We had such a great Christmas this year! Exhausting (I think our Christmas celebration count is up to eight as of today), but great. Usually on the 28th I would be feeling genuinely sad that the season is over and thinking of all the things I wanted to do and didn’t, but that’s not how I’m feeling this year. I really feel like we squeezed every drop of fun and festivity out of this month even amidst the crazy work schedules, life’s curve balls, obligations. We had so much fun! I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and have been able to enjoy some down time with your loved ones over the past few days.
As we were getting ready for our Christmas Eve festivities it started to snow! Camden watched from the window in our bedroom for a few minutes (yelling “RAIN!”) before I put on my big girl pants and let him go out and play in it. Well, I actually wasn’t in pants I was in my Christmas Eve dress and thigh high boots but it was worth it to see how excited he was. Nathan was showing him how to catch snowflakes on his tongue and we all had fun for about 7 minutes before we were freezing our butts off because we were improperly dressed. I hope we get more soon!

Shout out to all the parents just trying to get one good picture of your over-stimulated, over-sugared, over-tired children this Christmas. Solidarity.

We started Christmas morning reading this book and hyping up Jesus’ birthday as soon as Camden woke up. Eventually I would like us to read Luke chapter 2 on Christmas morning but this book is way more our speed at 19 months old and does the trick, I think.
The kitchen was a huge hit! He has already spent many consecutive minutes playing with it ON HIS OWN. Hallelujah.
Best part of Christmas? The nap I insisted we come home for in the middle of the day in between our four Christmas Day celebrations.
Toddlers Moms of toddlers can’t hang. We have had an amazing week celebrating with so many people we love! Nathan is off through Jan. 2nd then heads straight back to traveling for work so we are soaking in some family of three time, too. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season!
