Christmas 2014

We had a wonderful Christmas this year! We headed down to Grammy’s house on Monday night after I got off work. The kids were out of school all week and their cousins were already in from Colorado.

The days leading up to Christmas were filled with swimming, canoeing, and boating. We took walks, hung out with the family, and got some running in.

We got dressed for Christmas Eve dinner and of course, had to sneak in a photo shoot with the kids. After our photo shoot, the kids got to open a couple gifts from Grammy.

After dinner, the kids made and decorated cookies for Santa!

Christmas morning arrived and the kids opened their gifts. We had a great brunch, including mimosas, and then it was time for the adults to open their gifts. Conveniently, the kids were all playing with their toys and Crosby was down for his nap.

After everyone else had their nap time, we all headed down to the beach. Drew was determined to jump in the ocean on Christmas Day. It was the first time any of us had our feet in the sand on Christmas. It was a lot busier than I expected, so I guess everyone else had the same idea. Everyone got in the water except for Crosby and I. It was a tad cold for my liking and he took a little nap in the Ergo while everyone played.

After the beach, Greg and I snuck out of the house and took the canoe out. It was extremely relaxing and peaceful out there.

After a great Christmas dinner and then game night with the fam, we headed back to our house the next morning. It was so so great to see Greg’s family and spend Christmas with them. When we got back home, my parents were already there and we celebrated Christmas with them.

We finished off the night with a steak dinner and a very early bedtime for everyone. We had such a fun week celebrating Christmas, but it was also exhausting. The kids had a blast with their cousins and the holidays keep getting more fun as they get older.

I hope everyone had a great Christmas!
