We had a nice, but illness-filled Christmas week. Joel was the most giving this year- first passing his sickness and surprising me with an iPhone! ::happy dance::
I enjoyed a super solo night out (no babe or hub) at My work Christmas party. It was good food, good laughs and good company!
I also went ice skating with my gymnastics team. I love being active and ice skating is so much fun. It made me want to get to the mountains for a snowboarding trip. ::hint hint::
My parents hosted Christmas eve and we had a house full of my crazy/awesome family and some friends we haven't seen in a while. My childhood BFF even made a guest appearance with his mom!
Baby A and I were at our peak sick day on Christmas, so there was a lot of cuddling, nursing and sleeping -all of which would have been amazing if we felt better. We planned on going to Grammy's house for Christmas dinner, but we didn't make it. Joel was awesome enough to pick up a' take out' plate from Grammy's so we didn't have to miss out on the prime rib and cheesy potatoes! So delicious. And my cousin should honestly open up a bakery bc her cupcakes are like little mounds of heaven.
Little mister is a champion sitter now! He opened presents and played for a while on Christmas Morning.
Joel's parents came down for a few days and they brought two trips worth of presents! "the spirit of Grandma Shank lives on" through Mama Wenger. We enjoyed a few days-eating clam chowder, playing golf, hanging out with baby A.
We are so grateful for our families. We are so grateful for our lives. We are lucky. We have celebrated our first Christmas as parents with our parents.
From this day forward,
