A Very Merry Christmas With Friends & Family!

We began our Christmas festivities on Sunday evening, heading to my best friend Suzanne's house to join her family and Leila's family...a new tradition now that we all three have kids! We had dinner, desert, and presents...good times!

Christmas morning we put together Lyra's toys and watched her play, then while she napped we did a little cooking to prepare for Christmas dinner and watched one of my favorite Christmas movies, Home Alone.

Christmas afternoon we traveled north to The Woodlands to visit Aaron's cousin's family. The weather was gorgeous when we arrived and when leaving it dropped 40 degrees...that's Texas for ya!

By the time we got home Lyra was knocked out and I got to enjoy my other favorite Christmas movie Home Alone 2! It's just not Christmas with out

Aside from not being able to decorate, Christmas was great this year and with Lyra, it really added a whole new meaning. I can't wait to see how different she is next year when she is really excited about her gifts and it will be even better with a second baby! Hard to believe she is almost one year old and I'm already trying to plan her 1st birthday.

Lots of pictures to enjoy below...
