Christmas Recap

This past month has flown by and I can't believe it's almost a new year.  This Christmas was a little crazy and didn't quite go as planned but we still managed to have a good time and celebrate with family.  Henry got sick early in the week and it was determined he had the flu.  We spent the next couple of days trying to keep him and Charlie separated.  We usually spend Christmas Eve at Ryan's parents house but opted out this year since there would be so many kids there and he was still contagious.  We had a nice relaxing day at home full of long naps for all which was great.  The weather was really nice and we were able to spend some time outside.  I think it's safe to say that even though Henry was still contagious that he was feeling much better at this point from his meds :)




Henry woke up bright and early Christmas morning and it was so fun to see him come down and see what Santa brought him.  He was definitely more interested in the leaf blower than his bike but we're hoping he'll be ready to ride that this coming spring/summer.





After opening presents we got dressed and headed over to my parents house for brunch and more presents.
 


Charlie slept through all the excitement :)



Some of us spent the afternoon golfing, napping, playing with toys, cooking and holding a crying baby.  Charlie had a couple of fits and we're still trying to work out his tummy issues.  We ended up actually switching him to soy formula that afternoon as we were desperate to give him and us some relief.  We're still working through it all but hope that this will help him and we can all get some rest again!




While things were a little different this year and not everything went as planned, we still had a great Christmas and are thankful that we have been able to celebrate with both sides of the family.

Wishing everyone a happy new year!

  1. Jack has that blower! He was OBSESSED with the accompanying goggles ... like, wore them EVERYWHERE and took them with him to daycare!

    Looks like Christmas was fun, but chaotic, much like ours :)
