Christmas Day

Our tree the night before Christmas.. I was so excited to see my girls opening their gifts.

Present time! Baby sister didn't really open anything, but she was trying hard to get her sister's toys.. We gave baby sister a baby doll, a fisher price zoo and that little dog.

Baby girl got a dollhouse this year. I was SO excited!!! She got some rooms for the dollhouse, movies, tinkerbell dolls and I can't even remember. She kept asking santa for a dog and stuffed penguin. So we got her that too, a furreal dog, she named Riley (after the dog we lost in June). She named her penguin, Pingu...

I named baby sister's doggy, Perry.

Holidays are always stressful.. I've decided that I am going to do what I want with my family, and the grandparents and other family members just need to work around it. Hubby and I each have a sister. Each sister have inlaws.. There are way too many families to make happy and it gets too stressful. I want to enjoy my husband and daughters.. So this year, I chose not to get stressed. lol

It was a good day. On Saturday we spent all day home, cleaning and baking. My girl loves to help me bake, it's the sweetest thing. I made a chocolate chip pumpkin pie and a triple layer chocolate cake, all made from scratch. I haven't baked this way in about 5-6 years. lol My baby girl was right there with me, watching and helping.

We also made cookies for Santa and a ginger bread house. :) She had so much fun and was worn out by bedtime.

Christmas Eve

I feel so blessed to celebrate another Christmas with my sweet baby girl. She's so excited, it's so fun to see Christmas as a parent, especially now that she is starting to understand everything. I love when she says that we're celebrating Jesus' birthday. :)

I am so thankful that God has blessed me with this little girl. It's our first Christmas with her and I'm so excited. She has no idea what's going, but sure loves looking at the lights. :)

This Christmas Eve, I sit here awake, at 1:30 am, anxious for the celebrations to begin. I feel so blessed to have a wonderful hubby and 2 little princesses to spend this day with. I look forward to teaching my girls the meaning of Christmas and building new traditions with them.

It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Christmas time is so fun when you have kids. It's so neat to see it through their eyes. My 3 year old is finally understanding the concept and is having a blast. I've been teaching her that we buy gifts for others and taken her shopping for her cousins... She's helped us decorate the tree and even decorated her own little Christmas tree that we put in her room. We've done lots of Christmas crafts. I still plan on making a gingerbread house and sugar cookies... She's also discovered Santa and has a LONG list for him. lol Between Target and Amazon, I've spent a LOT of money on her. lol I feel kind of bad b/c baby sister isn't getting as much as her big sister, but it's hard to shop for a 4 month old.

Wow, I can hardly believe she's 4 months old... She's been a blast lately, laughing and giggling. We've started letting her cry it out and our nights have gone SO much better. She was keeping us up till 2am everynight crying or just hanging out. Now we just put her in her bed and within 10-20 minutes she's asleep. It's been so nice! She is such a smiley and happy baby, I love it!

She loves gluing stuff :)
