I am beaming with love and gratitude after this past weekend. This was by far the best Christmas I've ever had! It was so amazing to watch my little boy experience the joy and wonder of Christmas for the first time. It adds a whole new meaning for me.
My wonderful husband works very, very hard at a few jobs so that I am able to stay home with little Milton while I am pregnant with Ginger. This is such a wonderful gift to me as well as little Milton but it also comes with a lot of sacrifices. I can't remember the last time I had an entire day to spend with my husband but luckily on Christmas we did just that. It was so wonderful to be able to just relax and enjoy time together as a family with no where to go and nothing to do except cook and play.
So on top of all of that my husband surprised me with a mini laptop AND cooked Christmas dinner for me. The past few years my husband and I have been very busy and very broke for one reason or another so we haven't exchanged gifts for about 3 years and this year was to be no different, so you can imagine how surprised I was when I received my mini laptop!! I am beyond excited and grateful!!! Normally I always blog from our home computer because that's all we had which usually means I blog late at night or when little M is napping because he almost always requires 100% of my attention. This will enable me to blog from bed or on the go and will help me out so much once little Ginger arrives. Plus it is just about the cutest darn thing I have ever seen! It's so small it fits right in my purse. I'm so grateful!! Honestly, I had just an amazing day!
Here's a couple shots of the chipotle, garlic roasted chicken my hubby made for Christmas dinner. We also had mashed potatoes and broccoli with a white cheddar cheese sauce.
Santa brought Little Milton a multitude of musical instruments and toys this year. For those of you who don't know my husband is a musician. He works at a music store, teaches private lessons and gigs a few nights a week so we are a VERY musical family. Little Milton got a professional children's sized drum set, a ukulele, and a DJ station for Christmas. All of these can be very fun and LOUD so we were also sure to take the proper precautions to protect his sensitive little ears and luckily he LOVES his ear protector headphones. Here he is being A*D*O*R*A*B*L*E
Here's little Milton in his GORGEOUS Christmas jon jon that his aunt Schanda made for him. Isn't it the cutest? Plus it's handmade by family......L*O*V*E
Unfortunately I had a very time getting any photos of Milton and I together. He wouldn't smile and I kept making horrible faces so here's the best one I could get. Merry Christmas from our family!!!
