We decided to spend the night in Baltimore and leisurely make our way home on the 26th. It's funny how much more relaxed Christmas was since there was no pressure to get in as much quality time as possible. We thought it would be nice to live closer during the holidays and fortutnaly, that seems right.

This Christmas we woke up at our house (which was amazing) around 6:00 with Cole while Ibbie slept in. Cole saw a new play mat which stopped her in her tracks on the way to the kitchen. She got out her trucks and construction equipment then started playing right away.
When she finally made her way into the kitchen the ran directly for the wrapped play kitchen. While she unwrapped the gift she just kept exclaiming, "Ooooooo! Oooooooo!" She started playing and didn't stop until her sister woke up at 8:00.
By 10:00 we were in Baltimore, celebrating Christmas at Scottie and Big's house in our pajamas.
Around noon, we got over to my dad's for a way too good and way too big Christmas breakfast. Cole had a blast playing with the toys my dad set out for her and demanding rides her new red wagon.
