Christmas this year was busy as usual but great. So much fun with Little E with us now. Of course she didn't know what was going on but hell that is ok we had fun. We stayed overnight Christmas Eve and Christmas night with my parents and it was great to have my parents got to spend some quality time with the girl. Ella definitely has Grandpa wrapped around her tiny little fingers that is for sure. He is very funny and would probably chat with Ella 24 hours a day if he could. We woke up Christmas morning to a smiley baby in her pack n play and exchanged gifts as a family. I got a pretty necklace with an E engraved on it and a kind.le which I am in love with. Shazam got some bling as well. Ella got a book from Santa and 2 books from Mommy and Mama. After some breakfast we pried Ella out of Grammy's arms and went to Shazam's sister's house for some more Christmas fun. We were worried Little E would be overwhelmed by all the activity over there but she was great and after getting a full belly she fell asleep in my arms. She ended up sleeping in her car seat for her full afternoon nap which was great and allowed us to visit with my mil and fil which was really nice. We then returned to my parents house for Stockings and presents with my parents, sister, and sister's boyfriend. It was nice and Ella was pretty well behaved and the turkey dinner was very yummy. So we made it to all our Christmas obligations without a total meltdown by Ella or Mommies. I would call this Christmas a sucess.
Last year on the 26th I wrote this post. Now 12 months later we have an almost 6 month old! Crazy huh! Three was definitely our lucky number and Ella certainly was a wonderful Christmas gift!
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care.
