Christmas was so much more fun this year sharing it with our baby boy...or should I say big boy Reed:) We started out a little bit rocky....Daddy came down with a TERRIBLE stomach bug the week of Christmas!!! I felt so bad for him and stayed FAR, FAR away b/c I was terrified Reed and I might get it! Well, after several sprays of Lysol as I entered our bedroom and wiping everything with Clorox wipes, Reed and I were avoiding it so far. Cody felt a little bit better Wed morning, which was the day we were heading south, but still very weak. He managed to load our vehicle since I had all of our presents, luggage, hang-up clothes, pet porter and dog, etc. waiting at the door as he came home from work. We packed basically everything but the kitchen sink! Anyway, we left Wed. afternoon around 4:30 and traveled through a MONSOON!!!! It rained almost the entire trip home! I told Cody we are very blessed to have a child who sleeps well in the car, THANK GOODNESS!!!! Reed pretty much slept the entire way home:) We will eventually start our own Christmas traditions at our house, but we decided this year we would do Santa at Nana and Pops house Christmas Eve morning! Cody and I stayed up late getting everything ready that night for Reed.....I was so excited to have a baby this year at Christmas time. It definitely adds lots of joy to our Christmas!!! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone!!!
