Baby's 1st Christmas

This Christmas was a whirlwind. Does anyone else feel like the day just flew by at lightning speed? I feel like I blinked and the day was half over! Despite that it went wayyyy too fast, Aiden had a very sweet first Christmas.
He attended his first candlelit Christmas eve service, watched Mickey's Christmas with Drew and I as we ate our traditional Christmas breakfast and slept through the night Christmas eve. Merry Christmas Mom and Dad! Even though he slept through the opening of his stocking and most of his presents he was such a little trooper and even endured us making him wear suspenders and a bow tie for a few pictures. Here is our day in pictures starting with a few Christmas eve pictures because they were too cute not to share...
We started off Christmas day with what I hope becomes a yearly Christmas morning tradition...Drew reading the story of Jesus birth to us aloud in bed. My Aunt and Uncle gave us this book for Aiden and wrote a sweet message inside. It's the little things...
Then there were still presents to be wrapped and food to prepare so in the Ergo went Aiden and Drew and I got a few things done before we enjoyed my favorite breakfast of the year. After a few hours at home with our family of 3 we headed to my parent's house for more festivities.
My favorite Christmas present from Annabee Jewelry. A necklace with Aiden's name on it!
Next stop, my Aunt and Uncle's farm for a late Christmas lunch and a pretty/ugly ornament exchange. My Aunt and Uncle own a horsemanship school so it's only fitting their gift to Aiden was an authentic rocking horse.
Last stop, Drew's parent's house where we ate Lasagna, opened gifts and played games. We always get Christmas jammies on Christmas Eve so they always make for fun photos. Even Aiden got jammies this year.
And no holiday is complete without a Pioneer Woman recipe. I made her Christmas tortilla roll ups and they were delicious and so easy!
I absolutely loved our first Christmas as a family of 3
and despite Aiden's face in this picture, I think he enjoyed it too.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!
