G's First Christmas

All I can say is G is a lucky, lucky boy! Jarrett & I are so blessed with amazing families, who spoiled G to no end. Even my extended family sent G Christmas goodies!

Christmas Eve is my birthday, so we always spend the day with my family. This year, my aunt surprised my family with a Portillo's care package that we had for lunch... HOLY YUMMINESS! Its always one of our first stops when we land in Chicago... I think I could do this monthly... I am not kidding. And maybe throw in some Lou Malnati's monthly too. I'd be in heaven. And fat. But who cares, right?!


We usually go out for dinner or my parents will cook tenderloin at home. With G this year, it seemed easier to me to stay in and hang out. It was very relaxing and nice to just spend time together.











G made out like a bandit - biggest highlights: Radio Flyer Wagon from DeeDee & Chief, Radio Flyer Grow with Me Tryke from Auntie Chara & Uncle Poopy and Moving Ball & Zoo from Nana & Papa

Typically we stay the night with my parents, but with G's arrival, I want him to wake up at home on Christmas morning, so we headed home that night. My Aunt Rhonda sent us Reindeer Food to sprinkle in the yard to be sure the reindeer were guided to our house, so we sprinkled the lawn and put down little man.

While G is little we will take advantage of "sleeping in" on Christmas morning. We leisurely got up and opened gifts at home




Santa brought G some toys, shoes & his very own chair to hang out in.





After we finished up at home we headed over to J's parents for breakfast and hanging out. These sweet cousins make Christmas so much better.












Again G got amazing things (so did we!) - highlights: MiMi & Pops got G the Bright Beats Play Space and Auntie Jojo & Uncle Justin got G the sweetest book that is customized with his name. Its amazing!

Next Christmas Hayes & G will be wild as ever & I cannot wait to watch this holiday through their eyes once again!
