Before I had lily, I was the world’s biggest Grinch. I just didn’t really see the point. Last year, Lily was only a few months old when it came around to christmas, so it was a bit pointless doing the whole christmas thing such as stockings.
This year, we got a second chance at it! Lily is 15 months old this time so while she still doesn’t understand Christmas, she noticed that something was going on. It was really nice to be able to do all the things with her that I did with my parents when I was little. We went to church and because she was good, she got a present on Christmas eve, she sat with us all to open our presents but the best part was she was able to eat Christmas dinner. We had a full roast dinner with everything. It was nice to have her join us at the table and see what was going on.
