Grant’s First Christmas

Christmas has come and gone and my head is still spinning a little. I cut way back this year – ordered nearly every gift online, didn’t bake any sweet treats, used a lot more gift bags than wrapping paper. We focused on driving during nap times, getting home for bed and making people take a flu test before coming within 10 feet of Grant [exaggerating, but only slightly].

We got a new camera for Christmas! So fun.

Tired Christmas GrantThe holidays were so fun, but tuckered us all out. We are headed on vacation for New Years. Traveling with a four-month old should be relaxing, right?
