Christmas 2019.

The first snowfall!  After school we changed into our snow gear and played in the snow!  We made snow angels and snow balls!
We made gifts for Hadleys teachers at school.  She had so much fun putting the things together with me.  
Cookies with my Mama!  Hadley loves to bake, and she has the mixer down pat.
The trip to see Santa!  We have gone to this Santa since Hadley was a newborn.  He is the best!
We celebrated our Christmas with the kids on Christmas Eve morning.  The night before Christmas Eve, Hadley put out some reindeer food for the reindeer's! 
Christmas Eve morning, Snitch our elf left the kids a goodbye letter.
Hadley woke up around 7:30am, and we headed downstairs to open gifts!  Even George got a bone that he thoroughly enjoyed the entire time we were opening presents.
After we opened presents, we made a giant Christmas breakfast!  Eggs, goetta, sausage, bacon, eggs, cinnamon rolls, biscuits, donuts, and orange juice in our Christmas mugs.  So delicious!  The last two years I've made these little Christmas figures out of our faces and placed them in our breakfast plates.  
After we were done with breakfast, we all got ready and headed over to my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's house to celebrate with my in-laws.  Hadley wanted to wear her unicorn pajama onesie she got from Santa, so she was super comfy.  Was so good to see family and hangout.  One of Hadleys gifts was a child's weighted blanket that came with a matching unicorn.
Christmas Day morning, we headed to my parents to celebrate with my brother and his family.  My sweet nephew Ari in his glasses, so darn cute!  Our traditional Christmas drink is White Russians, delicious, it's almost like drinking a dessert.  Hadley and Kaiden checking out Grandma's new calendar full of photos of everyone.  And then Hadley and Kaiden patiently waiting on the couch for their big gift from Grandma and Grandad!
The big gift was a kitchen!  Hadley loves to play kitchen.  My parents have my old kitchen we had when my brother and I were little, and she begs to play with it in the basement every time we come over.  She was so excited she has her own now!  As soon as we got home, Daddy put it together and we played a little before bed.

We had a great Christmas!  Seeing both sides of the family, and spending time with them is always a good time.  My favorite thing is to watch the Christmas season through Hadleys eyes.  She has the best excitement and is always such a joy.

Christmas 2019 is in the books!  Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!
