christmas 2012

i can't believe christmas has already come and gone. and so has another year. time just flies.

christmas this year was super fun. addison really got into christmas and santa and all holiday things.

i was told {by addison's dad} not to go as overboard as i did the last couple of years. i went really overboard 2 years ago, and toned it down a little last year. so i was going in the right direction, right?

this year i think i did better. addison got a BIG toy from santa and then some smaller things. but she did comment that she got too many gifts. point taken.

christmas eve was spent at my dad and step mom's with her family. she has a big family and it's always fun when everyone gets together. addison has 3 little boys around her age to play with, so it's nice that they can do their own thing without needing any grownups {most of the time}.

we didn't get home until about 11:30 that night and addison probably didn't go to bed until around midnight. so needless to say, she was a little tired when she was woken up. and santa i was a little tired too since i had to stay up even later.

addison's big present from santa was a barbie princess castle. my mom and i put it together the weekend before christmas and hid it under a sheet in the dining room and addison never noticed. she loves it! although there are some things that i wish i could change about it. like why would they make a bed that doesn't even fit in the bedroom?? oh well.

santa also brought a princess castle tent. it's collapsable and is super cute. addison has been hanging out in it and reading books.

addison's stocking was filled with all things princess. and candy, of course.

she had a bunch of presents to unwrap too. all from me and her dad and gigi. she asked why santa didn't wrap any presents. guess he'll need to next year.

other things addison got from us and family included: lots of spinny dresses and clothes, pink fringe boots, lalaloopsy headphones, books, playdoh, princess barbies, adorable cheetah print toms, a fijit {which i may end up regretting}, games, books, and more. the child isn't spoiled at all {i can't speak much, though}.

i may love hello kitty a little. santa brought me a hello kitty tervis tumbler {we're kind of obsessed with tervis tumblers}. and addison {aka gigi} got chris and i an ornament {which i'm using as a keychain} that says "i love you to the moon & back". addison says that to us all the time. so sweet!

i also got clothes, a new michael kors purse and wallet {which i'm in love with}, fringe boots {to match addison}, and lots more. guess i'm kinda spoiled like her.

hope everyone had a fabulous christmas and a great start to the new year!
