Christmas Morning 2017


In an effort to leave 2017 in 2017, we’ve been cleaning up and cleaning out all. week. long. Seriously, 2018 goals? OWN LESS. But prior to the madness of organizing + trashing, Christmas morning came and went in the usual tornado of excitement.

We did the usual toys + family breakfast, with a mix of old traditions and new:  I left the girls Biscoff cookies in their stockings with a note from Yia Yia “from heaven” (they were one of her signature gifts), which was my way of bringing my mom into Christmas lightly. We tied a ribbon from the top of the stairs to each of the girl’s Santa gifts, which was an idea we gleaned from the movie “Arthur Christmas.” Emma Vance asked for a Glitterling, and Cricket asked for a Doc McStuffins Get Better Baby CeCe with the NICU cart. Ryan got the girls a John Deer car (which is slated to be suped-up soon), and I made a stage for performing and a clubhouse closet for the playroom. My dad and brother came over for breakfast (and to see what they each got the girls, haha), and they ate about 3 pounds of bacon between them like usual. ;) By noon, we were all Christmased-out, and the girls were practically making snow angels in the mess of their new toys. Oh to be a kid again! And now the girls are already talking about what Santa’s going to bring next year…go figure! ;)
