Holiday Hangover

And not from wine, either! ;)

Christmas day involved having my sister, brother in law, M.'s parents and grandparents over for breakfast and opening of gifts.

We were lucky, as Miss O. didn't wake up too early, because we had a big day ahead of us!
After serving everyone a breakfast of french toast casserole, scrambled eggs, sausage, fruit salad, and cookies, we began opening gifts. Everyone spoiled Miss O. to the max...which I guess is okay, because it's probably the last year for that.

M. spoiled's what I opened Christmas morning.


I'm SO excited to really get a chance to play around with it!

The last present she opened was from M. and I...a "big" sister t-shirt. M. and I designed it, to say "My Christmas present came early this year...." with a present on the front, and then on the back it had TWO presents with babies sticking out of each one. The back read, "I'm going to be a big sister!".

It took everyone a while to "get" it. We actually had to say, "How many presents are on the back?" LOL. Lots of happiness and tears followed.

After we wrapped up the morning, we packed up the car and headed North 2 hours to celebrate with my family. It was a very busy day, but very enjoyable.

Sunday brought yet another family celebration at M.'s grandparents house full of aunts, uncles, and cousins. Fun, but I'm exhausted.

And we still have 1 more left to go.

M.'s brother and his family are coming to town for New Year's and we'll be celebrating Christmas AGAIN.

Did you get anything cool for the holidays?


First OB appointment is tomorrow afternoon...I hope we get another peek at the babies!
