What a Merry Christmas it was! So much cheer in our home as we got to celebrate the special holiday with family and friends and our kids! Best of all was seeing Ivy go crazy with all of the Santa stories and presents! So much fun. A very memorable holiday indeed.
This year was unlike any other! Ivy REALLY got the jist of Christmas and Santa and baby Jesus this year, so it was so much fun explaining to her all of the stories and tales about Christmas! We tried to make it extra special and I about died when she wanted to leave Santa a plate of cookies and a glass of milk. So adorable! She even wanted to leave Rudolph a carrot, buuut, with no carrots in the house, she picked a grape instead, ha!
Ivy was such a pro at opening presents! She can read her name (pretty easy, three letters! I-V-Y) and we also taught her how to read Leo’s name (another easy one, L-E-O), so she would go around all of the presents looking at I-V-Y or L-E-O, it was super cute and hilarious!
All she had been asking Santa for were these Anna and Elsa dolls and Santa delivered! She was beyond ecstatic to open them and she hasn’t let go of them since! Leo scored on some new boy toys, lots of cars and trucks.
We also had such a blast with stockings! We kind of ran out of time for them with a brunch with John’s family, then dinner with my family, so we did them the next morning and it was a fun surprise for them to get to open one more thing!
Such a fun holiday and tons of food and holiday cheer. Here are some of my favorite pictures from this Christmas season!
Hope you had a very Merry Christmas! I can’t believe it’s 2017 in a few days!!!!
