What a great Christmas! Today was back to work for Andrew and a work from home day for me while Munchie played at my mom's. We're home the rest of the week (though I expect I will squeeze in some work time when I can). We still have lots to do before my official vacation ends on January 2nd and my slow month of work ends. January through May will be busy, but I know I will continue to search for some balance between home and work. We've had two sleepovers with the Krieger boys (Josh is here playing video games right now and I'm not needed so long as Andrew is playing Mario with him!), lots of time with family, two parties, a visit with some friends, and a quiet New Year's Eve game night here with the Kriegers. I feel so lucky with my life and so blessed to have the wonderful people that surround me each day.
Here are some Christmas pictures!
Proud of her pigtails that Aunt Amie ("Maimy") made for her.
A cousin's Christmas! Max, Isabella, and Maggie on Christmas Eve
Can anyone say it's time for gymnastics class? She taught herself how to do sommersaults!
Christmas morning--Her new sleep mat with attached pillow to take to school. She loves it! She's sleeping with it now in her crib. Speaking of cribs, her Nana bought her a new bed! We're going to begin transitioning very soon. My baby is growing up!
Snow White and her Snow White doll
When Ga Ga comes with a wagon, you know she bought a lot of presents? Crazy thing? This was only half. She left the other half at her house to open after dinner Christmas day.
Opening more presents at Ga Ga's house. The bows? Red sparkle bows to match her new red "sparkle shoes." She also has them in hot pink, but I hate when she wears them with her school uniform.
Cinderella! Or, as her principal at school likes to call her--Magerella! She loves this costume because it reminds her of Tracey's daughter "Pincess Lucy." As soon as she put it on, she started giggling and saying, "Mama, I Lucy!!"
My family--Maggie, me, my mom Sharon, my brother Jeremy, and my "Mom Mom" Sarah
Maggie's biggest fans--Mama and Ga Ga!
Hope you all have a wonderful holiday, no matter what you celebrate. I know we sure did! Aren't the holidays way more fun with kids?
