Christmas Eve... Jacob had to work, so Emily and I spent the day together. We went to OMSI and played in the kids area until she was pooped, and then headed home and (she) took a nap... her last nap in her crib... ever.

She was thrilled. The moment that I got the mattress on the bed with a new sheet and pillow, she grabbed her blanket, crawled in and laid down. lol. She was very happy about it... and still is... it was a super easy transition. We are so lucky with her!
After Jacob got home from work, we packed up the car and drove up to his parents place (about a half hour from our house) for Christmas Eve dinner and a white elephant gift exchange with his extended family. Lots of good food, good fun and fun presents. Emily was up WAY too late... and we suffered for it all night long (she kept waking up and crying until one of us would go in there... she never left her bed though!).

We left at a little after 6:00 to drive home... two hours before Emily's bedtime. She fell asleep in the car and didn't wake up until the next morning. The whirlwind of present opening wore her out! ;)
Jacob and I didn't bother to buy any gifts from Emily this year (or last year) because we knew that "Christmas" doesn't mean anything to her right now (and that her grandparents/aunts/uncles would get her plenty of stuff), but, next year I don't know if we'll be able to avoid it again! I'm just hoping that she'll be a little nicer to Santa next December. ;)
