Merry Christmas!

We have a wonderful first Christmas with the little ladies. They got way to many toys and had way to much fun! Too much fun you say? Nah, Never. Actually it was so hard to put them to bed Christmas night. We didn't succeed until 10 pm and that was only because mommy and daddy said "enough" put them in bed and shut the door. We let them cry it out. They cried for about 15 heartbreaking minutes, then they went to sleep and slept all night :).

We started the day with breakfast, then opened a few presents, then took a nap. While they were napping, the adults opened gifts. I got a new glider from Katie, a cute pair of eeyore pjs from Karly and a very pretty mommy necklace from my three loves. I got a pair of pjs from the in laws.

Today, Saturday, I had a very mommy/daughter day. It was fun but hard. We got up at 6:30, had a bottle of milk and hung around until daddy went to work. Then I put the girls down for a nap while I ate and cleaned a little. When they woke up, we headed to Burlington Coat to do a little shopping. You can get some baby stuff there for WAY cheaper than BRU. After that we went to daddys work then went grocery shopping for formula.

We came home, had some lunch. Yummy oatmeal with Applesauce and a bottle. Took a short nap, had a bath then got ready for a birthday part. I did the baths by myself! There are these cute little bath beds I call them. They are a slanted piece of mesh attached to legs and it holds them in a slanted position. I put both in the tub and put the babies in the tub, scrubbed them up and got them out. I was sweating by the time we made it to the bedroom. Karly hates lotion, so she screamed while I put in to. I got her dressed and happy and watched my little Katie. Naked as a jaybird laughing and playing with feet. So precious! Anyway I lotioned her up and got her dressed.

The party was so loud. Did I mention that I took my baby girls to an 8 and a 4 year olds birthday party? There were kids everywhere. Did I mention I took them by myself?! It was crazy. The other women helped me a little bit but they had their own kids to take care of. It was busy and loud and I was very tired. My friend let me put the girls to sleep in her bedroom where I crossed my fingers and begged Karly not to do a spitting up while laying down routine. She didn't thank goodness. Did I mention I won't be doing that again? :)

Well that was my day. I'm exhausted. Time for bed :). I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas!
