Christmas Day recap

Christmas Day went really well. Hunter woke up early and we all laid in bed and watched videos on the iPad until we were ready to make our way downstairs. after getting practice on Christmas Eve he was an old pro at opening gifts. After opening the first gift he wanted to just play with that, we had to talk him into opening the rest. We got him some small trucks and buses and after all the gifts were opened we brought up his "big" gift which was his balance bike. Our neighbors son has one and Hunter is obsessed with it. He got very excited over the bike but is too scared to actually ride, he prefers to just push it around for now.

We had a very lazy morning and ate lunch just the three of us after Hunter got up from his nap. After lunch we headed up to Maryland to see my mom, brother and his fiancee. We all got even more gifts and Hunter had a great time seeing his Nana and Uncle. Once again he passed out in the car on the way home and slept late the next morning. He doesn't even realize that he will be getting even more presents next week for his birthday. Lucky boy!

The day after Christmas we sent Hunter to daycare and I got MY big gift from Kristian. He had given me a few smaller items on Christmas day, some gloves and two pretty necklaces but then gave me a card with money in it and told me that his gift was a day date together which would include a shopping spree for me. He told me that he really wasn't sure what to get me since I didn't tell him anything specific and was afraid he would get me something I wouldn't like. So on Thursday we headed to the mall sans child and I got a bit spoiled. He bought me two new pairs of shoes, a gold watch and a new Coach purse! I think he likes me :) We then went out for a nice long lunch together. Just spending the day together was really one of the best gifts in itself. 

We got this purse for 50% off!! Gotta love post Christmas sales!

I've always loved Christmas but having a little one to celebrate with makes it so much more fun. I was so much more excited to see him open his gifts than to open my own. I was also really excited for Kristian to open his gifts since I got him some pretty good ones this year. I got him a few shirts and a food saver (so he can vacuum seal all the deer meat he gets and freeze it) and also a remote control helicopter (which he wanted) and a Chromecast which allows you to watch whatever you have on your phone or iPad on the t.v. It basically turns your phone into a remote control, so now we can stream Netflix or Youtube from the phone to the t.v. The best part was that we saw this advertised on t.v. (after I had already bought it for him) and he was like "that's so cool, we should get one" So he was so excited to see I had actually gotten him one. He LOVES it! Oh and that $5 stocking stuffer I got him that I knew he would was the Katy Perry movie/documentary on DVD. He loves Katy Perry, she's his "free pass".

That sounds like a perfect Christmas! I swear kids that age would be happy with one present for the whole day, but it's way more fun for the parents to get lots!
