Everything Embry: December 29

Leading Up To Christmas....

We spent the weekend and four days leading up to Christmas with Jacob's family. On last weeks blog I posted about the trail of lights and Christmas party we went to. Monday Jacob's parents had to work, so we spent a few hours at my parents house and out to lunch. Then Uncle Luke got into town and Embry got some time to play with him!

Embry was playing with my phone and I heard clicking....she was taking selfies....

When I took my phone back from Embry, I was getting Instagram notifications.... I realized she had posted her picture to Instagram?!?!?! 

Christmas Eve

Christmas Eve morning we had brunch and presents with Jacob's immediate family. Embry, of course, was very spoiled with so many fun gifts! (As were me and Jacob!!!) That afternoon we had Christmas at Grandma Gordon's house with the Gordon side of the family. We had a wonderful meal, good time with family and more showering of gifts!!!

Christmas Day

Christmas Morning we woke up at my parent's house after Embry had a restless night. She hadn't napped well the day before and didn't go to bed until 8:00 pm. (We had stayed at the Christmas Eve celebration a little later than planned). She was up a few times in the night and then up at 5:30 am. Me, Jacob and Embry got up and did Santa with Embry (opened her stocking) and exchanged gifts with each other. Ford was also a little under the weather and had a bad night, so we didn't start gifts as a group until after morning nap. She took a good nap, and seemed in much better spirits! We had a great day opening gifts, playing with the babies, eating, chatting, playing games, etc!

Super cute videos of her on Christmas morning!

Ford took his morning nap on me =)

After Christmas

We spent three days after Christmas with my family where we basically just relaxed and enjoyed the time off together. Friday, Jacob and I even had a day time date thanks to Mimi keeping Embry for a few hours! (We went to the mall to do some exchanges and then to lunch and to see Anchorman 2--our FIRST movie at the theater since Embry's been born!) It's been a wonderful week having Jacob off and all being in Austin together! We came home last night and are spending today getting back into the swing of things here in Dallas.
