Christmas Eve morning started off with Dash (the elf) saying farewell to Delainey for the year. He brought her powdered donuts from the north pole and left her a nice note saying she has been very good and Santa will be bringing gifts tomorrow. Bye Dash...until next December! She was loving her donuts!
Then we made a birthday cake for Jesus to celebrate the true reason we celebrate Christmas. Delainey and I are going to make a cake every Christmas eve. This will be our little tradition. After baking we took a nap and got ready for church. I just loved her red corduroy smocked dress this year!
Off we went to church. Delainey did pretty good considering she had to sit through an hour of big church with singing and a sermon. She kept asking "Who's that?" as people came up on stage. We had to duck out of church early to make it to our dinner reservation at Julington Creek Fish Camp. The food was delicious! I am so glad we have a great restaurant around the corner. After dinner we came home, had Jesus' birthday cake and got our christmas eve pajamas.
The next morning everyone came over to watch Delainey wake up and open her presents. I think she was a little overwhelmed by 10 people sitting in the living room watching her after just waking up. She dove right into opening some gifts, but about half way through the presents she said "read book" and tried to go to her room. She didn't love all the attention on her. Eventually she warmed up and finished opening all of her gifts! She got some awesome stuff! Some things she received are: trampoline, bike, powerwheels jeep, tee ball stuff, shopping cart, minnie mouse dress up clothes, puzzles, books, and the list goes on and on.
After playing with all her toys and taking a nap, we headed over to Dave's parents house for a nice prime rib dinner. It was a fantastic Christmas and so much more fun watching Delainey's excitement through it all. I hope everyone else had a great Christmas spent with family and friends.
