Merry Christmas!! The best day of the year came and went and what a joyous holiday it was! This year was so memorable with three littles experiencing the magic of Santa and the love of baby Jesus! John and I said at the end of the night last night that it was our favorite year yet. Ivy and Leo are at such a fun age learning everything there is to know about Santa and baby Jesus. It was such a pleasure teaching them all the joy of Christmas!
Our fun started on Christmas Eve Eve when we were able to see Santa again! This got the kids so excited! Favorite photo with Santa! Except bummer he wasn’t holding Faye too! :( Oh well!
Christmas Eve was pretty easy going for us in the morning. We spent it watching Rudolph for the 100th time and I started prep for hosting Christmas Eve dinner. We enjoyed church celebrating Jesus and singing gorgeous Christmas songs (always tear up at the candlelit Silent night!), then headed back to our house for a prime rib dinner. YUMM! It was relaxing and so nice being surrounded by our families. Ivy and Leo got to open a few presents and their Christmas pjs from Grandma Betsy and Grandpa Dan and Santa even made a visit!
The next morning was CHRISTMAS!!!!!! Ivy
walked ran into our room and said, “It’s CHRISTMAS!!!” She was so excited she could hardly stand it! She sat by the tree so patiently until Leo was up and ready. They ravaged through all their presents in about .2 seconds and were so happy with all of their new fun things to play with!! And Faye was so cute in her Baby’s First Christmas outfit!
Our last baby’s first Christmas :( :( After the mess was picked up (yeah right, house is still a disaster), we headed to brunch at John’s parent’s house and enjoyed mimosas and a yummy egg bake! The rest of the day was relaxing and so nice to enjoy Christmas with our family. John and I even said at the end of the night how perfect the last two days were. So fortunate for our family and friends and getting to be with loved ones for the holiday.
Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas!!! He is Risen!
