even though he just woke up :) Oh the joys of Christmas morning!
SOOOOO EXCITED! Check out my IG for a video of Mia and her rocking hippo.
I won't name names, but only one of us got dressed and ready for the day on Christmas....
My favorite view this Christmas season!

This Christmas was so amazing! Last year was incredibly special having a precious 5 day new baby, but I was totally out of it and Eric worked. So I loved spending this Christmas together and watching Mia's excitement :)
We were able to travel to my in laws for the special day and we truly had the best time together! Mia couldn't get enough of playing with her cousins and it was so nice to relax and hangout together. All of Eric's siblings were there which rarely happens (and of course we didn't get pictures, OOPS!) so it was such a treat!
We ate SO good (ie: prime rib for Christmas dinner) and we ate waaaay too much of everything!
I will always look back and remember this Christmas being so amazing because of our darling little Mia and our loving family! Life is good. We are SO blessed! And I owe it all to my Heavenly Father who loves us all SO much that He sent Christ to Earth to die for us... I hope we never forget the gift of baby Jesus and all He has done for us.

Seriously LOVE her, how awful is it we didn't even take Savanna to see Santa this year. I kept wanting too, but hubs was super busy with work and we couldn't find the time. I can't believe how disoragnized being a mom has made me! I didn't even send out Christmas cards this year!

Merry Christmas to you and your family! I love making granny ripples they almost produce themselves, lovely rhythmic ripples, you can just let your mind wander while the hook does the work.
