So, I finally have some time to write about our Christmas. It was great.
Christmas Eve, we did what we needed to do here (baking, packing, and such) and then we went over my parents' house. Our family tradition is to open the presents under the tree Christmas Eve night, but now since there's little ones, we did it pretty early. It was really great to see everyone together. It was my dad, my mom, my sister (Amber) and her husband, my other sister (Sarah) and her son (Sean), Kevin, Leala and I. Lots of people, but we had tons of fun.
Leala did pretty good while opening presents. She did have to eat, so we skipped her turn a few times, while I breastfed her. Then she fell asleep for about 10-15 minutes too. But after that, she was able to finish opening everything.
Sean, my nephew, did great this year too. He just turned 2 last month, so he knew more of what was going on and what he was supposed to be doing.
We stayed the night at my parents' house that night to make things easier. Christmas Day morning we woke up and Leala got to do her stocking. We had lots of fun that day. Everyone else came back over too, to eat Christmas dinner (around 11 am). After that, most of everyone had another family to go see, so we all parted ways.
Kevin, Leala and I went to see his family, and we all got to sit and open our presents together there too. This was the first year that we were able to do that, so it was really special. Leala had fun, but she was getting tired and really needed a nap. She does well with people, but of course, she was getting overstimulated.
Overall, it was great and we all had a good time. Leala got tons of clothes and toys, even a new princess piggy bank! She loves it all. We even have to trick her to get her away from her toys.. haha.
Okay, so no more waiting. Here's the pictures you've been waiting for! Some family members might stop by my blog and look at the pictures, so I apologize if there's too many here.. haha..
For now, I will only post pictures from my parents' house.. Tomorrow I will post some with Kevin's family. I still haven't been able to transfer those to my laptop yet.
