First Christmas With KaylaSaturday, December 26, 2015
This Christmas feels so much more special than before because it's spent with my little Kayla ♥︎ To be honest it didn't feel as "Christmas-sy" as previous years because the last few days passed in a flash, and also because I wasn't quite ready for Christmas as well. In the past, I had time to plan dates with friends to Christmas shop or plan for parties and gatherings, but this year my Christmas shopping was done in a few hours and I was just rushing everywhere.
I guess my main priority this year was mainly for Kayla to have a good memory of her first Christmas (via photos hahaha), and also for Daniel to enjoy his birthday (it's on Christmas eve :D). By some miracle, we managed to arrange for enough staff to work on the 23rd, 24th and 25th so we only needed to make deliveries and drop by at the end of the night to do closing hehe.

( This year ♥︎ )
Am really thankful because we enjoyed 2 days of gatherings with friends and family, and then we brought Kayla to an indoor playground on Christmas day with Daniel's parents; and this all happened with barely any planning! :) Kayla also received a bunch of presents and was really happy to unwrap them hahaha, I honestly didn't think she would know how to unwrap presents at this age! This Christmas is also the first time she sat with us and ate at a restaurant. Pretty fun picking out some foods for her and watching her expression change (found out she really hates plain porridge!).
Anyway, I've come to realise Christmas is really a lot more fun when there are kids around haha. Seeing Kayla's face light up when she held her present made me want to buy the whole Toys'r'us down just so I can see that expression again. And I'm just feeling so so grateful that we didn't have to work on Christmas Eve, would've totally regretted it if I missed spending Christmas with Kayla! Kinda cliche but the best gift one can give or have is truly the gift of time with your loved ones (of course an expensive watch would be great too!).
This Christmas has been wonderful ♥︎
Hope everyone reading this had a lovely Christmas too!
