Christmas was just lovely, and beyond adorable. Santa came to visit on Christmas Eve, which was both exciting and terrifying.
I think the internal monologue here was something like: "Oooooooh, Santa Santa Santa Santa ohshitohshitoshit. Maybe if I don't move he won't see me."
We eventually bribed the kiddo with a cookie, and got a couple of cute shots of my dad with both grandkids on his lap, and adorable pics of the rest of us with him too. I just love that my dad dresses up as Santa for the littles - they are still talking about it. Next year, it's gonna be full-force Christmas belief from them, and I can't wait. We'll leave cookies and they can sing songs and it'll be just ridiculous.
|This one's from last year - I didn't get any pictures with Santa this year. Next year for sure!|
Last night Ross and I put the kiddo to bed nice and early, and had a lovely evening playing Pinochle with my parents. As I've mentioned before, my family is huge into games. When it's a big group of us, we'll usually pull out Balderdash or Apples to Apples, but in small groups, we are all about cards. And for the first time ever, Ross and I actually beat my parents!
At midnight we toasted with delicious champagne, the kind with delicate little bubbles, and then I went straight to bed.
2014 has lots of good things in store - can't wait to see what it brings!
