Since we spent Christmas with my family earlier in December, Camillo and I decided it'd be a good year to start our every-other-year-plan. We don't get to take turns between families because Camillo's family lives in Brasil. As grand as it would be to travel to South America biennially, we just can't do it. So the last couple years have been spent with my family but this year, we stayed at our house - just the three of us! I was really looking forward to an intimate family Christmas and I wasn't disappointed. It was perfect.
Oliver finally slept through the night again. The week before he'd been waking up every two hours screaming hungry. Oh, and every night since then, too. So much for 10 hour nights. Anyways, it was a great Christmas gift from my little guy. I woke up feeling rested and ready for a happy day. We stayed in bed for another hour or two, taking pictures, singing silly songs, and snuggling. I love my boys!
By next year, when Ollie is old enough to kinda join in, I hope to establish a couple more Christmas traditions. What are some of your family traditions? Do tell!
