Christmas 2014 /

Happy day after Christmas, friends. You can’t hear me, but I’m letting out the biggest sigh of relief right now. We had an amazing holiday, but this mama is spent. Preparing for Christmas — with a toddler, while you’re six-months pregnant, with a husband who can’t stand or walk on his own — is a lot of work. Between shopping, wrapping, loading & unloading the car (ten million times), and all the rest that goes along with holiday festivities, I don’t think I’ve ever fallen into bed as hard as I did last night!

All of that being said, it was truly a wonderful time. Roman has been so excited over all things “Christmas” this year — especially Santa (hoho), reindeer, snowmen, sleighs, presents, and elves. Watching the magic of Christmas come alive for him was just the sweetest blessing. Roman & I spent Christmas Eve at my parents along with my sister & her family. Then on Christmas Day, all three of us ventured over to M.’s mother’s house. It was his first time out of the house (other than for doctor/hospital visits) since his injury, so it was a pretty big deal.

We are truly blessed to have two incredible mothers who always go above & beyond to make the holidays so very special for us. We ate & ate & ate, and we came home last night with full bellies & fuller hearts. Here are a few snaps from our celebrations.

I hope that you & your family had a beautiful holiday celebration. I can’t believe it’s almost 2015!!! Eeeeek! It’s freaking me out a lot, but I’m also excited to see what the new year has in store, and especially to meet my little girl. xo
