Christmas Day

I took a break over the holidays so I’m just getting a chance to post about Christmas now. We celebrated with the in-laws on the eve, which left Christmas Day for the 3 of us to have family time at home. Here’s how we spent our day…

A pic in front of the tree with our matching pj’s. I found a pretty close match for A and hubbie (Lands End & Old Navy respectively) but mine were pretty off (Target). Oh well!

We put a bow on the greatest gift of all, while she opened her gifts.

Last year was my first as a mom and I wanted to start a tradition for Christmas. I decided on sticky buns every Christmas morning. So last year, I made them using the Barefoot Contessa’s shortcut method (puff pastry sheets). It was pretty good but this year, I wanted to challenge myself by making sticky buns from scratch. HA! It was a complete disaster! I know I made at least 1 big mistake…hubbie, don’t say a word!! If you have a good, idiot-proof recipe for sticky buns, please send my way.

After eating some bready sticky buns, we headed out to the park to build a snowman. It was a first experience for both A and myself!

Posing with Mr. Snowman! She was annoyed that I made her stop running to pose with the guy.

Bidding the snowman farewell..

Hmm…I think you’re a little big for that pack & play.

Back at home, we played with all of A’s new toys and got dinner ready for some good friends that come over every Christmas. It was a lovely day! How did you spend your Christmas?
