Christmastime is here

Wow what a way to kick off the holiday season. It was so busy and fun the wee one is still recovering!

So we left on Wednesday and headed to the homeland (aka MD). Mags slept the entire way down. We stopped at my mom's work so all her co-workers could meet the Magster. Then a quick stop at Panera for my fave sandwich (roast beef asiago) {btw I love/hate that Panera puts the calorie counts on their hanging menu....just saying} and then on to my mom's house. Hung out for awhile, Maggie had the cutest laughing fit and later she fell asleep in the kitchen while we were eating dinner. I was a little nervous about how she would sleep while we were away. So we gave her a bath, dressed her in these adorable pjs...

And the little angel slept that night like a champ. She slept the entire trip really well, I was so proud (now last night...that's another story!) So Thursday morning we woke up and I had these sugarplum fairytale notions of watching the Macy's Thanksgiving parade with Maggie, but she wasn't really interested and ended up taking a nap.

Our first Thanksgiving was at 1pm and everything was so delish. I love the dumplings, dressing and of course the green bean casserole. So after stuffing my face at my mom's it was on to my dad's for another dinner. More delicious food to be had there! Needless to say I was hurting at the end of the night! After dinner Maggie did a little hunting after dinner with her Ppaw....

We spent the rest of the trip at my dad's. We relaxed on Friday, sitting around watching movies {"Eat, Pray, Love" was awesome} and then Brian and I went out to have some drinks with my brother at this really cool bar.

Saturday morning we got up and took some pictures for my dad's Christmas card and then it was back on the road. We made pretty good time getting home and decorated our house when we got home.

Sunday we went over to Brian's parents house to help them decorate their tree. Afterwards we went out to dinner. Mags got a little fussy at the end of dinner and then was pretty fussy when we got home. She is still a little fussy and we think she is just recovering from all the stimulation and activity. {Let's hope!}

And last but definitely not least this weekend we celebrated Maggie's 4 month birthday. If you can believe it..... Here are some pics!

Tomorrow we go for Mag's 4 month appointment. Can't wait to see how much she's grown!
