Matt and I opened up one present each on Christmas Eve- I got Matt some Chicago Bear's shirts, and he got me some awesome cook books that I can't wait to use. We watched the movie "Salt" and then went to bed. We wanted to start a family tradition where we watched the same movie every year, but because of poor planning, all the movies we wanted to watch were rented out already. We decided next year that we would start to watch, "Horton Hears a Who" since that's a good family movie and super cute.
This morning, we woke up and opened all our presents. Matt did really well and got me some great gifts, including yummy chocolates from Cummings Studio Chocolates, my favorite place for candy. He got me some perfume and some great black boots that I've been in desperate need of. I got Matt some sweaters and a new CD player for his car. It was a great Christmas, and now that it's over, I can really focus on getting ready for baby :)
We relaxed, had some breakfast, and then went over to my Mom's house for Christmas dinner and to hang out with family. We just got home, and I am very tired. I think that equals a good Christmas if you are exhausted by the end of the day.
We have officially decided on the name Emma Claire, and can't wait for her to get here. Now that Christmas is over, it feels like I just need to get through January, and that doesn't seem so hard... *sigh* I am not a good pregnant person.
Anyways, here are some pictures plus a few random ones.
