Merry Christmas

We have had a fabulous Christmas! It was so special waking up to a white Christmas in our own home. Evie was so excited to see what Santa brought her. We were not sure what to expect but she knew just what to do. Evie went straight to her kitchen and started cooking away. She put her oven mitts on and went to town. Her chair was a big hit too. She sat right down and read Elmo some books. We did not get Evie tons of stuff and she had a blast with all of her toys.

Carl really surprised me with an iPad. I love it and it is so much easier than a laptop. Carl loved his sled and might get to use it soon from the weather reports we are seeing on television.

We had a nice breakfast before Carl's parents left for Atlanta. They took the snow to Evie's cousins. We were sad to see them go but are so glad they came to be with us for Christmas. Carl really appreciated them being here for his birthday.

Evie played outside in the snow and then we had some hot chocolate. We had lots of time for playing with all of her new toys. Evie was so impressed that Santa brought her some jelly beans. I am pretty sure that she had about 100 jelly beans today. YIKES! It's a good thing Christmas only comes once a year.

Evie and I napped while Carl checked out the weather. Evie played a bit before we headed back outside. We had fun hanging out with our neighbors in the snow. Evie loved all their toys especially their John Deere gator.

We came inside to warm up. Evie decided she was ready for something healthy and nutritious. We started packing for our adventure to my parent's house in the morning in the snow. It looks a little crazy out there but we will take it slow and are so excited to see my parents and brother. Evie will be thrilled to have Christmas all over again tomorrow!

Carl prepared the filet's and we had a delicious dinner celebrating his birthday. We had a wonderful, relaxing Christmas. There was no agenda. We just did what we wanted to do. Carl got his fill of the The Weather Channel, I snacked and slept, Evie played and we had lots of family time together.  It was so special being in our home and seeing Evie really experience the magic of Christmas. Merry Christmas!

  1. It sounds like a wonderful Christmas! I think Santa did a great job for Evie. I am envious of no agenda and look forward to staying home in the snow tomorrow. I can't wait to hear more about the iPad!
