What an exciting Christmas this was!! We started the Christmas season off with our yearly Christmas dinner at Easton with Derek’s parents. We weren’t exactly sure if we could do it this year with Charlie. It’s a 2 hour drive one way for us, and with having a little 6 week old at that point, we were a little skeptic. BUT, she was an absolute angel that night! No cluster feeding and rode like a champ. We had an amazing dinner as usual…this is my favorite thing and I look forward to it every single year! OH, and enjoying some wine didn’t hurt either :)
Family picture before leaving…Charlie's eyes, of course, are on Brutus!
I wasn’t planning on taking Charlie to see Santa this year because she is so little, but after seeing all the pictures with Santa from fellow bloggers, I just thought it was my duty as a Mom to take her to see Santa every year! Of course she had no idea, but it will be fun to look back every year and see these pictures!
I just crack up at this double chin, ha!
Christmas Eve, my Mom came down and we had Christmas at our house. We enjoyed a delicious meal and opened up gifts. Christmas morning, we headed down to Athens for Derek’s family Christmas. Unfortunately, Charlie cluster fed all day on Christmas. SO, the 3 hour trip to Athens was miserable for all 4 of us. She ate allllll day. BUT, she was quite pleasant considering the circumstances.

Overall, the best part of this Christmas was spending time with family. I just love seeing all the love Charlie receives from our family!
Charlotte just loves sleeping on her Grandpa!
Hope you all had a great Christmas!
