Christmas is the best time of the year. I love it, your Dad loves it, and I think you're going to love it, too! The best part is seeing all of our amazing family members and close friends. This year we celebrated the season with many different parties. The first was a gettogether with the Grogg family at Aunt Jill's house. Everyone was there and we had a great time with the gift exchange!

The next weekend we left the dogs home with the dog sitter and trekked to Michigan for the Young family Christmas party at Aunt Carol's house. We had a great time playing with all of your cousins (Cash, Briggs, Zain and Easton) and catching up with everyone. We were also given some fabulous gifts for you! You're not even here yet, and you're already the life of the party!

Later that week, on December 23rd, we decided to host our first annual Christmas party at our house! We invited your Dad's entire immediate family and Grandma Young, but unfortunately she couldn't make it. We had a great dinner and then Aunt Courtney, Aaliyah, Lily, Corbin and I all did some Christmas crafts!
After the crafts were finished, we handed out our gifts to Grandpa and Grandma Snipes, Aaliyah, Lily, Bella and Corbin. I got into the gift-giving mood, myself and let your Dad open one of the gifts I'd purchased for him- custom crochet viking hats for him and you! I was so excited when he opened the gift, I almost started crying! Since you're not here yet to wear the hat yourself, Bella graciously agreed to model for the photo op. And Lily wanted to try one on, too!
Your Dad and I spent a quiet Christmas Eve together and it was really nice- exactly what we both needed after weeks of all these parties! The next morning, after Santa had visited your cousins, we all went over to Grandma and Grandpa Snipes' house to open more presents!
Although Christmas this year was great, we couldn't help but think of how much better next year will be because you'll be here! We can't wait to introduce you to the Grogg and Young families, and let them fall in love with you like I know they will. We can't wait to host our 2nd annual Christmas party (with you as co-host!). We can't wait for Santa to come down our chimney and leave you presents under the tree. And we can't wait to take you over to Grandma and Grandpa Snipes' house to celebrate with all of your cousins. Next Christmas is going to be magical, Mia. Just wait and see!
