Our Christmas

I can't believe another Christmas is in the books & we are on the fast track to 2015!

We had SUCH a great Christmas & I'm so excited to share our day with you! 
And I must say, the holidays are so much more for when you have a toddler (& of course when you're not puking for days, like last year)! 
Billy had to work late on Christmas Eve so we went over to my parents house for the night and watched movies and eagerly looked out the windows for Santa ;)

We always sleep at our house Christmas Eve night, wake up and have our little family Christmas and then head over to my parents for the big celebration!
This was our tree after Santa came.
Billy and I decided that we were going to open our presents from each other first, before we woke Abigail up, just because it seemed less overwhelming that way.

My favorite gifts :)
 
Waking Abigail up to show her that Santa came!
 
She had no idea what was going on, but she does love the Christmas tree lights so I'm pretty sure she was pumped to see all the goodies surrounding them this morning.
But first things first, she needed some applesauce & I'm certain she didn't even notice she was sitting in her brand new chair from her aunt mickey.
love my baby girl so much!
This might be the blurriest picture that I ever post on this blog, but it was too good not to share.
Santa brought Abigail a slide for Christmas and she was totally jazzed by it. She saw it, climbed right up and then proceeded to do some sort of acrobatic, slow motion plummet to the ground. I obviously found it was a perfect photo op, while Daddy raced to her rescue. We all have our priorities in the right places.
 
 
After Christmas at our house, we headed over to my parents around 8:30am. My parents don't know how to do a 'small' Christmas so we end up opening presents anywhere between 2-3 hours.
My favorite present :)
 
Later on in the afternoon, we went to go visit Gramps.
& my brother watched Abigail for a bit and took the cutest picture :)
We spent a lot of time outside in the afternoon with the kids and their new rides.
 
Not many pictures after this because it is a yearly tradition in our house that we don't change out of PJs or leave the house all day on Christmas.. so all we did was sit on the couch, watch movies, climb onto the roof (?!) and eat lots of good food.
 
And now on to the gifts.
Maybe it's just because I'm nosy, but I always like to see what people got for Christmas. So before putting everything away, I snapped some pictures of mine, Billy & Abigail's stuff.
Abigail.
 
Billy.
(Not pictured: the das boot & 6 pack of Mr. Huff beer that was gone before 11am)
Me.
That tin is full of Lush bathbombs. That piece of paper is a gift certificate for horseback riding (I've never been!). The bottom right cluster of stuff is a ton of makeup (I only get nice makeup on birthdays and Christmas because I don't buy it for myself :)
 
We were totally spoiled and extremely grateful!
 
I hope you all had a fantastic holiday!
 
XOXO
