Our Christmas 2012

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We sure did! Sophia enjoyed and understood it so much more. I love everything about it even if I'm still exhausted from Christmas & the days leading up to it. 

I am a HUGE procrastinator & waited until last minute for everything. I spent all of Christmas Eve running around picking up last minute presents and groceries. But I did it. Next year I WILL start everything earlier.. I have to. I don't think I'd be so exhausted if I wasn't running around like a crazy woman the day before. Luckily I had Christmas Eve {Monday} off work so I was able to use that day to get stuff done. I loved having a four day weekend.

We visited with family on Christmas Eve so Sophia skipped her nap that day. Christmas Eve night was miserable! She was so out of it and fighting sleep. I put her Christmas pajama's on and had plans to make cookies and leave them and milk out for Santa but she decided to throw a huge fit on the floor and eventually passed out.

Luckily she was in a better mood Christmas morning. She LOVED everything! I have a video that I'll have to post of us walking down the stairs with her Christmas morning. My parents came over to watch her open presents so they were able to capture it all. Sophia got A LOT of toys. Most of it were girly things. She got a hair/nail salon, dress up clothes, lots of Dora toys, an easel, a Mickey Mouse play house, tricycle, a huge Barbie dolls & lots more. I wanted to name the basics so that I can look back and remember

We spent the rest of the day/evening watching Sophia play with her toys.  

We ended the evening with dinner and The Grinch. Sophia is obsessed with this movie. I'm sad that the holidays are over and it's back to work and normal life but I'm thankful for the past few days. Watching Sophia's excitement all day was everything that I wanted for Christmas.

Leaving you all with a picture of Sophia with a mouth full of pumpkin roll. 
Have a great day!

    Merry Christmas!

  2. Looks like she had such a fun Christmas! She is such a cutie. Her curly hair melts my heart! Glad you all enjoyed the holidays. I was like you, sad to see it end. It's a lot of stress in the days leading up to it but it's so worth it. Now I dread the whole cleaning up part but it has to be done. That my friend is on today's agenda!
