I’ve enjoyed taking a lovely break with my family for Christmas. It was so fun sharing our first Christmas as a family with Claire.
We started the day in PJs and having fun playing with other people’s present boxes and tissues.
Beans in his obligatory Christmas PJs 🙂
Literally my favorite picture of the year, I think!
Claire opening her gift from us, which was 5 books that she is currently loving chewing, er, uh reading.
Claire made out pretty well with a lot of books, some stuffed animals, a cool talking Bee VTec toy, and four super cute new outfits.
Playing with all her toys. Melts my heart!
Christmas for the adults, we did a dirty Santa gift exchange. I got a really nice bamboo cutting board. I also got a whole new running outfit from my in-laws, which was a nice surprise! The whole family also chose to do homemade gifts this year. We gave cookies and limoncello. Everyone else’s gifts were also really creative from bath salts to homemade marshmallows. It’s definitely something I’d like to do in future years because it was so personal and meaningful.
After being away from home for so long, I am feeling ready to get back in a routine again. I have big plans for some new fitness goals and healthy eating that I might share soon if I get the chance.
I hope you have a happy New Year’s Eve. Mine will be spent driving back to Texas – woo hoo!
