Merry Christmas Everyone! (a day late)
I hope you all enjoyed this beautiful holiday! I know we did for sure! We did so much in so little time and I loved it! We have 4 sets of parents, all divorced and remarried so we got started with our visits and Christmas celebrations early in order to not miss out!
On Sunday we woke up early, grabbed some Starbuck's for breakfast and got on the road to my mother in laws house. At Starbucks, the cashier had a long line and was getting nervous because I had a giftcard and it didn't seem to go through so she just told me my drink was on the house! Hey that's A-OK with me!
|This was totally a must instagram moment.... David's rolling his eyes while I take a selfie.|
As soon as we got to David's mom's house, I went in the kitchen with his mom and helped with making food for dinner. I made a delicious spicy Italian salad. It came out so good! There were a ton of ingredients in it but it was perfect. For dinner we had Lasagna, salad, bruschetta, and than there were cookies and gelato for desert but I didn't even make it to that. It was so much good food!

Noah didn't eat much. He just wanted to play with this Rudolf the red nose reindeer doll that his grandma had.
|anything that is round and looks like a boob, he'll put in his mouth...ha #lifeofabreastfedbaby|
|Playtime with uncle steven!|
|Love this face!|
We left their house at about 7:30pm. We decided to enjoy the night and drove around town before heading home. We went to Candy Cane lane there in Camarillo. It was so fun!
Its like two blocks of houses just covered in Christmas lights! It looked like Christmas took a dump in the neighborhood! No lie
Than we drove through the hills of Camarillo and I loved how pretty and lit up the city looked.
On Monday, we stayed in. It was a chill day. David had Friday-Wednesday off so lucky me, I've had all the help from him I need! That day we just enjoyed each other's company with nothing to do. We decided to let Noah open one of his presents. We bought him a gym like baby play tent that comes with plastic balls and a little basketball hoop and a mini basketball. He LOVED it! It was a lot bigger than we expected so I opened it up outside on the grass and even I fit in there with him!
|I secretly bought this toy for me. ;) jk|
|My OOTD. I ended up changing into sweats once I found out no one would be home till late.|
Tuesday, we woke up early, got dressed, packed our bags and headed to my mom's house for Christmas eve! We were ready for a fun filled day with family to begin.... So I thought..
We got to her house, rang the door bell, nothing... rang again... nothing. I called her on the phone and just as it was ringing my mom opened the door and yelled "what are you doing here?!" ummmm it's Christmas eve! I guess this year she worked Christmas eve, usually she has it off and its a day full of baking and cooking from early till late at night. But she was only home on a lunch break to put the turkey in the oven.... So we stayed at the house until she got off of work. Since she had to work I decided I'd help, and I baked cookies, brownies, made mashed potatoes and sweet potatoes. I was in the kitchen until she got off of work. By the time she got off, I was exhausted, and Noah finally took his first nap of the day at 5pm with me. I slept for what I thought was a couple hours but David said I only slept for 20 min.... ugh..

So my aunt, her kids, her husband and my grandma came over at 9pm, we ate, we talked we played and at midnight just like we always do, we opened presents.

While I was busy playing with Noah, I didn't realize my little cousin was doing this on my phone....
My mom came into the room to play with the baby before we left.
