Christmas Week 2014

Christmas 2014 was, hands down, the best Christmas ever. We didn't go crazy with gifts. We had one get together on Christmas Eve Eve and even made it through a major cold/cough with Cam.

Here's our Christmas week in a nutshell:

Monday started off with a little craft project/last-minute Christmas gift excursion. I almost threw these out because I thought they were a disaster until Cameron said, "Those are butiful, Mommy." Ok, win! And the recipients loved them as much as him.

We added a little "Merry Christmas" at the top and "<3 Cameron 2015" on the bottom...boom. 

And, in case you missed it, Monday ended with us finding out we are welcoming a little GIRL to our family in May!!

Tuesday, we spent most of the day prepping for dinner...a little Whole Foods run, a little Target run, some prime rib, lasagna and meatballs cooked and lots of Christmas decorations put up last minute.

Wednesday, Cam and I went to see a special showing of Polar Express then spent the rest of the day cuddling as he battled a cold. (Have you taken your little one to the movies yet? Cameron thought it was about the coolest thing ever even though his little legs and toosh kept getting folded up in the chair!!)

Christmas Eve started with everyone in their own beds, but we woke up on Christmas morning to a slumber party in the living room...good thing we didn't have anything major to put together! 

We saved the big present for when we move in a few weeks...
we will have Christmas all over again!

Christmas morning was just as magical as I thought it would be...Cam was so excited top open presents - his or anyone else's! Whenever anyone stopped by, he would meet them at the door with their present and ask if he could open it. Luckily, he's a cutie, so everyone obliged. ;) Since we all felt pretty crummy, we stayed in our pajamas for most of the day except to go to my Dad's for of the best decisions ever!

The rest of the week was spent resting and getting healthy, cleaning a bit and a major trip to IKEA. The house is so close to being done, so we had to pick up a few last minute pieces. Hopefully I will get some pictures today or tomorrow to post! I am so freaking excited to share our final space with everyone...we've put so much time and thought into every detail...renovating is FUN but I am ready to be done. :) 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. From what I've read and seen so far, Christmas 2014 was one for the books!!
