Getting Excited for Christmas

Evie is getting excited about Christmas. She loves all the presents under the tree and seeing all the Santa's everywhere.

   We had a good family day yesterday. Carl needed an oil change so we dropped his truck off before we headed out for our adventures. Our first stop was Goodwill for a Christmas sweater for a party that we are going to tomorrow night. It was time for lunch so we tried a new spot. They did not have highchairs so Evie sat in the booth with us. She loves to go out to eat and get a big girl cup. The cup got a hole in it and lemonade went everywhere. Our food was good but that was an exhausting lunch.

    We came home for naps and then I went to run a few errands. Carl worked on getting Evie's new kitchen set ready which took some concentration. We were ready for bed last night.

         We woke up this morning to prepare for Carl's parents. Evie was so excited to see her Sheshe and Poppy. She had so much fun investigating all the new toys and luggage coming in the house. Poppy and Sheshe gave her a little toy wand filled with candy. Evie was so happy watching the snowman twirl and talking about her "tee tacs" in the wand.  We had some Brunswick stew for lunch and the Evie napped a bit.

   Sheila needed to pick up a few things so we headed out for a bit. Traffic was crazy but the stores were not that bad at all. Evie was awake when we got home. Everyone besides me went for a walk. It's too cold for me!

    Dinner was our last meal swap meal and it was so delicious! I cannot wait for the next meal swap. Evie loved dessert best and devoured her peppermint ice cream.


  1. Glad the Christmas season is off to a wonderful start. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  2. Wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas! I can't wait to hear about all of Evie's adventures. Looks like you may even get a little snow!

  3. Happy Early Christmas, and an early Happy Birthday to Carl!! I hope he has an awesome day!! Merry Christmas to you all, and to all a good night!
