Christmas Day was a joyous one, filled with lots of family, love, gifts, and food. Matt's mom, AKA Grandma Doe, spent the night on Christmas Eve, as did my cousin Allie (who is a new Nashville transplant and nurse at Vandy-so proud!). It was so fun being surrounded by family and getting to stay up a little late and set up MR's gifts.
We found Molly in her nursery like this:
I think she was ready to see if Santa came. And, after a quick bottle and diaper change, we were ready to see if jolly Old Saint Nick stopped by our house...
And he certainly did!
Note: the bottle of Gentleman Jack behind the baby doll was one of daddy's gifts, not Molly's. Just to clarify.
Maybe I should have included a disclaimer at the beginning of this post that all pictures on Christmas morning would be sans makeup. Hope nobody is frightend too badly.
Christmas afternoon, Paul, Hilary, and brand new baby Mallie Kate arrived for a visit. It was the first time that Matt, Molly, and I got to meet little MK!
MR and MK, dubbed the M&Ms, are going to have so much fun together in the years ahead! I am so glad that they will get to grow up together and are only 9 months apart.
And last but certainly not least, we have some sweet pictures with the grandmas:
Now, who wants to come help us take down all of this Christmas stuff? I didn't think so, which is why our holiday decor will stay up just a few days longer until the New Year.
