You know, nothing ever turns out like you think it's going to. Mason just celebrated his very first Christmas and it's somewhat hilarious all of the plans I had for him. "We're going to make all these homemade ornaments. I'm going to make stockings. We're going to take lots of good family pictures." HA! Why do I always try and make so many plans knowing they won't get done?!
Regardless of everything that didn't get done, Mason had a wonderful first Christmas. We spent LOTS of time with family and that's really what matters most anyway! Of course I spent the week celebrating with a sinus infection. But I tried my best not to let that get in the way!
Mason received lots of awesome gifts from everyone. Brandon and I go with the "Something you want, something you need, something to wear, something to read" method when Christmas gift shopping. And looking back on the week, I'm so glad we did. This kid came home with so many gifts we might need to rent another apartment just for storage. But I'm grateful Mason is so loved!
Since he's only 5 months old, I don't have a whole lot to report on Christmas. Other than him pooping on my sister. [Still laughing about that] So I will just leave you with some pics :)
