Christmas Day

Christmas Day was just as wonderful as Christmas Eve.  Lorelai woke up about 7:00 (we've been just letting her wake up when she wants to while I'm on Christmas break) and we fed her a bottle and headed into the living room to see if Santa came!

We showed her how the cookies and milk were gone and how the key was returned.  Then we read the story of Jesus' birth from the bible again before we started opening presents.  Then we opened Lorelai's stocking and all of her presents!  In her stocking she got a Larry (just like the one at Grammy and Pop's house), a monkey, and a wooden worm!  Some other things she got were "Your Baby Can Read", a cabbage patch doll (Reece), some clothes, and (of course) more books!

After opening presents, we ate breakfast, took a play break, and got ready to head over to Grammy and Pop's for brunch and another Christmas!

We got there around 10 and just played and snacked on all of the cooking food.  Bryan and Missy got there around 11:30 and we sat down for brunch (it counted as lunch for LL).  Yummy homemade cinnamon rolls, pigs in a blanket, and (my favorite) golden rod eggs!  After we ate, it was time for more presents. 

This part just seemed to chaotic to me!  It felt like everyone was opening presents all at the same time.  We got home later and I realized that I didn't even know about some of the gifts Matt had gotten because it got so crazy!

Around the end of opening presents, LL got really fussy and I realized that it was about 30 minutes past her bottle time (oops!) and that she was exhausted.  I fed her a bottle and put her down for her nap.  When she woke up, we took our family pictures, and then headed to my mom's for just a couple of minutes.

We stayed at Gigi's for about an hour and then headed home.  We were all pooped!  Overall, Christmas was wonderful and I can't wait to see how much she enjoys it next year!
