Christmas is over. All the presents have been unwrapped. My house is back to normal (but dirty still since I haven't cleaned yet.) And we're all exhausted. But we also have full hearts. And made lots of memories. So overall - Christmas 201 was a total SUCCESS!
We spent Christmas Eve at Matt's aunt & uncle's house. We left there shortly before C's bedtime and got home in time to leave Santa some cookies and the reindeer some carrots, opened up a couple gifts (2 new Christmas books), read the new books, and tucked the little guy in before getting to play Santa. I was SO excited.
We woke Camden up at 7:30 and he was so excited that Santa came!! He loved that Santa ate his cookies and milk and that the reindeer ate all their carrots. Santa even left Camden a note!! He had fun opening up his presents - though his favorite gifts were Dollar Tree gel window clings and a Superman figurine - oh to be 2!! After opening our gifts we got ready and headed down to my parents and got there shortly around 11:15. We opened presents - put the boys down for a nap - and then had our family dinner. We headed out and got to Matt's parents' house around 7:45/8. We let Camden stay up a few minutes to say hello to everyone and off to bed he went (though it was quite the struggle to get him to sleep!!) On Monday we spent the day at my in-laws - opening presents, hanging out, snuggling, and just being together. It was a really great day, even though I wasn't feeling 100% since I was so exhausted. We enjoyed a great meal together and left to head home around C's bedtime. He was fast asleep by 7:30 that night and slept until 7:30 the next morning!! Tuesday morning Matt worked out and I got a long run in - then Camden napped for 2 and a half hours - and once he was up we headed back down to my in-laws to celebrate Christmas with Matt's dad's family. Wednesday Matt had to coach the 5:15am class - so he did that and then worked out and got his car inspected. Camden and I slept in until 7:40 (well I was awake at 6 but just laid in bed playing on my phone!) We spent the morning taking our Christmas decorations down, playing, organizing, and just relaxing. It was awesome!!!!!!! Camden took over a 3 hour nap yesterday so I was able to hit up the gym, Target, and get to the post office and still had time once I got home to lay on the couch with Matt for a good 20 minutes!! We spent the rest of the day just hanging out together, cooking a delicious meal together, and relaxing & enjoying the time together. I'm back to work today...Matt is actually at work as well...and Camden is at daycare playing with his friends. Already looking forward to another long weekend <3
