Christmas in a Nutshell

This Christmas season seemed very chaotic for some reason. I think it was because I was so preoccupied with getting Landon's room started. I am not going to lie I was actually anxious for Christmas to be over with so we could move on to 2011. Here is a short recap of some of the things we did this holiday season

Earlier in December Annie was playing at Macon Little Theater. I LOVED this movie when I was younger and anxious to share it with the girls. Alyssa and I got tickets to go on a Friday night, just the two of us. I picked her up that evening and we had to make a quick stop to pick up some additional fabric for the baby bedding. After that we went to eat at Stevie B's. We both wanted to try the Candy Cane pizza. I think we decided it was ok but that the Chocolate Pizza is much better. After dinner we headed over to the theater.

Alyssa loved the play just as much as I did. She did want it to stop when it was time for intermission. They had cast some very talented young girls and I think it may have given Alyssa the stage bug! When the play was over all the actors were out front including Sandy, the dog. He, of course, was the one she was most excited to meet.

We had a great time together. I am always amazed at how big she is getting. She was just 6 weeks old when I saw her for the first time and now she is growing into such a wonderful young lady.
The next week is when mom and dad came out. As you have already seen we spent most of our time working on the room. We did also celebrate our Christmas together while they were here. I for some reason have no pictures of this. Mom took most of the pictures this time and she has them all...sorry!

Christmas Eve we went to Heath's Dad's house. It was nice to get to see family. Everyone had so many questions about the baby. I didn't get many pictures that evening but here are a few that I did get.

Here I am with my sisters-in-law Kristi and Holly

Later that evening, after everyone else left, we went to see an amazing light display in Cochran. It was so beautiful...and really COLD! The kids loved it!

Once we left the light display we all headed home and Heath and I had our Christmas with each other. We both talked about how different things are going to be next Christmas and how excited we were for our special little miracle.

Here I am in my Christmas pajamas and I think they serve as the perfect wrapping for my favorite Gift of ALL TIME!!! I was so exhausted I went to bed soon after this picture.

This picture is my favorite of all our Christmas pictures. To see that third stocking hanging there in the middle almost makes me cry when I see it.

Here are the boys checking out what Santa left for them!

Christmas Day we spent with the rest of Heath's family and for some reason I have not one single picture of any of our time together. I think I was still so tired I pretty much just sat back and watched everyone else. Later that night Heath and I watched A Christmas Story. We normally watch it on Christmas Eve but I couldn't keep my eyes open long enough to make it through.

I think this last picture is the perfect way to end this post because it pretty much sums up how I felt about Christmas this year.

I already got what I wanted, now lets move on to next year...

Look 2011...Here we come!
