I'll give you the rundown with photos. Can you guess how many I've taken since Thursday? If you guessed 153 you would be correct!
On Thursday everyone was here and we decided to go to the mall to take pictures THE DAY BEFORE CHRISTMAS EVE with my whole family. Yeah, hubby had to park about a mile from any mall entrance and it was packed! We all got traumatized when the photographer made us take some creepy incest pictures with my siblings and I laying on top of each other even though we are ALL grown ups. Eew.
After that we headed down to the Plaza in Kansas City where we had a lovely family meal at Buca di Beppo. I hit the sauce a little. Yes I did.
The babies were brutally exhausted from all the different places that they went in the day and ended up passing out cold. The babies then got super excited that they were in their own home with no one touching them so they stayed up late.
The next morning they got dressed in their pretties for Christmas Eve. We went to my Grandparents for most of the time and then to hubby's Grandma's for a short time and then back to my Grandparents, whew.
It was then time to get dressed in our special Christmas jammies. I figured this first Christmas the babies wouldn't really know what was happening.
I was wrong. They got energized and excited and tore into everything. Ocean's favorite was a tool bench and Ever's favorite was a pillow pet. They were so cute.We went home to prepare for Santa. Ocean was obviously very excited because he decided to stay up until 11:30 which is 3 hours past night night time. Santa came while Ocean was still awake and it was weird because Santa looked kinda like Mommy.
Ocean did not have his special Christmas jammies on like Ever for Santa morning because he took a big pee all over it on Christmas Eve. Such is the life with a baby boy. Santa is sexist because Ever got a baby carriage and Oshy got a basketball hoop.
We packed up and headed back to my grandparents where the babies utilized their new hardcore crawling skills to get into everything.
We said goodbye to my family and I cried. (I also told myself to get a haircut ASAP)
I ate so much that I thought my underwear might explode off my body. Now we are all tired and fat and will have to get back on schedule. But we'll do that tomorrow.
