This Christmas was very special, seeing as it was Peanut’s very first one. She even woke up earlier than usual in anticipation, I’m sure, of opening her gifts!
We spent a relaxing morning opening gifts and eating a late breakfast. Peanut received a doll baby from her great-grandparents and a rattle, book and homemade quilt from Daddy C and Mommy C. The week before, she visited our extended family and received tons of gifts then as well- meaning her toy bin is officially overflowing! But this just means more for her to throw, which she is really enjoying right now!
After breakfast, we lounged around and watched It’s a Wonderful Life (afterwards, I discovered this was to be the last video ever played in our VCR, as it had eaten up the tape! Such is the bane of modern technology.). We ended the day with a delicious dinner of homemade noodles, grilled chicken, peas, corn and baked potatoes!
This weekend, we will be visiting more family, but will have to travel by plane to get there. It will be Peanut’s first plane ride! Mommy C doesn’t know whether to be excited, nervous, worried or terrified of the prospect of traveling in air with a 6-month old teething baby, but she guesses she’ll soon find out!
