We went over to Big Mommy's house for Christmas Eve. My work let out early at noon, and Rob had taken the day off. We came home played for awhile, and then met the rest of the family at Church for the "Children's Service." Kiersten, Kyle and Kaileigh each had a role in The Christmas Paegent. Kiersten did a wonderful job singing and led the choir well with her voice. Kaileigh quietly said her angel role, and the whole church became VERY quiet so they could hear her. Unfortunately, Rob's role during church was to take Caden outside and eventually to the nursury because Caden just would not sit still. Oh well: maybe next year.
After church, we went to Big Mommy's house for dinner. She made Italian Wedding Soup and it was wonderful!!! We also opened out presents from Big Mommy which was great. I received a lot of maternity clothes. Rob received Biscuits tickets and some Gin. Caden got a sleeping bag, a yellow Tonka truck and roller skates which he loves! Caden did well, but he was ready for bed when we got home. He did wake up a record, 7 times, and kept asking if Santa had visited! It was definitely his first Christmas where he understood what was happening!
Christmas Morning: Santa visited during the night! He brought lots of goodies for Caden, including a new doll that he could practice being sweet to! Caden absolutely loved the Diego Rescue Center that Santa brought him as well. He carries that little Diego everywhere with him. It as all but replaced Lightening McQueen.
We had a fun time playing at home in the morning. Caden had mostly candy for breakfast and after being so overwhelmed with all the new toys he had a meltdown and took a nap. We went over to Big Mommy's for dinner. She mad a roast and Christmas potatoes! My favorite. Caden did well there playing with his cousins. It was a wonderful Christmas and so nice to be with our family during the holiday!
The baby was measuring about a week ahead still and my due date is somewhere between May 1st - May 10th although my OB GYN is still going with my original May 10 due date. I hope he comes early since my parents will be going on vacation at the end of May.
