Our Christmas…

Cold and sickness happens and it is quite a bummer that it happens around special events and holidays. I did end up getting a cold too and am just finally in the last stages of it. My husband and daughter are down to the last stages too. I’m just glad we are all on the mend before the New Year and before baby Owen makes his arrival.

Christmas was pretty low key, no major cooking, no huge family get together, and no unwanted drama. My family enjoyed their gifts and we did have Melody’s grandparents and aunt on my husbands side visit for a short time.  My daughter is really enjoying the things she got for Christmas which include a Melissa & Doug Doctor Dress Up Set, A Kaleidoscope, & a Magnadoodle from Mommy and Daddy. She received a Melissa & Doug lacing bead set and a couple Lego Duplo Sets ( Postman & Airplane) from my parents along with an adorable multi colored knit hat. Grandma and Papa Lowmaster brought Melody a Farm Lego Duplo Playset, an Oregon Coast Sweatshirt, and to make it’s arrival soon a hand knit sweater which is almost done! Her Aunt Megan brought her a fun play dough set. All fun gifts which I know she’ll enjoy for quite sometime!

My husband gave me kitchen themed gifts which include a set of Russian Doll measuring cups which stack and those silicone non-stick cupcake baking cups, I can’t wait to start using them! I won on all the gifts I gave him too! He got a new work shirt, a wallet, and the Tron Legacy Soundtrack from me.

I am glad Christmas was low key and we didn’t push it too much mainly because we were sick. I was a little bummed to miss Christmas Eve service at church but there’s always next year.

What are some of your favorite gifts and memories  you received and experienced this Christmas?
