This year we stayed close to home while celebrating Christmas. We checked out the local church’s nativity walk through just like we have every year since Leah was a babe. (I forgot my camera.) Instead of venturing into the big city, we checked the newspaper for some local houses that had impressive light displays.

The pictures don’t do their displays justice at all. It was fun to walk around and see all the lights and other additions to their front yards. Look how small Leah is compared to the big castle.

We had Christmas eve with my family at our house this year. It was busy but turned out very well. Leah received this sweater and decided she wanted to wear it the rest of the night. She enjoyed giving out the presents as well as opening up hers.

On Christmas day we left her present from us under the tree as she was still so excited about her other gifts. It was funny to watch her play. She would start with one toy and play for a few minutes and then look up and notice another new toy and would repeat the same scenario over a few times while cycling through her new toys. She loves this suitcase and asked to go bed with it. She specifically wanted it to lay on top of her bum as she was laying down so that is how she fell asleep on Christmas eve night.

On Christmas morning we made waffles with whipped cream for brunch. Leah loves to help in the kitchen. On Christmas day we visited Morgan’s mom’s house. Leah likes to listen and watch their Christmas music boxes.

After Leah woke up from her nap on Boxing day, we showed her the lone present under the tree. Today, the day after Boxing day, we had a nice and quiet day cleaning the house and getting back into our normal routine.

    Ah routine. Nice to get back to it, isn’t it?
