Josh had to work both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, (boo) so we got our Christmas celebrations done on Wednesday. Nellie got a lot of great things and looked adorable in her dress (which I had to take off pretty early in the afternoon. She couldn’t crawl around in it, heh heh). We had Christmas with just the three of us first..
Then later in the day, we headed to Gran and Pop’s for a family get-together.
It’s not a holiday until someone cries.
I think that Nellie was most excited about the gigantic stuffed monkey that her Uncle Tim gave her, whom we’ve named Dr. Zeus. She got a lot of great stuff, and promptly passed out when we got her home. I got some amazing news at work + a little bonus check, so Josh and I treated ourselves to a long-overdue new TV. There’s a story behind the TV, too and it’s pretty epic so stay tuned for that.
Now, on Christmas Day, I’m sitting typing this while my baby girl naps. She has a chest cold and is really congested. We had a rough night with her sleeping on my chest for the most of it, and when we woke up?
Snow. In Chattanooga, Tennessee. This never happens, and from what I hear from people who have lived here a long time, it hasn’t snowed on Christmas Day in 20 or so years. I’m staying warm and cozy inside with Nellie, missing Josh and the rest of my family. Nellie’s first Christmas is a White Christmas, which is pretty special, I think. I’ll be posting pictures later!
So, Merry Christmas from my family, to yours. Soon we will say goodbye to 2010, and hello to 2011.
