This is my Christmas post. Better late than never, right? I wanted to wait until after we shared our exciting news about Lil D until doing this post because so much of Christmas this year involved "baby" things.

My MIL, Kim, her boyfriend, Paul and my BIL, Andy came to Green Grandma's house for the day. Here is everyone in the living room post dinner/pre presents. We were all in a food coma from eating so much.
BIL, Andy, got a Wii.
Our Christmas Tree this year.
Me opening gifts.
Wayne and I also opened our stockings and we each pulled out these:
It was one of the first times thus far where it really hit me, that this is real and happening. I know that there will be many more times like these, but it was a very profound feeling.
My puppies were also especially snuggly that day:

I met Wayne at my parents in the afternoon after he got done with work. After we at dinner and opened gifts, we started a heated game of dominoes.
There were many laughs and inside jokes made. I was so proud of my Dad. He got these on his own:
We spent the night and got up that next morning and went to get the baby furniture that I blogged about HERE. Overall it was a wonderful Christmas!!

We got together with Wayne's other part of his family that couldn't make it on Christmas Eve. I made spaghetti, we opened gifts and then hung out and chatted.

And this was our silly shot.
This is how I usually feel around Christmas...bring on the wine.
But this year was different as I can't have any for obvious reasons and although sometimes I really crave a glass of wine and it irritates me, I'm OK with that because I know what I am going through and the things I am giving up do not compare to the moment(s) of being a MOM.
