Christmas 2010!

Now that Sienna is a bit older and understands what goes on with Christmas, it really is a lot of fun (last year every time we handed her a present, she would ask if she could open it. This year she knew what to do!) It is also nice to start our own family traditions like going to see the Rockefeller Tree and the Dyker Heights lights. I also feel like this Christmas was a little less stressful than in the past and didn’t get upset when I didn’t make all the cookies I wanted to or make a gingerbread house with Sienna like I wanted to. There’s always next year! I didn’t overly stress about what we were doing for Christmas dinner (we ended up going out to eat with my parents) or worry that we didn’t get enough or got too many presents for Sienna. I just wanted to enjoy the time with my family. And I did!

We opened our stockings on the eve and Sienna pretty much woke up normal time on Christmas. I made a french toast casserole in the oven (which came out so so but I think I used too much bread or not enough eggs. There’s always next year!) It was a big year for Little People, board games for family game night, Tag books and Super Why!
