Christmas 2015

Thursday, May 19, 2016
So this past Christmas was Colette's first. And I have yet to write anything about it. Like everyone else, it is such a crazy time of year for us, and the day after Christmas, I jumped right into party planning mode for Cullen's third birthday. Mom fail and second child problems. So here goes. Its May and I'm going to share at least some pictures from our Christmas.

Cullen was a huge help in decorating the tree this year. He put most of the ornaments on and only moved one or two afterwards; he had near perfect ornament placement!

Cullen was so excite to wake Colette up for her first Christmas! But we made him wait until she woke up on her own. Then we let him go in to say "Good Morning" before we went downstairs to open gifts.

Their big joint gift from Santa was a play kitchen complete with pots, pans, and lots of food. It was the first thing they both went to and we had to pull them away long enough to open stockings and the other presents.

They did finally open their other gifts. We didn't go crazy with packages this year. In addition to their play kitchen, they each got something they needed (sippy cup for Colette and tennis shoes for Cullen), books to read, clothes to wear, and a couple of smaller toys. It was nice to take our time with each gift and they didn't feel overwhelmed with new toys.

After celebrating with just us, we had family over for lunch. It was a nice and easy Christmas day highlighted by good food, great time with family, and all the joy that comes with watching little ones celebrate and play. 

Maybe next year I won't be so late with this post, but who knows. As I'll share more in a post in the next week or so, we are taking time this year to slow down and enjoy the present, so I'm not going to stress over a late post or two. Merry (very late) Christmas!
