We had 2 family get togethers on Saturday....1 was 1 hr to the East and the other was 1 hr the opposite way. This was the day I had been stressed about due to naps and schedules and fussiness....HOWEVER, Miss Peyton was absolutely perfect.
When she woke from her 1st nap we headed east for the 1st get together. She sat and played in her car seat and didn't make a peep the whole way there (except for some chatter back and forth with her Minnie Mouse). She was charming and playfully bashful and waved at everyone and everything (one of her new favorite things to do). We ate, let her open her 2 first Christmas gifts, then hit the road so we could make it back in time for her to get a little sleep. She was fussy on the way home, but finally fell asleep. When we got home I was able to make a smooth transition from car to crib without her waking up too much. She took another good 2 hr nap and I cooked my casserole while she napped.
When she woke we loaded up and headed to the 2nd get together. When we walked in my Aunt scooped her up and we didn't see much of Peyton after that LOL. It was nice to be able to sit down at the table with Edwin and eat an entire meal uninterrupted! Peyton got another awesome Christmas gift (I'll have pics once I get them from my Aunt). We couldn't stay too long, but we were able to eat, visit, and take some pictures before we had to hit the road. Poor girl crashed hard on the way home. I hated to wake her up to put on her pj's and change her diaper, but she was back asleep not 10 mins later and didn't move the entire night!
Edwin went across the street to a friend's Christmas party after Peyton went to bed. We were going to switch off and I was going to walk over after him, but I never made it. I put on my sweats, got in the bed and turned on a Christmas movie...it was over after that! Sunday we were back in the car to go look at a Jeep in Goldsboro. We're looking for an older SUV just as an extra "just in case" vehicle with 4wd. Just something we can pay cash for. We made a quick Target run after looking at the Jeep then were FINALLY home for the rest of the day, whew!
A few holiday pics....
