I always put off this post. I hate the 'Christmas Recap' post. because it means Christmas is over for another year. all the excitement and anticipation- gone. I am officially in my post christmas depression. referred to as PCD in this house. Philip has been asking me every day to write our Christmas blog. So i finally am accepting that it's over, and it's time.

From there we headed to Georgetown for the rest of the day. Jackson got to come with us which was the best Christmas present he could have gotten :) It was different not being at my parents bright and early Christmas morning, but it all worked out so well. Our christmas with my parents was so wonderful. Mom made appetizers and we all grazed and opened presents and Ainsley played with Nana and Pop and her new toys:) Jax got to four wheel:)

That evening we went to Auntie Jo's for dinner and white elephant/Dirty Santa present exchange. Emily came to participate. Bringing in a non-family member is always dangerous because they get picked on. One of the gifts was chosen just for Emily and it was so hilarious!

Ainsley slept all over 40 minutes on Christmas Day. those 40 minutes were in the car from one place to the next. She could not miss one little thing. So much like her momma;) She was so happy though and didn't even fall asleep on the car ride home:) So glad she loved her first Christmas!
So we had such a great Christmas. God has blessed us in so many ways. with amazing family, a perfect daughter (to us!), and time to just reflect on the gift that Jesus was/is to our world.
While it is bittersweet that Ainsley's first Christmas has come and gone, we couldn't have asked for a better one for her. We already looking forward to next year's Christmas with her:)
I hope each of you had a wonderful Christmas as well, and got to spend lots of time with family loving on each other like we did.
