Merry Christmas Eve!

Monday, December 24, 2012

They say holidays are more fun with kids and they are right! This holiday season has been SO much more fun now that we have Mason. I loved the holidays to begin with but to see his little face light up with happiness and wonder and discovery is even more amazing. Christmas Eve started off with just Mason and mommy since daddy had to work. I never thought I wold see the day that I had a day off that Seth didn't but today it happened! Since Seth works for the government, he gets almost every holiday ever off, but apparently today is not a real holiday... or so the county thinks... but my work does :)

This is what I walked in on this morning :

That tush is so cute normally, but with Santa added, I love it even more!

After Mason woke up, we played, he slept, we ate, and mommy made cookies for Christmas dessert. I try to be so prepared for Christmas and every year I have a goal of being done early, TOTALLY done, and then just when I think I have finally succeeded... last minute craziness! I forgot this person's gift or that person or I didn't want to buy something toooo early and then totally procrastinated. Next year...

Speaking of procrastinating... there are always SO many things I want to do during Christmas that I never have time for. (Next year we start earlier... or so I always say!)

The first weekend in December was Mason's 4 month pictures and Seth working at the swap meet. The next weekend was going to see Santa and celebrating Hanukkah with the family. The next weekend my dad, step-mom and brother were here. And now it's this weekend... and Christmas! So this weekend we tried to cram in as much as we could. Friday night we went to see Disney on Ice. Saturday night we went to the Newport Beach Boat Parade. Sunday night we went to see Christmas lights around the neighborhood. And tonight we celebrated Christmas Eve!
