Christmas Eve 2013

Merry Christmas to our readers! Hope you all have a blessed Holiday! 

Our Christmas plans this year are very different from what we are used to. We would normally be at one of our parents houses... Not this year. We decided this year we would be home. With a 8week old (tomorrow) traveling 12+ hours was not a option we wanted to tackle. To be honest I am super excited to be home! Amelia is so into the holiday this year. I know it will be so hard to get her to go to bed tonight. But waking up in our house and it just being the 4 of us will be nice... Making memories.  We will miss being with our families but there is something to be said about new tradtions. I know it will be harder and harder to travel at Christmas . Loading all the gifts and packing for a week to add to the stress. I want the girls to enjoy and have the magic of Christmas  and where we don't have to come up with why Santa knows where they are at. I am sure we will travel again to see family but maybe we will always wake up at home ... Who knows. All I want is a non-stress day and enjoy our little family. 

We have done all the fun activities I wanted to do with Amelia. We went to see Santa, baked cookies, make crafts, had a cookies decorating party with friends, watched Christmas movies, went to look at lights and today we made cookies for Santa and reindeer food! 


We have been busy! I have enjoyed every moment of it... Even though baking with a almost 3 year old can add stress! 
 It doesn't look like Amelia enjoyed her visit with Santa but she did! She told him all about what she wanted for Christmas... Roller skates. Hopefully he brings her knee and elbow pads plus a helmet! 

Here are the girls after church this past Sunday. Amelia went in her classroom and had fun! She said she can't wait to go back... Christmas miracle! 
Tonight we are planning on Christmas Eve  service at church and then hopefully a earlier bed time! Santa's helpers may be up all night assembling toys!  
I can't wait to see Amelia's face tomorrow morning! This year is going to be so much fun!!

Aliza ~ 
You are a bit of a Momma's girl. You like others by as soon as your hear my voice you want fuss. untill I hold you. You are pretty laid back. You'll be wide awake and perfectly happy laying or sitting looking around. Your big sister love you and you love her! You always are trying to look for her when Amelia is talking/screaming/singing! 

At night you get a little more fussy than normal. I think you have gas belly.... Sorry sweetie! Some gas drops and you feel better in no time!
I still can't believe some days we have two sweet girls! We have our hard days but we have more great days than bad. We love you so much! Thankful we get to be your parents!
