Christmas-Filled Weekend

It's only December 19th but I've already had 2 Christmas celebrations this year! I've said it, but I'll say it again... where is time going!? It's all I can do to hold on and embrace this holiday season. I'm looking forward to this short work week (for Jared) and lots of celebrating this weekend with both sides of my family. And then? Oh, I hope for some serious downtime and rest going into the new year. I need a fresh start for sure and I'm already excited for the new year.

Friday night Jared and I snuck away for a third time since T's been born. I get so anxious leaving him even though I know everything will be fine. Jared makes fun of me for not wanting to leave him, especially since every time we've left we've put him to bed for the night already... but it's hard! The time with Jared is always so wonderful once we're out, so I'm working on getting better about scheduling some date nights in the future. We went to Awaited, the Christmas production we see every year at a local church. We met up with Jared's cousin and her boyfriend and enjoyed a festive evening together. I think this is our 8th year seeing this play!


Saturday Jared and I both took turns doing some last minute shopping for each other and running a few errands. Somehow, no matter how much I plan, I end up out and about the Saturday before Christmas and holy moly, I DON'T KNOW WHY!? Way too many people, too much traffic and too much chaos for my liking. But I got the last of things I needed for Jared's stocking and I think I'm all set now. That night we watched yet another Christmas movie while we wrapped gifts.

And yesterday wrapped up with family Christmas at my in-laws house. I ate entirely too much peanut butter fudge and I'm not even ashamed about that. We exchanged gifts and I got some super fun stuff I'm pretty excited about- including new sheets. These are the things that we ask for at 30, right?! ;) T was a trooper, even though he's still teething like crazy (Can we pleeeease get a tooth or two by Christmas?!) and didn't nap like normal. I love my little family so much!

  1. Don't feel bad, I'm going shopping with my mom today so she can finish up & my dad tomorrow so he can finish up. Somehow a few years ago I wound up being mediator between the two so that they don't wind up outdoing the other one ha. Glad that you & Jared got a date night. I can only imagine how it feels leaving your baby with someone else the first few times. Fingers crossed he get a couple of teeth for Christmas!

  2. Its okay to be excited about sheets because I think that means we're adults! This year it was hard thinking of stuff for me but more so stuff for the house, ha!

  4. What a cutie T. is! I asked for a muffin tin for Christmas so I guess these ARE the things we get into at 30. Either that or I seriously need to get a hobby. Ha ha!

  9. Talk about a busy weekend! We managed to not have to make it to the mall this year, but we did see a lot of the traffic. At least you're mostly done shopping for now!
