Christmas Eve we went to my grandma's and my mom came over too. My grandma likes to do gifts and such on Christmas Eve, always has. Sadly we didn't take any pictures!
Sophia received some clothes, headbands and a mobile for her crib, the latter of which mommy was very happy to receive!
I got a pair of Toms (yay!) in the metallic herringbone pattern and Classic style and an at home gel manicure kit. I am really happy about both of those!
Christmas day we snuggled in just the three of us. Our first Christmas in our home and our first Christmas as parents. It was very low key. We'd agreed not to exchange gifts but rather to plan a date night. But, I did sneak and put candy in John's stocking and a bone in the dog's.
I did her morning feeding and then we opened stockings. John bested me this year! He got me crazy socks, yoga pants I'd been eyeing, a chevron print scarf and a pair of Tommy Hilfiger black and herringbone riding boots. I was so surprised!! They are all lovely and fashionable!
Then we slept in, Sophia napping with me in the bed while Papa watched some streaming shows on Netflix.
Around noon Papa started getting together lunch. We had Honeybaked ham, mashed potatoes, dressing, baked beans, macaroni, yeast rolls, turtle pie and Klondike crunch ice cream. It was all very good.
Later on we took a short walk, gave Sophie a bath after her blowout and then watched the latest Batman and Trouble With the Curve (disclaimer again that we have a DVD player to filter out profanity and objectionable scenes). I really enjoyed the latter, even though there was a lot of silence due to the potty mouth of the crotchety old character Clint Eastwood plays.
So I'll wrap you up with some updated Sophie photos. Christmas Day was warm and all her Christmas outfits are long sleeved, so she didn't end up in them on Christmas :( But she wore plenty in the days leading up to it.
