I will say that all the things you hear from parents with young children about finding the joy in Christmas through your child(s) eyes is completely true. I think Nick and I were more excited about Georgia's reactions to presents and Santa than our own gifts this year. However, we were thankful that she wasn't up at 3am like some of our friends' children! Truthfully, she was a tad confused by the Christmas morning chaos. She just wanted to play with a toy, yet we were telling her to put it down and unwrap something else. We had to take several breaks throughout the morning, especially since we had Santa's gifts from Maryland and Santa's gifts from Mimi to open! We finally finished the next morning.

|New car from Papa was quite a hit!|

Once the presents are all unwrapped, the real fun begins... construction. I worked for a doctor while in graduate school who once claimed that the three most dreaded words to read on Christmas morning were "batteries not included!"

I love this collage I made for Instagram comparing Georgia from last year's Christmas to this year, especially since she is wearing the same pair of pajamas. They were massive on her last year and fit perfectly this year. She hated wearing them last year and she would live in them this year, if we allowed her!

After a relaxing morning unwrapping presents and watching the Disney Parade on television, off to Auntie's we went for the rest of the day...
