Just popping in quickly to wish you all a Merry Christmas! I couldn’t let the day end without telling my sweet blog family how much you all mean to me. :) I’m so touched that you let me be a small part of your day! Your support and words of encouragement put the sunny in sunny side up for me. ALWAYS. THANK YOU! Thank you for reading and for being here with me this year.
We snapped this picture today just before kicking off a few Christmas Eve traditions! We have quite a random evening that has been pieced together over the years of things my kids love to do. Gingerbread houses, Christmas stories and discussions about the reason for the season. Starbucks in pjs to get hot chocolate/pink drinks and then a drive through a favorite neighborhood full of lights. Take out from a favorite restaurant and then singing “Sweet Caroline” at the top of our lungs on the drive home. Fred Claus and Yes Virgina, There is a Santa Claus for our Christmas Eve movies. Cookie dough for Santa (our kids know he prefers the dough), cheese for Santa Mouse (a favorite Christmas book) and carrots for the reindeer. Kenny reads Twas the Night Before Christmas and then the kids go upstairs and watch Madagascar and play the game Sorry every year while I wrap and Kenny crashes on the couch with Family Man on in the background. (He’s always a huge help after 10:30 pm.. ha.) Like I said.. so random! Every year we add something new to the mix and then it becomes part of the Christmas Eve tradition. I love the night and these four people so very much. :)
Here are a few random pics I had on my camera that I never shared of my kitchen at night. I added some twinkle lights to my garland over my range and they make the kitchen feel so cozy!
I didn’t get around to sharing all of my Christmas decor this year! The month just flew by too quickly. But the kitchen was my favorite so we’ll focus on that and next year I’ll be more on top of it.
Funny.. I feel like I’ve said that before. Ha.
Happy holidays to you and your family! I love you and hope you enjoy this special time of year. Good things are coming in 2021! I can feel it.
