Christmas was a warm blur of good times with our families, and it was made even more special by the arrival of Kyle's sister, her husband, and our perfect niece. We spent the first week they were here totally mesmerized by everything our little niece did. To say we are madly in love with our baby P would be an understatement.
Christmas Eve was spent at our house. This was the first time hosting a holiday dinner by ourselves, and I think we can definitely use some practice. But all in all, it was good! Also, lots and lots of gifts and baby Penny's Minnie Mouse.
Kyle soaking up all of the time he can with Penny. He looks like a natural, right?
On Christmas Day, Kyle had to work so I spent most of it opening gifts with our family and Facetiming with my family in Jacksonville while they opened their gifts. We had a wonderful Christmas dinner, opened more gifts and then came home to open our gifts from each other. Tilly really loves opening gifts. More like sticking her whole body into the bag, but we will count it. Best gift of the night.... R. Kelly's box set of Trapped in the Closet (all of the chapters). Huge R. Kelly fan over here!
A little elf in the house!
On Saturday, we took the pups and headed to my parents house for Christmas round two. We dressed Tilly up in her Christmas tree outfit and opened gifts for another couple hours! My dad loves his little Christmas tree. Her not so much!
And last but not least, two very stuck pups who had a little too much fun in the Christmas lights. We now have the tree and lights down, and I am one sad lady over here. The best time of the year is over, and now we start a new one. Tomorrow starts work again, and as glad as I am to be back in our routine I will miss the whimsy that is this time of year.
