Simply Having a Wonderful Christmas Time

Christmas is over, the tree is down, and we are back to work. We had a wonderful Christmas with my family and Andrew's parents came down to the 'Boro to spend it with us. We are doing Christmas again on New Year's Day when Andrew's brother and his wife come in. I am not complaining....we get to eat a Christmas dinner again. It is so nice having a mother and mother-in-law that like to cook.

I always get clothing for Christmas from my parents, but this year it was a little different. These all had room for an extra large belly! I ended up exchanging a few things and picked up a belly band for the time being. They make a few of my pants more know, just out of the dryer, eck! I am not sure when I will actually need maternity clothing, so I have picked up/ordered a few pieces so that when the morning comes that nothing fits right, I have something comfortable to wear. I ordered a pair of jeans from ON and I hope they are as nice as the picture b/c the ones I have seen in person are bad. I may end up in skirts/dresses the majority of the time.

Baby got a few gifts also. Mommy and Daddy got baby a lamb floor blanket. Grandma and Grandpa Snyder got baby a cute animal themed onsie and a little stuffed monkey that matches almost perfectly the nursery set I am leaning towards. Great Grandma got baby a ducky onsie with a hat and socks and a little ducky to go with it. Grandma and Grandpa Coleman just got back from Disney and brought baby a stuffed Eore, bib, and a Micky sippy cup. What a lucky baby to have so many people that love it already!

I finally have some pictures to post for you from when we told the soon-to-be grandparents. The cookies are from when we told Andrew's parents. We met them for lunch so I brought dessert. The last two pictures are on the cruise at dinner the first night. I told my parents I forget I had a picture to give them. I brought my first ultrasound photo.


  1. Glad you had a Merry Christmas! Hold off on the maternity clothes as long as possible. They are so comfy and tempting, but by the end you will be SO sick of them!

  2. I think I had to wear my first pair of maternity pants (jeans from Target) arond 16 wks. So watch out, you are almost there!! :) Love the cookies & reactions pics btw. Hope you're still feeling good. Is the fatigue gone yet?

  3. Your mom's face is great! I love it!
