Honestly, a lot of the month is a little bit of a blur and seemed more hectic than any past year. So, without pictures, I will have fond memories this year of going to Bon Air Baptist Church's Christmas Choir Special to see Matt's mom and to hear the wonderful music as always. We spent time with family and also enjoyed our friends. We went to the Hamrick Holiday Potluck and did a very quick mini-Tacky Light Tour which got shortened due to Charlie falling asleep at the first house (oh well...next year!). Charlie didn't know what really was going on but he did love the Christmas tree and all the lights and glimmer and he sure is enjoying all his many gifts. He enjoyed the paper on the packages even though he wasn't quite up for unwrapping a gift all on his own.
We celebrated with Matt's family early this year. We had such a wonderful day with a huge delicious breakfast. Following breakfast, Matt and I realized that I forgot the most important thing for Charlie...his bottles! Ugh! I was pretty disgusted at myself and we realized it about 5 minutes before he was due for his next bottle SO Matt had to drive 40 minutes round trip to grab his bottles while we tried to keep Charlie happy and content! Charlie actually did great and I felt pretty bad about the whole fiasco. It feels like whenever we go anywhere, it takes me about an hour to pack up the house before we leave.
Anyways, back to the wonderful day...Charlie so much enjoyed his time with his Aunt Courtney, Grandpa and Grammie. (so did Matt and I!)
Christmas Day was such fun. Matt and I brought Charlie in to see what Santa brought. We were very surprised that Santa was crazy enough to bring us a cat since Wally doesn't get along too well with cats. (Luckily, this cat is still around and has survived even though Wally does bark at her.)
