Christmas Week!

It's been a busy month for us, which might mean we haven't been able to fully enjoy the Christmas season, but that doesn't mean we aren't so excited for the weekend ahead!  While Ellie doesn't fully understand what's going on, I know for sure that she will be excited to see all of her new toys on Christmas morning and really can't even wait.  I am starting to wonder if she or I will wake up first to see if Santa came! That is, if we ever finish putting her play kitchen together in time to even get to sleep. ;)

We're also excited to spend time visiting family, especially those who we haven't gotten to see in awhile.  We're so happy to be back home and get to see everyone more often, but there's definitely something special about getting to share the magic of Ellie's Christmas with everyone we love! The thought of having another baby at this time next year is kind of crazy and super exciting!  We've already been talking about how fun it will be and all of the things we plan to do as a family of FOUR! :)

The past week has been spent saying goodbye to our old house and getting settled in here, which has been a much easier transition than I anticipated.  I assumed Ellie might need some time to adjust, mainly having trouble sleeping in a new house, but she has been doing really well.  She loves having her grandparents here and I'm sure she will be looking for them when they move out - luckily they will be just a few minutes away! ;)  I also wasn't sure if she would wonder why we haven't gone back to our old house.  I mean, I know she's only a year and a half old, but she doesn't seem phased by the move at all which is awesome and definitely a relief.  Also, all of our cats have been getting along much better than we imagined they would.  It's a little bit of a zoo, but there's definitely always at least one fur babe around to cuddle with if you're looking for them! ;)

I used to think holidays could only be fun if you were a kid, but I'm honestly not sure if I remember ever being this excited for Christmas morning to come!  I know that these years of having little kid(s) who really believe in the magic of the season will go by way faster than I'd like. Christmas will be over for another year in the blink of an eye, which always makes me a little bit sad so we will be soaking it up as best we can.  

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas + happiest everything from our family to yours! XO
