Christmas Wrap-up!

We had a wonderful Christmas!  Hannah had so much fun this year!  I had to work Christmas Eve night, so when I got home Caleb had Hannah eating breakfast in the area of our kitchen where she couldn't see the living room.  We set up Santa before I left for work.  After she ate we were going to take her to the living room, well Caleb needed his glasses, so he ran to get them. Meanwhile Hannah was REALLY wanting to go watch 'mik-mi' (Mickey).  I was holding her back to keep from running into the living! She was crying 'mik-mi, mik-mi' LOL it was so funny.  Caleb gave me the go ahead once he got the video going and I let her loose. But now she's so upset.  She runs over to the living room...crying...doing her pre-way to early-toddler-tantrum until she finally stops and looks at the living room.  Her reaction was priceless and I'm so glad we caught it on camera.  (if I can figure out how to upload it, I will). She didn't know what to do! Finally she ran over to the baby stroller...with a big plush Mickey Mouse in it. She was all smiles after that.  It was so much fun.  We let her play with her Santa toys, my mom got there, then we loaded up the presents and headed over to Caleb's parents house for presents and breakfast.  Total chaos with three little ones opening presents, but so much fun!  Caleb's sisters bought the girls a yellow mini-cooper.  Hannah discovered it first and thought it was all hers! Haha! So we opened presents, played, ate, then headed home.  My mom had some more special presents  waiting for Hannah back at the house, then it was nap time for Hannah....and mommy too. We got a solid 1 hour nap : / then headed back to the in-laws for a late lunch.  Played some more, then home, bath, bed by 7pm for Hannah...and mommy.  I was exhausted, but managed to make it being awake a ridiculous amount of time with a 1 hour nap.  It was a wonderfully, blessed Christmas, but it was missing someone for sure.  Next year will be awesome!

  1. just a quick note on the zhu zhu pets, don't let her get them too close to her hair. they have a problem with sucking up the hair in the wheels and you'd have to cut her hair to get them out. Ava Grace doesn't have much hair so for us not a huge deal yet, but Hannah does so be careful.
