Reagan's First Christmas

We were lucky enough to have the best of both worlds this year for Christmas! Reagan got to meet lots more family, on both sides,and spend some quality time with the family she had already met.

Our little family of three packed up the car and headed over the mountains to visit Grandma and Grandpa Austin on the 22nd. There we celebrated Christmas early with Great Grandma Paulie, Gma and Gpa Austin, Uncle Craig and Uncle Travis, Miss Alyssa, and of course The four legged family, Omni, Drake and Tank.

We had a fabulous Christmas dinner, got to play with everyone and of course got lots of hugs and squeezes!

Cody and I got a good wakeup call on the joys of traveling with a baby. Its rough, and Im convinced I already need a bigger car. Do they make Surburbans with a diaper changing station in the trunk?

When we arrived home we got to open the presents Santa left and the presents Grandpa Mike sent! We spent Lots of time curled up under blankies and playing with all our new toys. We had Christmas Eve and Christmas dinner at Nana Carrie's house. Uncle Riley was home on leave, it was so great getting to spend time with him. Reagan and Ri had lots of playtime while he was home.

Uncle Craig and Uncle Travis were able to come hang out while they were visiting the area on our side of the mountains, it was fun to watch Omni check Reag out. She was enamored with him, he was not so sure of her! I bet next year they will be chasing each other around, he is the perfect size for a little babe.

We were so fortunate to have had daddy home for the holidays! Since he is still in training they had a nice long four day weekend! With his new career in the railroad it may not always be this way.
