Merry Christmas 2016

I cant believe it took me so long to post about our Christmas. The week after Christmas, before New Years, I felt lost. It was like, “The holidays are over but I’m not sure what to do with myself” type of week. Addi was still on break and the craziness of all the Christmas shopping was over. So it felt very quiet out. So this is why I am here now, barely posting about it. I feel like I am catching up on things.

Our Christmas was perfect for us. My parents came up and spent the weekend with us. The girls were so excited to see them and they were happy to experience Emmi's first Christmas with us. The girls got the cutest pink kitchen, that I have been wanting to give them for a while now but we kept it hidden instead. It took Spencer, my dad, and myself two hours to put together! But it was so worth it for them. I will tell you, I did not sleep very well Christmas Eve night because I was so excited for one, and two, I kept thinking that Addi might wake up and go downstairs. Finally, Christmas morning came and we could not wait to see Addis reaction. Emmi still had no idea what was going on. I got three pictures into my camera when it said I had run out of memory! Seriously. The worst. Ever!

So iPhone photos it was. Emmi did not care to open any of her presents. Addi was more than happy to help her though. Addi got everything she wanted and she was so excited when she opened the ONE present she really asked for, the MC2 spy box? No idea where she got that from because I have never heard of it. Our dinner was amazing. My mom and I cooked it together and I ate too much of it. We spent the day playing with new toys and watching more Christmas movies. I loved everything about this Christmas. I couldn’t have asked for a better day. I love that it got spent with the people I love the most.

…and yes, Emmis first Christmas ornament is still empty!
