The morning of Christmas Eve we took the kids to get our annual picture on Santa’s lap and he asked them what they wanted for Christmas. My 11 year old asked for rain on Christmas day. My 9 year old asked for World Peace. My 5 year old little buddy asked for a robot.
We nailed 1 out of 3.
Even though we had nothing but sunshine Christmas day and World Peace is a work in progress, we still managed to have an amazing holiday. Lots of love and family time and eating too much food and relaxing. The best. My mom gave my girls the Anne of Green Gables DVD’s for Christmas (El has been reading the books) and we’ve had fun watching the series. Love Anne (with an “e”) so much. :)
I meant to share our family pictures/clothes for a Fashion Friday post earlier in the month but December got away from me. It’s always kinda fun for me to pick out our family picture outfits. I try to shop our closets first and then buy anything else we need to coordinate. I went with coral, army green, and black and white stripes this year.. shocker I know. :)
My talented friend Josie took our pictures. Here are a few other favorites…
These three really are so much fun right now. I know this sounds so corny but sometimes when I’m watching them play together I feel such an overwhelming amount of love for them I think my heart might burst. But then two of them will start fighting and the moment passes and my heart stays in tact. ;)
This week between Christmas and New Year’s is so nice. Part of me wants to start taking down Christmas decor and cleaning and organizing up a storm, but another part of me wants to just stay in sweats and watch movies with my family all day by the Christmas tree lights. Leaning towards sweats and movies at this point. The cleaning and organizing can wait until January.
Come January I’ll be ready to TEAR IT UP. I hope you’ll join me!
Thanks to all of you for your love, support and friendship this year! I truly appreciate it so much. More than you know. All of your sweet comments and kind words whether they are on the blog, Facebook or Instagram just make my day. I hope your Christmas was wonderful and you are joining me in sweats and downtime this week.
But if you’re organizing already.. I can support that too.
Enjoy your holiday friends!
