We had a wonderful Christmas as a family of four, even though we were exhausted with a newborn. We spent the 23rd in Sugar Land at nanny's house. We had a great time and were spoiled as usual. Lawson and LL got tons of adorable clothes, and I have been having a blast dressing them in each of them. My favorite thing that I got was a certificate to have a canvas pictures made, I still need to pick out what picture I want to have done.
The picture below is at my parents house on Christmas Eve. We always go there Christmas Eve, pig out and open presents. This year we had Mexican food, and I am hungry just thinking about how good it was!
Christmas morning was so much fun now that Lawson is a little older. He loved walking out to new toys to play with. His reaction was priceless and so funny! And sweet Lauralyn happily sat in her seat and watched all the action. It was a little surreal to actually be a family of 4 on Christmas morning. It is amazing how quickly things change. I definitely need to do a better job of living in the moment!
After "Santa Claus", we headed over to my parents house for breakfast. This is probably my favorite tradition. I LOVE my mom's breakfast and it did not disappoint. I even took leftovers to have breakfast again for lunch! I did feel pretty sick to my stomach for some reason, and laid in bed with Lauralyn in my arms and talking to my dad. It was actually a neat little memory. Lawson showed his independence (and his love of food) by sneaking off to the breakfast room while everyone was scattered through the house, sitting at the table and eating what everyone had left on their plates. It was a sight to see him sitting in there all alone just going to town on the food and drinking Orange Julius.
We spent the rest of Christmas day relaxing and playing. It was WONDERFUL! I look forward to the years ahead and teaching Lawson and Lauralyn about Jesus, His birth, His time on earth, and why we celebrate his life at Christmas (and all year for that matter).
