Layla - 212 days old
Well, day 212 was Layla's FIRST Christmas! How fun and exciting! It was definitely an all day process. She got up bright and early at 6:45, by 8 Nana had text to see if we wanted to come over for breakfast, so we did! Biscuits and gravy... YUM! By the end of breakfast Layla apparently decided it was time to take a nap. so we came home and little miss took a nice 2 hour nap. She woke up just in time to get ready and go to church. It was a lovely service and I got to see some friends. Then we came home to wake daddy up and have Layla's Christmas! I got a video and a few pictures of her! She was interested a little in the beginning but then got bored. After Layla Christmas we talked to grandpa and grandma with facetime. They got her one of those books where you read it and record it. So when she reads it she hears Grandpa's voice! She loved it and listened to the whoooole story. Then it was time for her afternoon nap and mommy and daddy's turn for Christmas. Not to mention I had to make food for dinner and Nana's. I got Wayne an espresso maker!! He loved it and completely did not suspect it, which was the best part! So as other gifts he got all the accessories to his big gift. He got white chocolate powder, espresso beans and a grinder. He also got 3 Clint Eastwood movies and Modern Warfare 3. He got a new basting brush in his stocking a magazine, razors, lint roller and candy in his stocking. I got my treadmill of course, this AWESOME zip up underarmour hoodie! I seriously love it! He also got me a Buc blue shirt and the best gift of all.... AN EXTERNAL FLASH!! Seriously, I have the coolest freaking husband! I've been testing it out and WOW! It's awesome! So we waited and waited for Layla to get up... She took over a 2 hour nap!! YAY FOR HER! She always chooses the days we have a lot of things to do to take her good naps. Then we went to Nana and Papa's to eat prime rib dinner! We ate the scrumptiousness then opened presents. Layla got a lot of good things. Lots of pretty clothes and fun toys. I got my much desired cast iron skillet, lots of place mats and a great gift card to pick up something I wanted. It was such a great day and I am SO blessed to have such an amazing family. I hope everyone had as great of a Christmas as I did. And never ever forget the real reason, to celebrate His birth. Night!
