Rockstar Baby's First Christmas
It didn't snow, the weather was a warm 55+ degrees in December, and Christmas 2006 went well as it usually does. I sent out our usual Christmas cards and packages on time (I usually aim to mail them out between December 12-15th so they don't get there too early or too late). Bought and wrapped presents for people early (usually just for our families and a few friends), and avoided crowded shopping malls. Each year, I try to take the stress out of the holidays by not making it a big 'to-do' and as they say, just keeping it real. Natch. So even though I want to be that person who bakes Christmas cookies and makes homemade cards, I realize my limits. We also bought a smaller tree --a 3 foot tabletop one so that rockstar baby won't be able to get his hands on it. But other than the tree, lights, and a few stockings, we didn't decorate our house that much.
Rockstar baby's first Christmas was enjoyable and I think he had a lot of fun even though he didn't quite understand the concept of the whole thing yet.
We spent Christmas Eve with my side of the family, and then Christmas Day with the hubs' side of the family. Of course, there was a lot of eating going on, a lot of presents, and good company. Rockstar baby definitely got the most presents --including a little red piano, a rocking horse, a cool walker, a play tent, and tons of other stuff! He also had the most fun ripping wrapping paper and playing with the empty boxes. He definitely enjoyed the small stuff =).
