I was worried that Christmas was going to seem strange this year since it was our first year to have Christmas in this house. But I was totally wrong. We had a wonderful Christmas and it really felt like home here in Texas! It was a little challenging to decorate the house....just figuring out where to place/hang stuff at. Also Little Miss Lucy made it to where we could only decorate the top half of the tree! Hopefully next year she will do better : )
On Christmas Eve my mom and brother drove in from Arkansas. We went to an early Christmas Eve Church service and then out to dinner at Red Lobster. We came back home and opened gifts from family. The kids were excited about their new toys but even more excited that SANTA was coming soon!!
At first Lucy thought that she should eat the gifts....
But then she figured out that she should open them. She had a great time opening gifts. Once one gift was open she was ready to move on to the next one.
she was so excited about her new bike that MawMaw got her.
she has been riding it all around the house
The kids went to bed and actually fell asleep right away. We had fun bringing out all of the gifts and getting everything ready for in the morning. I think we were just as excited as they were for them to wake-up and see what all Santa had brought this year!
