Lucy's First Christmas!

How is Christmas over already? Time is going by way too quickly and we're less than a week away from twenty-twenty one! This year's Christmas was by far the best Christmas thus far for Rudy and me. This was Lucy's very first Christmas and it was so magical. Since this was a special Christmas I began snapping photos on Christmas Eve until Christmas night, and I can't wait to share them all with you guys.

We spent the holiday at home and it was so relaxing. On Christmas eve we all hung out at home watching holiday movies. Some of our favorites are; The Santa Clause 1-3, Elf, The Grinch with Jim Carrey, Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Home Alone 1&2, and finally Noelle (such an underrated film!).

We then gathered all the kids, Juicy, Bowie, and Lucy in front of the tree to take photos of the three. I would do this with Juicy and Bowie every year and I can't wait to continue this with Lucy.

In the evening Rudy and I made a hand and footprint ornament of Lucy since this is her first Christmas and all and it turned out so cute. I can't wait to have this sweet little ornament hanging on our tree for many years to come. Right after it was bath time for Lucy and we ended the night with Rudy reading The Night Before Christmas to Lucy. I'm hoping this will be a little tradition of theirs.

Christmas morning started a little early. I fed Lucy and once she went down for her first nap I started on a tradition of mine, making french toast for Rudy and me for breakfast.

Finally, once Lucy woke from her nap it was time to open gifts. She's normally only up for an hour before she taps out and is ready for her next nap so she wasn't really feeling the gift opening. Before even getting halfway through gifts she was out like a light and Rudy moved her to her crib haha.

85% of the gifts under the tree was for Lucy and since she was such a good girl this year Santa brought her tons of goodies like a new Cuddle and Kind doll Zara the unicorn, The Nutcracker book, a bouncer, some vans to match her mama, and her favorite binky.

In the afternoon Lucy received a special visit and finally met her uncle, aunt, and cousin from Rudy's side. It was so sweet seeing the two together and we even put on Lucy's Grinch sweater to take a photo of the two matchings since he too had a Grinch sweater.

Lastly, we ended the night once again by reading a book to Lucy, this time it was my turn and she slept so soundly. 

I hope your Christmas was as wonderful as mine was. Here's to hoping next year can be better and celebrated with more family like it once was before. Happy Holidays!
