CHRISTmas 2014

Santa brought Mia a golf set! He also brought Mia a kitchen but her rotten parents have decided to wait a few months to put that baby together. We'll wait until she gets sick of her birthday and Christmas toys ;) ha!!
Mia instantly smiled and patted the face when she opened her "pincess! pincess!" my niece picked out for her!
Mia was all about opening every present... even the ones that didn't have her name on them ;)
Playing with her gift from Grandma and Papa B. She asked to play with it allllll day long, ha ha!
Sometimes being an adult is the best thing ever... and the lamest thing ever! The anticipation of seeing Mia with her new gifts nearly kept me awake the whole night before our Christmas, ha ha! But my little family celebrated Christmas on Tuesday because Eric had to work on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day :( We definitely made the best of our time together and had a great day!
It was Christmas with my family this year and since Eric had to work, we spent the day with them on Monday. We went out for lunch, Eric and I ran some errands together while Mia napped (do you call that a date?? ha!), we watched Muppet Christmas Carol and ate treats, saw some Christmas lights and went to dinner. I was so glad my parents got a little "holiday" with Eric since he couldn't be there for the actual day. 
Tuesday morning was such an exciting one as Mia came down the stairs to see that Santa came! It was so adorable to watch her discover each gift and play with it for a bit before moving on to the next one. Mia seriously loves every gift and we looooove watching her play with them (and her birthday gifts! Such a fun week for Mia!) After playing all morning we went out to eat for a late breakfast. Eric went to the gym and I cooked while Mia napped. When she woke up we watched the newest Planes movie that Mia got in her stocking while eating all sorts of junk. A cheese ball and crackers, peppermint puppy chow, eggnog, etc. Mia was in heaven :) We fit dinner in there somewhere and once bedtime arrived, Mia was out cold! It was the best day of perfect gifts, playing and family time! 
It's kind of hard to believe this was our third Christmas with Mia... what?! She was just 5 days new for her first! These memories we get to make with her are absolutely priceless... definitely the best Christmas gift we've received since Christ's birth :) So thankful for this special holiday!

Sounds like y'all truly made the most of Christmas. Bummer that Eric had to work, but I'm glad you were able to stretch the holidays out, just a bit. Mia's face is so cute opening her gift and I can feel her joy!

Glad you had a good one, friend! <3 to you!

Looks like Mia had one heck of a Christmas - I love that her "rotten" parents are holding out on the kitchen set. hahaha So glad ya'll go to spend Tuesday together despite work schedules. My dad's a police officer so I know how that goes some years. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you guys!

awww I am so glad that yall had a good Christmas & was able to celebrate together with Eric! Even if it was on a different day!!

hello erin said...

Awe! I love her! And I stayed awake the whole night in excitement too. Crazy adult problems ;) in glad you guys had such an amazing holiday!!

Elizabeth Birenbaum said...

Sounds like you guys had an amazing week of celebrations! I almost think it is better to celebrate early (especially when they are young enough to know that Santa is coming on the wrong day lol) because then you can just enjoy Christmas Day on the day. Mason got the new Planes movie too and is OBSESSED. We took him to see it in the theater on his bday in July and he sat still the whole time. We watched it the other day and had the same reaction. It was amazing! (And if you haven't seen it yet, it's super cute and the adults like it too!)

tina bumblebee said...

Aw look at how happy she is! Is that a leap frog pad? Lyla got one of those too! It seems like you had many many days of Christmas technically so that's awesome!

Sucks that Eric had to work Christmas (story of my life as a nurse though. Every other year) you just have to make the best of it though! Sounds like you did just that!! And good idea about waiting to put her play kitchen together becauSe as soon as its up she will forget about ALL of her other toys. Scarlett didn't even open any gifts because she was so into her kitchen!!

Erin LFF said...

So glad you made the most of Christmas- my work always tries to get in the way of holiday fun too. But hey, celebrating early and/or late is just as fun! :)

Susannah said...

Awww... What a fabulous time celebrating the holiday. I can't wait until Caleb is old enough to get excited about Christmas. :-)

Amanda said...

Sucks that Eric had to work, but it sounds like ya'll made the best of it and had an amazing family Christmas! Love that ya'll hid some gifts to save after the newness wears off of the others! Best idea ever!!

Brittany said...

I can't even imagine how cute she must be when opening up her gifts! I don't blame you for not being able to sleep with anticipation! Peppermint puppy chow? Oh my word.
