Merry Eve of Christmas Eve
For us Christmas starts tonight! Because we spend Christmas Eve with Ryan's family, we go to a Christmas Eve service at church on the 23rd every year. It might seem a bit unconventional, but once you're used to it, it's actually kind of awesome that Christmas starts a day early for us.
The next 3 days will be filled with family, gifts and food. And I'm so looking forward to it!
This is Parker's first Christmas, but I'm sure he will have more fun with the bows than anything that he actually unwraps. The weird thing for me this year is that although our days will be full of things we don't usually do, we have to keep some sort of routine for Parker. The baby still needs to eat, and nurse and nap! He won't care that it's Christmas. So that aspect will definitely be interesting.
I'm looking forward to our first Christmas as a family of three though. Christmas as a child is so magical and so it will be amazing to bring that part of Christmas back to our family.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas and hope you make the most of this time with your families.
