Eme's first Christmas was perfect.
On Thursday night we started with a trip to Hershey Park's CandyLane. 'Twas cold but SO much fun. You can see by Emeline's expressions that she had a good time. Yea?
Christmas Eve morning we had our little family time. Breakfast...christmas music...coffee...and presents.
We had a good time soaking up the memories with our baby. So what if she was more interested in the paper than the gifts? Was still special in every way.
Christmas Eve we headed to my in-laws and had a great time too. I have no photos from this time since Declan's sister is a photographer--I leave that part up to her :) I'll get some eventually from her.
Early the next morning, we headed to my parents, in PJ's---and had a crazy, fun time. There were six kids, 3 dogs, and lots of adults trying to stay sane amongst the madness. But, of course, in a happy-"It's Christmas!" type of way. Was good. So, good.
But---the most special part of the day was when this happened. And? We felt so lucky to be a part of it and get to witness it:
My sister, Susan and her fiance, Gerald----ENGAGED!
Thank the Lord, I was gonna burst. I've known all week and I tell my sister everything. But? This was so special that of course I kept it from her. She was surprised, and so so so very happy. So are we.
Hoping your Christmas was pretty awesome, too.
