Christmas was so much fun this year! We had such a great time with our families during the holidays. The girls went out to dinner at Othello’s in Edmond for Christmas Eve with both sets of grandparents, Uncle Grant and Mommy and Daddy of course. They were a hit at the restaurant and did great. We went to Nana and Papa’s Christmas morning. The girls were absolutely spoiled to say the least. Clothes, toys and many other special items including the beginning of their first college fund through the Oklahoma 529 plan. That was awesome. Also, Aunt Amanda and Uncle Michael had a video collage made of the times during my pregnancy through the girls’ birth. I was so taken back watching it. One, seeing myself pregnant again and secondly, being reminded of our journey and how tiny the girls were at birth. They have come a LONG way since last year. It was a very memorable gift!
We then made a pit stop home to eat and drop off our car load of gifts. Then we were off to Mimi and Papa’s house to see them and Uncle Grant. And again, they were spoiled. Lots of clothes and toys again. They got these adorable chairs with their names monogrammed on them. Can’t wait for them to use them and watch a little movie someday. They got so many of the great classic videos too. Mary Poppins, Lady and the Tramp, 101 Dalmations, Little Mermaid…to name a few.
Needless to say these girls are in need of absolutely nothing! Bryan and I were showered with some great gifts for us too 🙂 The girls were not into tearing wrapping paper too much. It was a battle just to eat, open gifts and keep them from not crawling on everything and into everything in the house. We thought they would be so tired that they might reward us by sleeping all night but nope. They woke up from 3-4:30 am. I keep praying it gets better. But, the Christmas events were more than we deserve and so much fun with the girls.
I got an unbelievable camera from Bryan and I can’t wait to practice on my subjects all day long! Here are some pictures that I practiced with over Christmas. Some with the Iphone and some with my new Nikon camera. Enjoy!
Only a few this time of Avery. She was the one climbing all over the gifts and wanting to be a big girl standing up to everything!
It was a great 1st of many!
