I love Christmas, but this was my favorite Christmas - it was so much fun to shop for and celebrate with Graycen. Although a bit overwhelming at times, Graycen had a great first Christmas. She is definitely one spoiled little girl :)
The holiday is always packed full for the Smiths - we celebrate Christmas Eve with Garrett's grandparents with a big family dinner and then had back to my parents' house to get ready for Santa.
Graycen was up bright and early on Christmas morning - in fact, she woke up before Brayden and tried to claim a few of the presents as her own...
Brayden FINALLY woke up and we were able to start Christmas with everyone - Grandma, Poppa, Uncle Adam, Auntie Amy, Brayden, mommy and daddy.
My mom continues the holiday tradition by making matching Christmas PJs for everyone. Garrett's were a little tight (think cousin Eddie from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation) and so it was just Graycen and I in matching jammies.
I had hoped that Graycen would be able/willing to "tear" off the wrapping paper on her presents, but she was more interested in drumming on the boxes, eating the ribbon and playing with the bows - maybe next year :)
After Christmas at the Lamberts was finished, we headed over to the Smith House to celebrate with Garrett's family.
