I can’t believe Christmas has come and gone. It has been a blast watching the excitement of Alayna since she was fully aware of what was going on. She asked for a tree in her room this year, so we decorated the most girly tree which was a lot of fun. We also found a fun advent calendar that teaches the true Christmas story and had been doing our elf. Every morning, Alayna woke up and immediately searched for Nora (our elf). Then she would try to drag us out of bed to see what the elf did… mind you, she is up at 6:30 every morning! Jaxon just laughed every time he saw her. One morning he decided it would be fun to drag poor Nora by her legs down the hall. Needless to say, Alayna was very upset so we had to write a letter to Santa explaining that Jax is still a baby and doesn’t really understand that we can’t touch her. She also asked that Santa bring her “two big things” a trampoline and a car.
We did decidedto get them a trampoline for Christmas. It was something we had already decided on before she started asking for it so I knew they would love it… well Alayna would love it and Jaxon would be terrified!!
We spent Christmas morning opening presents at our house where my mom and Gpa joined us, then spent the afternoon at my moms, playing pie face and Uno moo, then we headed to Geoffs family’s for dinner.
The next day, we decided to head up to the snow for a couple hours. The kids absolutely LOVED it!! We had a sled that we all took turns taking the kids on. The weather was beautiful and the snow was so fluffy and powdery! It was a great time!
I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and will have an amazing new year!! I am truly blessed to have this amazing family!
