It’s The Most Wonderful Time of Year


Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays!

I hope you all enjoyed your holiday. New Years is still coming up in a couple of days, so the party hasn’t ended just yet.

Our first Christmas as a family was great! This year we decided to stay at home as a family instead of going back to our hometowns with our parents (mostly financial reasons and because we wanted to spend it as a whole family together). I made dinner on Christmas Eve and we had one of my husband navy buddy’s over. Our son opened one present before bed, because it was one of my traditions growing up. He, of course, was more entertained by the wrapping paper then the book he opened. We stayed up until 4am playing video games (Star Wars: Battlefront).


Christmas morning we got up opened our presents; which again our son had a field day with the wrapping paper. He did love his Sophie squeeze toy. I highly recommend them for teething babies. We stayed in our pajamas all day, watched christmas movies, ate leftovers, and Skyped with our family. {I got a shopping spree as a christmas present from my husband, my mom gave us a new EOS Canon T5i camera as well many gifts for our son, and my in laws got us clothes and gift card to Macy’s as well as many gifts for our son.} That was pretty much all our fun family activities. I can not wait until next year when our son is a little more aware about holidays and activities we do together. Speaking of activities, we did do another finger painting (in the this case foot painting) for the holiday. Inspired by Pinterest, I had my eyes set on this idea to have ‘Mistletoes.’


It’s little activities like this that get me excited for when his motor skills develop more and more so he can do more independently.

After the new year, I will be posting about my ‘New years resolution’ and some ideas to share to add to yours. I also have a big surprise I want to write about that I’m doing for my husband after this week is over. Stay tuned!


P.S. Share and comment about your Holiday traditions and what you did this passed week with your friends and families! 🙂
