We Wish You A Merry Christmas

Standard

Holy moly! Can I just say THANK GOODNESS Christmas is over?! My husband and I have had three days of Christmas (Christmases?) every year since we got together (3 years now). We have too much family! Actually, HE has too much family. Anyway, back to the updates…

The first weekend of the month, my husband and I went to his Christmas party for the National Guard. The only bad thing was it took us an hour to get there when it should’ve only taken half an hour at most. However, we had a pretty good time this year. The food was really good, the decorations were beautiful, and I actually looked nice. Some of the dresses girls my age wear should be outlawed and the girls wearing them should be arrested for public indecency! The fact that the fabric goes an inch past the bottom of your butt should be a sign that that’s a top, not a dress. Stupid.

The second weekend of the month, we had a family Christmas party to attend with people I didn’t think I knew. When we got there, I found out I’d seen a lot of the people around, I just had no clue they were related to my husband.

Christmas Eve, we had dinner at my husband’s grandma’s house and had AMAZING food. I think it’s a grandma’s job to cook fantastic food. We found out quickly that Little Man takes FOREVER to open a present. He would rather sit and stare at the tiny piece of paper in his hand than see what is wrapped in the paper, so I had to keep taking the pieces out of his hand and telling him to get a new one. He got lots of clothes and some toys.

Note the studious face.

Christmas Day, we went to another family member’s house and had more great food. Little Man opened more presents and got to have his first piece of pie, which resulted to his first bath in an actual bathtub (we have a plastic baby bathtub that we still use for him). He got a coat, a pair of boots, some clothes, some toys, and some books.

I don't think he knew what happened.

All in all, it was a pretty great first Christmas for Little Man. He wasn’t too excited about what he got this year but I’m sure he won’t be able to hide his excitement next year.

(Sorry this post took so long for me to complete. I think I might’ve accidentally forgotten about it.)

Happy November everyone! It’s already a crazy month and it just started! My mom (who lives in Tennessee) and my best friend (who lives in South Carolina) both told me they had snow today! That’s NUTS!

Anywho, we had a busy Saturday today! First, we stopped by Walmart and hit up their 50% off candy sale.

No, it's not his. We gave it to him to play with while we shopped.

Then we took the baby to one of his grandma’s houses.

Apparently exploring Grandma's makes him thirsty. He can hold his bottle, he's just lazy.

Then we went to my cousin’s daughter’s (she’d be Little Man’s third cousin or something like that) first birthday party, where he met the newest baby of the family.

They were "talking" to each other for about 20 minutes!

I'm not sure if he's confused or pooping...

After we left the party, we stopped by my aunt’s to pick up some stuff.

Partying wears them out.

When we got home, the baby went right to bed without crying. He must not have napped enough. Then, I came to tell all of you about our day. How was your first day of November? Let me know in the comments below! See you soon!
