Greg and I did not get to sleep until the early morning hours of Christmas Day. I think we were more excited than Victoria!
We spend Christmas Day at my mom’s house. Victoria was up and ready to go by 7am, just like any other day for her. Greg insisted that we continue with a family tradition from his childhood, opening Christmas stockings in bed. Grammy brought V into us half awake and confused, we barely had our eyes open, I will spare you those photos, they are less than flattering, but at least we have the tradition documented. (and some black mail photos…ha!)
Greg took a video of V as she walked into the room with all of the gifts from Santa (please note that not ALL of those gifts are for her!). Her reaction was priceless, so many oooos, and aaaahhhhs, she went straight over to the basketball hoop. She proceeded to play basketball for what seemed like hours. And this is how our Christmas day went, Victoria wanted to play with every toy she opened, which lead to her opening 3 gifts the day after Christmas because after opening a few gifts, she had no interest in opening anymore.
I helped Greg make breakfast after we opened gifts. We enjoyed watching the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade, and we made the comment we make every year “I wanna go there for Christmas some year!” Going to a magical place that is even more magical on Christmas day, sounds like a plan to me! (some day)
We spent most of day relaxing, expect for Grammy, she was busy in the kitchen making her Christmas Day turkey dinner. My dad came over early afternoon and ate with us. I tried to soaked up every memory of Christmas at my mom’s since this one would be our last. It was a great day with family!
Christmas night, Aunt Jodie and Uncle Ben come over and we exchange gifts with them. It was so nice to see them twice this month, at Sesame Place earlier in the month and in Rochester for Christmas.
