Updates? How was your holiday?
QOTD: What was your favorite holiday as a kid? How do you/are you going to celebrate it with your kids?
We're 7 weeks today and I'm learning to manage all my symptoms. C was sick since Friday, so we had an exteremely low-key holiday of movies and staying in.
QOTD: My favorite "holiday" was probably my birthday as I got two parties - a small friends one with my mom and a large family (joint with my brother) bbq/picnic one with my dad. We definitely plan to celebrate birthdays with our kids, but probably something along the lines of a smaller friends celebration.
Holidays were crazy, non stop. They were nice though! We loved seeing all the family. I am now on vacation with 36ish days left so I am in major nesting mode.
My parents got us a new deep freezer so we have to get the garage moved around tonight as they are bringing it on Friday.
QOTW - I am not really sure. It would probably have to be Christmas. As a little kid my answer would have been all the cool things we got but as I have gotten older its more just about family time. This was the one holiday where I got to see my whole family on both my mom's and dad's sides. I have a ton of cousins and aunts and uncles so all of us getting together was hard.
As far as carrying these to our kids, we will always make sure they see all their aunts, uncles and cousins for this holiday as it was very special to us. Plus our family are so important to us that we want to pass that down to our kids.
We spent Christmas at home, just the two of us. It was hard not being around family, but my wife was super supportive and sweet all day.
We did an early pregnancy test and got a BFN :-( We are going to wait for my missed period on Sunday and then take another one.
We had a great low-key Christmas. The kids were up bright and early (hello, 5:06am!) and loved their gifts. Their favorite was the Skylanders Wii game that they have been playing a lot of (thankfully, they are going to camp this week at the gym to counteract the amount of video games they played yesterday.) Legos, board games, and books were also big hits. I felt horrible we hadn't invited my dad....
QOTD: Christmas was always my favorite. We celebrate very similarly to how I celebrated it as a kid: Santa gifts are unwrapped and left with the stockings for the kids to enjoy when they wake up. After breakfast, we open a gift, play with it, hang out, open another, etc so it lasts all day. (L prolongs this more than I would....we didn't finish till 5pm yesterday!)
We are 26 weeks and little man is moving like a maniac in there, its awesome! Next week starts the 3rd trimester. This pregnancy seems to be going so fast and slow slow all at the same time. The anticipation to meet him is out of control....
How was your holiday?
Holiday was great, we scored big this year! Every single present "santa" brought our girls was "THE BEST PRESENT EVER!!!!" and after the presents were opened all we heard all day was "THIS WAS THE BEST CHRISTMAS EVER!!!" So as all of you Mom's/Dad's know....that is a mega WIN!
My favorite Holiday as a kid was and still is Halloween. I LOVE dressing up and getting the kids dressed up. I cant wait till the kids are a little older and can have Halloween parties!
