Since Christmas and Hanukkah fell at the same time last year, we had a crazy busy holiday weekend. We gave Lucy her gifts from us on Friday morning since we were heading to Joe’s parents’ Friday night and then going to my parents’ on Saturday. Her big gift was a Dora coloring table, which she LOVES!
She had a blast playing all day with all her new toys.
I had to work, but at 5 p.m., we were out the door headed to Joe’s parents’ to celebrate Hanukkah. We always have a great time, and this year was no different — except for the fact that I was still dealing with the effects of my Reclast infusion. I had to miss out on the lighting of the Hanukkah candles because I was too light-headed to stand, but Lucy and Rivka really enjoyed it. They are so much more fun at this age!
Lucy had the best time because she got Let’s Rock Elmo. She is in LOVE! Also, she is his drummer. He’s pretty lucky to have her in his band.
The cupcakes also were a big hit with the kids.
On Saturday, we took our time packing up and headed to Chattanooga mid-afternoon. We had a fun Christmas eve with my siblings, even though my dad wasn’t able to join us. Lucy always has a blast with her cousins. The three of them ran through the doors separating the living room from the hallway for about 20 minutes before we opened presents and 30 minutes afterward. They weren’t loud. They just ran. And ran. And ran. Joe said the adults were trying to keep them quiet when I passed out in bed after presents, but I didn’t hear a thing.
Anyway. All the kids had a blast and got some great gifts.
I showed off Lucy’s new bath book, Barnyard Bath! We are big Boynton fans in our house.
We forgot to take pictures on Christmas Day, but we had a very nice lunch with my family (minus Ryan and his family who were at his in-laws’) and Joe’s parents. Once it was over, though, I took one of my anti-dizziness pills and passed out for the ride home. We had a fun holiday weekend, but here’s hoping everyone is healthy for next year!
