I thought I'd share a little look at how we spent our holiday week. After Daniel got off work Wednesday we ventured out to a house we kept hearing about to look at Christmas lights. The Stewart family goes all in when it comes to Christmas decorations--oh man! They had tons of lights, inflatables, a popcorn cart and a train we got to ride! Edie loved it.
Our little family of three spent Christmas Eve and Christmas morning at home. We went to church for the candlelight service, wrapped gifts, and cooked up a yummy steak dinner, and in the morning we watched Edie enjoy what Santa left her and got out of town wayyy later than we had planned because toddlers call the shots and there is definitely a learning curve to traveling with one. We spent the rest of the weekend relaxing in Tulsa with family as it rained and rained and rained, and last night we returned home to a flooded neighborhood. Thankfully the water didn't reach our house (we were concerned--the yards were under) and it has slowed down a lot this morning. Does anyone else just feel totally off after a trip? I'm sitting here on my couch trying to remember what we even do on a normal day. I need a vacation from the vacation or something.
Edie changed during the trip, too--she learned lots of new words! Girl regularly started saying "tractor," "turkey," "bear," "joge" (George--Curious George), "hat," "bye," and "Mag" (Maggie, my brother's dog). She's learning so much every day, it's crazy!
I hope you had the merriest Christmas!
